Taping Diagonals

Taping Diagonals

Measuring diagonals with a tape was a pain for
me because the hook would always fall off the
corner before I could get a reading. Finally I
adapted a tape by riveting a small, notched
block to the end, as shown. Now I can slip the
tape over the corner of the cabinet to be
squared with no fear of it slipping off. This is a
good use for broken steel tapes missing their
first couple of inches.
