This "Plus" model of our Gulick II tape measures features a wider retractable tape. And as always, every Gulick II tape measure makes it easy for anyone to accurately and repeatably measure various body dimensions. It eliminates the guesswork by applying a known amount of tension to the measuring tape. Therefore, accurate measurements are possible no matter who is doing the measuring.
If an ordinary tape measure (without our proprietary tension indicator device) is used to measure arm circumference (for example), the measurement will depend on how tightly the tape is pulled. If you pull harder and harder, tissue compression will be greater and greater, and the measured circumference will become smaller and smaller. Two consecutive measurements are usually quite different. If two or more people take the same measurement, the results rarely agree. It is clear that only by applying a constant tension (as all the Gulick II Tape Measures do), can accurate and repeatable measurements be taken. The self-retracting tape is kept at the desired length until the retract button is pushed.
|The most important part of the Gulick II Plus Tape Measure is its tensioning device, which provides a known amount of tension while a measurement is being taken. Each individual tensioning device is calibrated to our factory standard. The Gulick II Plus uses a stainless-steel compression spring -- this guarantees that the calibration will last a lifetime, since it is impossible to "over-compress" a spring of this type. And since this precision spring is made of stainless-steel, it will never rust or corrode -- again insuring the accuracy of the Gullick II Plus Tape Measure for a lifetime!||
Black Retractable Tape Body
The Gulick II Plus Tape Measure uses a 5/8 inch wide, 120 inch long, no-stretch, polyester reinforced, retractable tape with both centimeter and inch gradations. The tape is non-metallic to avoid the discomfort of a cold object touching the skin. It is ideal for measuring larger, non-muscular body types. The wide tape is easier to position and less prone to sliding into tissue folds. This extra-long tape facilitates measurements on large individuals. Includes a convenient clip-on lanyard which allows you to hang it around your neck. Ship wt. 2 lbs.
