Repair lufkin measure tape

Asking Lufkin is your best option as they might repair or replace for free or low cost.
The Official Site of Lufkin Brand Measuring Products
There are videos out there that will show how to take tape measures apart. However it can be tricky and if you are not careful the whole thing can become a mess to deal with. Most companies will not offer repair or replacement if you have tried to fix it yourself.

I purchase a Lufkin tape measure and now the tape will only extend out 18" and no further. I have checked and the "lock" button is not on. How do I go about getting this replaced? I use this tape...

When you pull it out eightteen inches, does it feel like it's under tension like normal? Is it retracting like normal? If so pull it out hard, in a quick tug, you probably got something in it. It's just bound.

How do you change replacement blade for hw100 lufkin 100' tape?

Pull the blade out all the way to approximately 5" past the end of the tape. Some tapes have a hole that you can put a nail to hold them open. If not you have to hold firm, and turn blade of tape 90 degrees, and remove old tape. Install new tape, let it go back into case slowly.

I dont know what it measures by? my dad bought a lufkin 100' 1706 and he is trying to figure out how to use it because the measurements seem to be off. for example he compares it to other measuring...

Hi...sorry for the bad image but if you can make it out ...this tape measure is offered in two types of measurements either Feet/Inches/Eighths or Tenths/Hundredths ...if your father's is off by an inch my guess is that the Lufkin is measuring in Tenths/Hundredths.

Hope this helped!

Tape broke on W928 tape measure

I looked around and can't find a replacement tape for this 12 footer. The tape measure itself seems to be no longer available.
I suggest recycling it and buying a new tape measure.

I pulled my Lufkin luorolok tape out the whole way and now it won't retract - Help!?!

You need to take the screws out of the side but you may have broken the spring recoil mechinasum you can get a new tape but if the recoil is damaged its not worth fixing it would coast you more then buying a new one

How do you fix a broken tape and what size "rivits" to repair a 100' 1/4" tape

pick up and throw out. purchase new one. If the tape head or foot. (End grabby bit) has broken or moved to far the tape will not read accurate. So if youre using a tape that has to be calibrated or has to be accurate its useless.

hope it helps.
