The XP Tape Measure is a tough tape measure yet featuring a tougher case, tougher blade coating, and tougher hook connection. Built around Dual-Core Technology – a patented spring system that utilizes two retracting springs in an impact-resistant, heavy-duty case – the DWHT36225 is reengineered from the inside out. The result is a compact, professional-duty ergonomic tape with a case designed for a better fit in the user’s hand. Using the tool, builders and contractors alike will benefit from a strong blade that features 13 feet of straighter, truer blade standout, and a tougher hook connection reinforced to reduce breakage near the hook. The 25-foot tape measure is made in the USA. Additional sizes will be introduced later this year. Key features include:


•The impact-resistant PC/ABS and rubber case is engineered to survive drops up to 60 feet.

•Integrated lock protection guards the lock button when dropped.

•Built-in lanyard slot offers an additional security option.


•Guaranteed Tough, the XP Tape Measure features 9 inches of heavy-duty thermoplastic coating at the beginning of the blade to provide 3X more blade protection than DWHT33975 and reduces blade breakage near the hook.

•Our toughest coating covers the entire blade and protects the paint for long blade life and maximum protection against abrasion, wear and rust4.

•The 1 ¼ inches wide high-carbon steel blade provides 13 feet of straighter blade standout for increased reach and efficiency.


•The tool features the company’s toughest hook connection1 reinforced to reduce blade breakage.

•The extra-large end hook grabs construction material from all four sides making grabbing objects while taking measurements easy.

•A durable, three-rivet fastened hook connection along with the 9” of thermoplastic coating supports a stronger, longer life.

The reinforced housing also has a newly redesigned screw less belt clip, making it easy to attach, secure, and remove. For increased ease of use across a variety of applications, a new quick-release lock design engages easily and holds the blade tight, while a built-in lanyard slot provides convenience and security for use on elevated job sites.
