Tape Measures

Tradesmen who use a tape measure thousands of times a year know what makes one stand out from the rest. It’s with their input that Apex™ Tool Group developed its new Crescent® Lufkin® Shockforce™ and Shockforce Nite Eye tape measures with patent-pending two-sided blade design and 14’ of standout.

The compact design features metal roll bars to protect the lock button against drop impact damage, while the simulated diamond-coated end hook provides 50% more hook grasp to prevent surface slippage. The dual-sided print, combined with enhanced print size, provide superior legibility for quicker measuring. The Nite Eye offers the same features, but with a high visibility green-on-matte black blade to be seen in any light condition.






Crescent Lufkin Shockforce Tape Measures are available in 16’, 25’, and 35’ options at hardware stores, home centers, online retailers, and industrial and commercial distributors.

Crescent’s product line includes Crescent adjustable wrenches, mechanics hand tools, and sets; Crescent Wiss® snips, scissors, shears, knives, and trade tools; Crescent Lufkin® measuring tapes, rules, and wheels; Crescent Nicholson® files and saws; Crescent H.K. Porter® heavy‑duty cutting products; and Crescent JOBOX® on-site, flammable liquid and truck storage products.
