Lufkin, a premium tool brand from Apex Tool Group (Sparks, MD) has announced that its new Legacy Series tapes are now available for purchase at select hardware stores, home centers, and online retailers, bringing modern features and improved performance to a classic tape measure design. The Legacy Series vintage square-label, mirror-chrome casing is a throwback to what might have hung on tool belts in the 1960s. Its build, however, is pure modern day, with the latest in durability, performance and control technologies, says Lufkin. Features include:
- Hi-Viz orange ribbed accent stripes that improve grip while providing a striking design signature.
- An extra wide sliding lock button, adding comfort and control, and easing the release and return of the blades, which are nylon-coated for improved durability.
- Matte finished blades, reducing glare and improving contrast to aid precision under any lighting condition.
- Availability in five different lengths. The 12-inch tape has a 3/4-inch blade, while the 16’, 25’, 30’ and 35’ tapes each feature a quad-riveted life-extending end hook and one-inch wide blades that deliver eight feet of standout.
