Most tape measures read from left to right, which is OK for just measuring, but becomes a problem when a right-hander needs to mark a measurement, especially when doing cut-off work – you end up either having to hold the pencil in your left hand or switching the tape to your left hand and then having to read tape markings that are upside down. We developed a line of tape measures for right-handers that read right to left. You can hold the tape in your left hand and mark with your right hand against markings that are facing you.
The original blindman's folding rule was so called because it could be read by weak eyes in bad light. One of our customers suggested we produce a tape measure with similarly bold markings. So we did.
Varying in length according to the Fibonacci series, the division markings taper slightly at the edge for finer precision. 12 ft long by 1" wide in a light but tough plastic case.
For left-handers, we offer a left-to-right reading version as well; it reads the same as a standard tape measure.
