Wide Tape. Heavy-duty tools previously sold under the Stanley FatMax Xtreme name are now being marketed as Stanley Bostitch products. The Bostitch 33-001 25-foot tape measure contains Stanley's widest tape — 11/4 inches, with a standout distance of 13 feet. An extra-large end hook with wide "ears" lets you easily hook the tape on a distant stud or wall corner without turning it sideways and collapsing it. The item costs $25.
