Self-Retracting Metal Tape Measure Key Chain

Sturdy measuring tape for crafting, making, and carrying with you everywhere


I've bought lots of little plastic tape measures . . . and they always seem to break. 

That's why I searched high and low for this sturdy metal self-retracting tape measure with a key-chain attachment. Now I can take it with me everywhere, or just let it live in my knitting kit. 


Note: The tape retracts immediately and does not have a mechanism for staying extended . . . beside you holding it where you want it. Extends to 27" (68.5cm) with an additional inch on the housing for a total of 28" (71cm).

  • Classic Chain in four sizes

    Classic Purse Chain



    The Classic Purse Chain has a timeless quality that makes it the perfect choice to use with Noni purse frames that have built-in loops. To turn clutches into handbags, or handbags into shoulder bags, use the lobster claw ends to clip onto built-in or our screw-in Handle Loops.

    Our 10" (25cm) and 12" (30cm) chains are perfect for tiny bags or to convert most any bag into a hand bag that can slip over your arm. The 8" (20cm) chain is perfect for small handbags. With our tiniest bags (Little Gems, Water Melon Bites, Tiny City, Small Flavor and Just the Change) the chain slips over the hand so a purse can be worn as a bangle or bracelet.

    The Empire Frame in antique silver with its heavy matching chain and rhinestone studded closure is beautifully classic, elegant. Like the Empire style furniture for which it is named, the Empire purse frame has carved, curving lines and a solidity of form and construction that make it the perfect choice for both delicate evening bags and larger bags with vintage styling.

    Carry the bag as a handbag with the chain closed inside, or wear it as a shoulder bag: either way, the Empire Frame elevates any bag - felted knitted fabric, woven fabric, or otherwise - to a level of refined sophistication.
