Key Features

1. Top Mounted Window  When designing the Gatortape we wanted to make measuring easy.  Extending the blade, the measurement is clearly displayed in the viewing window and can be estimated to fractions of a millimetre

2. Stable Back Plate – When taking accurate measurements, you need to ensure that you are taking measurements perpendicular to the measuring surface, that’s why we designed the back plate to ensure this. The back plate also allows the Gatortape to self support for vertical measurements

3. Powerful Snout Lock – Locking in a measurement can sometimes be a pain, the design of the Gatortape ensures the body is always sitting comfortably in your hand with a finger on the snout to lock in the measurement.

4. High Visibility Blade Design – Accuracy is at the heart of Gatortape and you can always be sure of the reading with Class 1 precision (+/- 1.1mm over 10m) and bright high visibility markings on a black background making everything as clear as can be.

5. Points Of Measurement – The Gatortape comes into its own when taking inside measurements, placing the back plate against one surface and extending the blade to the other takes the guess work out of internal measurements. This is not to say it cant be used like a normal tape measure and it’s true zero tip allows for external measurements too.

For measuring curtain drops on your curtain poles and curtain tracks please take a look at the GatorTape Curtain Claw . This small but clever tool allows you to measure curtain drops with absolute ease. No more guessing or bending the blade.



Easy to Read

The large viewing window makes every measurement easy to read and highly accurate. The measurement displayed is from the tip of the blade to the back of the tape body.


Inside Measurements

Measure from base to tip. The base plate ensures your measurement is perpendicular to the measuring surface and the measurement is clearly displayed in the window using the Class 1 rated 25mm wide blade


Free Standing

The baseplate not only ensures your measurements are perpendicular to the measuring surface but also allows the tape to stand unsupported with the tape extended


Curtain Drops

The GatoTtape has a unique accessory (the Curtain Claw) that allows you to attach it to a curtain pole or track for easy and accurate curtain drop measurements
