Handy Ruler. Fans of auto-locking tape measures should check out the 150th-anniversary version of Klein's 25-foot Tape Stop Power-Return Rule. The oversized numbers and dual end hook are nice, but the device's most notable feature is the 1/8- and 1/4-inch scale measurements on the back of the blade. It costs $16.
