The Gripper X was designed and developed to be a compact tape measure packed with useful features. The 25' Gripper X has an ultra compact rubberized case that's just begging to get roughed up. This Komelon tape measure also includes a two color, double sided nylon coated blade that has large read numbers 30% larger than the standard. The Gripper X will grab onto almost anything with its large, flared end hook. If you want functionality, toughness, and a long lasting tape measure, the Gripper X is for you.
