I saw it for 4.67 on the website but not available for that price online anymore. However when I went to the store it ringed for 4.67.

I paid full price for one of these a few months ago and I've been quite happy with it. I'll probably go pick up another for less than $5.

I'll have to keep an eye on this. It hasn't dropped at my store yet that has inventory.

Poor title and description; misleading.
Nowhere do you state this is related to a TAPE MEASURE.
TAPE != TAPE MEASURE.

Recent reviews seem to be less than stellar.

For a moment, I thought this was like packing tape but made of stainless steel. EEK!

I have this. The auto lock mechanism wears out over time and now it can't hold on any more. I only used it for a few occasions.

I think I bought this or one just like it. Works great for me but I've only used it for about a month. Love the centimeters on the back. Wildly variable prices from $5 to $14 in stores near me.

I see 1 store near me that has it in stock at $4.67. I already have a regular tape measure. Kind of busted up tho. Is this a good deal for me to go an get it?

This guy does really good tests / reviews and the Kobalt came out among the top 4:

I have to say, I've owned a couple of Kobalt items and have been pleasantly surprised by their quality.

Sorry! First time posting a deal on SD. Edited the title, let me know if I missed anything else.

Just FYI, he was reviewing the magnetic Kobalt, not this one or the auto lock that's also in stores.
