Spider Tool Holster - Tape Measure Set
The Spider Tool Holster is designed to improve the way you carry your tools!
The Tape Measure Set provides a fast, self-locking solution to replace the cumbersome clip located on most tape measures. Using the Tool Tab's simple peel and stick design, the setup for this kit can be done in less than a minute!
The Tool Holster is a belt-mounted carrying system for power tools and can be clipped onto casual belt or tool belt. The holster has a self-locking design which locks / secures your tool whenever something is holstered. The Tool Holster is compatible with all Spider Tool Holster products.
Tool Tabs lock securely into our Spider Tool Holster and prevent tool rotation and bouncing. Tool Tabs use a high strength 3M peel-and-stick design. This allows them to adhere to any flat surfaced tool such as a tape measure, or bit box. For best results we recommend thoroughly cleaning the surface of your tool with isopropyl alcohol, pressing the Tool Tab in place for one minute, and then allowing 24 hours for the adhesive to properly cure. For added security when applying to tape measures, insert the OEM screw through the provided counterbored hole of the Tool Tab and tighten in place.
EASY TO ATTACH: Holster easily clips on to any regular belt or tool belt. Tool Tabs peel-and-stick 3M adhesive is easy to apply and securely adheres to your tool.
SELF-LOCKING DESIGN: Holster will automatically lock when a tool is inserted. To unlock, lift the lock lever upwards with your thumb while lifting up the tool.
HEAVY DUTY: Tool Holster's nylon composite and high tensile steel construction stand up to rough everyday use.

I APPLIED MY STUDS TO SEVERAL TAPE MEASURES, WORKING ON ONE JOB MY TAPE KEPT GETTING CAUGHT ON OBSTRUCTIONS AND PULLED LOOSE. THE HOLDER AND THE STUD DID NOT FAIL, THE TAPES LABEL FAILED!! SO YOU MAY WANT TO REMOVE THE LABEL BEFORE APPLYING THE STUD. ALSO ANOTHER MINOR ISSUE IS THE CABLE TIE REINFORCEMENT FOR THE LARGER HANDLE STUD HOLDER (DRILL ETC) I HAD TO USE 2 CABLE TIES TO GET AROUND THE HANDLE, AND THIS LEFT 2 "KNOTS" UNDER MY HAND, UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING I DO REALLY LIKE THE SYSTEM, JUST NEEDS A COUPLE TWEAKS AND A WARNING TO REMOVE THE TAPE MEASURE LABEL :)
It takes a minute to get used to unlocking the mechanism, but it stays on my bibs unlike the stock fastening systems on the fat max or Milwaukee tape measures. Make sure your tape does not have a raised area to lock in the factory clip.
I'm welder I bought this for a tape measure I haven't used it at work yet but I did get it on my tape and tryed it out and I'm completely satisfied with the results this far
I bought this for use with a tape measure in order to save my pants from constantly hooking & unhooking it from my pocket- so far so good, and I've outfitted other people in the office with them as well (structural engineers). I find that the metal clip can scuff up a nice leather belt, so I've been using dedicated nylon gun belts for site visits. Not only does this save my pants (and dressier belts), it's much safer than having a tape measure clipped to a belt or pants, so it's much less likely to take a tumble from a ladder or staging.
I love it it works great!
