WORLDKINGS - On This Day - July 14, 2022 - Alvin J Fellows patents tape measure in 1868

12-07-2022

(Worldkings.org) On July 14, 1868, a Connecticut man named Alvin J. Fellows patented the spring-click tape measure. The difference between his tape measure and the ones that came before was a “spring-click,” in the words of the patent, that allowed the user to lock the tape measure when it was extended, “so as to hold the tape at any desired position.”
