I was measuring a backsplash on my kitchen counter and the measuring tape briefly dropped down when I went around an inside corner. It managed to instantly find that 1mm gap between my coffee maker plug and the outlet.
Nice little light show and the metal tape almost cut in half. The plastic housing on the tape saved me.
