First time I pulled it the whole way out on wrote

I was doing some work at the yard and wanted to know the diameter of a huge water oak log from the base of the tree to make a work bench and when I pulled it out [which unfortunately was to short] I heard the spring unravel and it would not return. So as an avid tinkerer I took it apart and did find the spring had come loose at the center. It seems that the plastic center is too weak to hold the flat spring steel when pulled more than 3/4 of the way out. It was not too hard to fix and I know now not to pull it that far. The hardest part was wrapping all that flat spring and the tape together without it coming back apart, but it is do-able if you take your time.

Broke third time I used it on wrote

It broke the third time I used it. I was measuring a tree that 31-inch diameter and the tape would only rewind about 80% of the way.
