    Tape Measure Organization

    I don't know about the rest of you but I have a ton of tape measures! They are all over in my shop and garage. Years ago I made a simple steel plate, screwed to the end of a shelf, to clip tape measures to so I would know where they were at.
    This is one of the many plates I have around the shop now.

    Loaded. There is one on each end of this bench.

    I have gotten fancy with a few of them. Bending them up so they are a bit proud of the mounting surface.

    As you can see they are also good spots to hang a marker on.
