Yard and Meter Sticks

Proper tools for measuring make projects go smoothly and help prevent wasted materials. While rulers work well, yardsticks handle larger measurements without the need for multiple steps. With options in a variety of materials and increments, Staples carries measuring tools that keep projects moving, like protractors and tape measures

Consider the Materials for Yardsticks
These measuring tools come in several different materials that provide benefits depending on the project. Wood materials provide durability that withstands frequent use indoors. Consider wood products with lacquer or protective stains when using them in areas with water or other wet materials. Some wooden tools feature end caps that protect against splitting and chipping. Heavy-duty wooden models are thicker, providing additional strength for use in demanding environments.

Aluminum yardsticks are lightweight, making them a good choice for frequent use. They are slightly flexible, which protects against breaking and bending during use and storage. Stainless steel products resist gouging along the edges, ensuring each line is precise. These options are difficult to bend, resulting in a tool that withstands heavy use. Stainless steel is also weather resistant, providing a measuring tool that withstands exposure to the elements.

Understanding Measuring With Yardsticks
These products are 3 feet long, which provides a full yard of measuring ability. This provides an option for measuring larger projects, plywood, drywall, lumber and more. All yardsticks have 1-inch markings at the minimum, with most providing at least 0.5-inch markings as well. There are models with lines in 0.125-inch and 0.0625-inch increments, ensuring precise measurements when working with detailed plans. Units with markings on both sides of the stick make it easier to read while working. These options also use larger numbers and markings, helping to reduce eyestrain and fatigue.

Do Yardsticks Have Additional Features?
There are measuring tools with raised numbers and increment markings. These options help users identify measurements when working with awkward angles or in low-visibility situations. Some options have plastic end caps that protect against chipping, without adding too much additional weight. Products with holes in one end provide a convenient way to hang it for storage. There are hinged sticks that fold up when not in use for easier storage.

What Is the Proper Storage for Yardsticks?
Store yardsticks on a flat shelf or surface to protect against rippling and warping. Hanging the tool against a wall or pegboard ensures the edges remain straight and are protected against bumps, drops, and nicks.

Are There Other Uses for Yardsticks?
Measuring sticks have numerous uses in arts and crafts projects. Use them for adding decorative touches along the edges of shelving in the classroom or sewing room. Attach rulers vertically to two of these tools and create interesting garden fencing. Make sure to treat the surfaces with a stain or lacquer for protection against rain and wetness. Cut yardsticks into varying lengths to create picture frames and wall art. Use sticks in varying lengths around circular mirrors or clocks to add a starburst pattern to any room.
