The Metric Hip Chain allows Environmental Scientists to measure distances in less than ideal conditions. It features a latch to hold the counter in place. Inside the unit, a wheel brake flap has a friction pad attached without glue. The five-digit counter is both custom built and corrosion resistant.
The hip chain has rivet-reinforced belt loops, rivet-mounted windows, a locking lid and knurled metal reset knob. All these features give the professional environmental scientist a dependable option for measuring distance.
