"Slider" Keeps Tape Measure Moving
Anyone who works a lot with a tape measure will be interested in this new "Slider" that allows the free end of the tape to slide smoothly over rough surfaces such as grass, carpet, roofing, decking, etc.
  The 3-in. long Slider is made from plastic and is curved at one end. The end of the tape measure blade simply slips into a slot on the Slider.
  "It turns a 2-person job into a 1-person job, using half the effort. It's perfect for plumbers, roofers, carpenters, landscaping, carpet layers, concrete workers, and so forth," says inventor Dennis Dodge.
  "The Slider adds exactly 3 in. to the measurement. It's small enough to fit easily in your tool belt or pocket. And it makes a great stocking stuffer for Christmas."
  Two Sliders sell for $5 plus $1 S&H; or you can buy five sliders for $10 plus $1.50 S&H.
