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

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Built quality seems to be very good, not inferior to any one in local market.
Cons:
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 **.
Other:
Oh God, that smell is so bad ...
Bottomline:
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.
