Swivel Belt Clip for Measurements
An easier way to remove and secure a tape measure.
When working in the shop or on small jobs, I usually don’t wear my tool belt. I just clip my tape measure to my belt instead. But sometimes it can be difficult to find the edge of my belt or pants, or the tape doesn’t clip all the way and falls off. To solve this problem, I bought a swivel belt clip like the kind used with cell phones. I took the clip (held on by one screw) off my tape and replaced it with the round tab that comes with the swivel belt clip as shown in the drawing. Then I attached the swivel belt clip, and now it’s much easier to remove and secure my tape measure to my side. These belt clips can be found on Amazon for about $10.
