Up Tech Instruments HISS Laser Tape Measure 2022 REVIEW — MacSources

4 min readApr 15, 2022

Laser tape measure makes projects easier to measure.

In the past couple of years, I’ve been working on improving my home office. I’ve been adding different furniture pieces and removing items that no longer need to be part of the space. Before I select a piece of furniture, I measure the space I think it’s going to fit in and then check the dimensions of the item.

This is pretty typical behavior for someone remodeling or redecorating. I do end up having some trouble with the longer walls in the room though. I have an older tape measure but it has a kink in the tape and that means that I end up guessing sometimes. I don’t always have an extra set of hands to help hold the end of the measuring tape and that’s where the Laser Tape Measure comes into play.


The HISS Laser Tape Measure from Up Tech Instruments is a two-in-one digital distance measure. It can measure distances up to 196 feet and features both a 16-foot tape measure and a long-range laser. The laser has a lower level of diffraction, which ensures more accuracy downrange. The laser measuring tape can switch between measurement units (feet-inch, inch, inch decimal, feet decimal, and meter). A digital display is included with backlighting to provide an easy read of measurements.

The laser measuring tape is rugged and built with a magnetic hook. The body of the measuring tape is made with a nylon coating and the magnetic hook also acts as a mount for the laser when you need to take hands-free measurements. The laser measuring tape is a little larger than a standard 16-foot measuring tape and it takes two AAA batteries (included). A user manual also comes in the box along with a small screwdriver for battery installation.
