Title: TAPE-MEASURE DEVICE HAVING AN L-SHAPED PIVOTABLE END PIECE HAVING A SLOT FOR GUIDING A TOOL
Abstract:
The invention relates to a tape-measure device provided with a means for measuring and/or marking/cutting an object subjected to said device, including a tape, a shell (3) provided with a reel, an opening (5) enabling said tape (2) to pass through the wall of the shell (3), an end piece (6) attached to the distal end of said tape (2), a stop button (7) for said reel for blocking said tape or, on the contrary, for enabling the rolling/unrolling of said tape (2). According to the invention, said means for marking/cutting an object consist of a guide shoulder (8) formed on said shell (3), a guide opening (9) at said end piece (6) for the removable insertion of the end of a marking/cutting tool, and a sliding surface (60) for said end piece (6) for translatably engaging the surface of the object to be marked/cut in order to mark/cut said object using one of the surfaces thereof when said guide shoulder (8) is simultaneously slid along an edge of said object and said end piece (6) of the tape against the surface of the object to be marked/cut.
