Here’s a handy hint that that will allow you to measure an inside corner with precision and all you need is a credit card, a clip and your tape measure.
Luckily, we’ve got a simple trick to solve this quandary:
Using a foldback clip, clip a credit card to the tape measure close to the corner in question. With the end of the tape measure up against the other corner, slide the credit card along the tape measure until its edge is up against the corner being measured. Hold the credit card in place and carefully take the tape measure out from the corner. Straighten the tape measure and read where it lines up with the edge of the credit card that touched the corner – that’s the measurement you need.
We usually do this twice to doublecheck that we’ve got the measurement right. As they say, measure twice and cut once!
