How to repair a Stanley powerlock 16 measuring tape ?

From the the attached photo I see that you have completely disassemble the tape. This makes the tape almost impossible to reassemble. The spring has to be back wound fully, the blade attached and retracted back into the case using the back wound spring. This requires special equipment that is not overly complicated, however not possible to make for a once off use. I have designed, built and trained operators to use this type of equipment in a production situation, however in my 35 years of experience I have never been seen anyone back wind a spring by hand. Sorry to say but the tape is ready for the trash.

Hi. My Stanley IntelliTape 0-77-008 has an 'error'

Mine did the same thing. To fix it I extended the tape all the way out. As I retracted the tape it started working. Try it and let me know if this worked for you.

I have a 12' stanley powerlock series 33-212. I want to replace the blade but can't get it open to start

You don't need to open it to replace the blade. You pull the blade all the way out and you will see that it is hooked to a spring. All you have to do is unhook the old blade and connect the new one and slowly let it wind back in. Remember to hang on tight to the spring so it doesn't snap back in before you get the new blade connected. If you do need to take it apart, there should be screws holding it together.

How to replace the tape on a stanley 25" tape measure

Did it break and go flying up inside there? Take it back where you bought it, tell them you want a new one, they will replace it, all Stanley tools are warranted, the dealer may not want to do it, but he has to. You will never get it right by replacing the blade. I take that back, you might get it right.

Install tape

Pull it all the way out ... have a nail ready to put into the hole just past the end on the tape, in the spring. Remove the tape. Install the new one (insert the tang into the hole and twist). Remove the nail and carefully allow the spring to pull the new tape in.

I hope this works for you
