Okay seriously, where has the 16′ Foot QUICKDRAW PRO Self Marking Tape Measure been all my life? This brilliant device looks like any other professional grade tape measure from afar, but there’s one simple thing that sets this model apart from standard tape measures. Hiding inside is a mechanical lead pencil that marks any distance you want to measure. It makes short straight marks of course, or you can use it to mark off the perfect arc. It may end up being the best $7 you spend all month.
