    New LeverLock® 25' tape rule incorporates added features
    in a compact dual material high impact case

    SUMMARY: Stanley introduces the redesigned LeverLock® 25' Tape Rule featuring a 20-percent smaller rounded bi-material case to improve functionality, increase comfort and help prevent the tape from slipping out of the user's hand. For added comfort, the Stanley® LeverLock® 25' Tape Rule includes a slip-resistant rubber grip and a rubberized blade-locking lever. A red blade lock override button allows the tape to be used in two modes. When the button is set with the locked padlock icon pushed out, the blade functions as it does in the current LeverLock® Tape Rule and will not retract unless the user depresses the black lever on the bottom of the tape rule case. When the button is set with the unlocked padlock icon pushed out, the blade extends and retracts freely.

    Atlanta, Georgia, February 8, 2002 - Stanley introduces its redesigned LeverLock® 25' Tape Rule. The new LeverLock® Tape Rule features a rounded and easy to hold bi-material case that is 20-percent smaller than existing LeverLock® tape rules, rubber grip and rubberized blade-locking lever improving functionality, increasing comfort and helping to prevent the tool from slipping out of the user's hand.

    The new Stanley® LeverLock® tape rule is also equipped with a blade lock override button that allows users to use the tape rule in two different modes. When the red blade override button is set with the locked padlock icon pushed out, the blade functions as it does in the current LeverLock® Tape Rule and will not retract unless the user depresses the black lever on the bottom of the tape rule case. When the button is set with the unlocked padlock icon pushed out, the blade extends and retracts freely.

    The LeverLock® 25' Tape Rule's multi-setting capability offers users the performance and versatility they need to successfully tackle a variety of projects, whether they are a pro on the jobsite, woodworking hobbyist in the workshop or homeowner in the garage.

    "This is an one of the most versatile and user friendly tape rules Stanley has ever produced," said Miguel Nistal, Vice President Global Product Management, Hand Tools. "We have incorporated all the features users demand from a tape rule into one multifunctional and easy to use tape."

    The Stanley® LeverLock® 25' Tape Rule is available at exclusive Preview Dealer retailers through June 2002. Beginning in July, it will be available at hardware stores and home centers wherever Stanley® products are sold. It has a suggested retail price of $9.99.
