Outline

This ruler, with its nonslip features, is ideal for precision cutting work. When the center is held down the nonslip feature on the back firmly anchors the ruler in place, and when the ends are held the nonslip feature can slide and move to a new position. The laser engraved "Grand Point" scale makes it easy to measure height and length, and a built-in magnet on the back is excellent for storage.

Evaluation

Until now, there were two kinds of rulers: the kind that slides and the kind that does not. It was only natural to have both kinds and use them separately according to the situation. With the back side partially cut on the diagonal, this ruler incorporates a simple yet strategic idea and design to make it slide or stay in place as desired. The wavy texture on the surface makes it easy to hold it in place by hand, the back rubber has a built-in magnet and the graduation is laser etched so it never fades. The well planned features make this a truly user-friendly ruler.
