Good construction, but the smell ... – 5-Meter Engineering Pocket Tape Measure Reviews

Built quality seems to be very good, not inferior to any one in local market.
The only con founded until now is the very bad smell. Oh God, it smells so bad that I couldn't use it until now. I'm trying to remove the smell washing and leaving it at sunlight for several days, and after a month the smell still persists. I don't know if it will be usable any day because of this bad smell characteristic. I really don't know the bad smell origin, but probably it comes from some additive used at plastic or rubber, or from some glue used. But I didn't identified the smell as any solvente, as the smell seems to be like **.
Oh God, that smell is so bad ...
It's very hard to accept that a product can be sold smelling so bad. It's unusable until now and I believe it will be trashed soon, because I can't remove this very bad smell.
