Measuring height and length is always a problem for many people. There are people who can't understand difference between various measuring units hence such people are always in big confusion on how to get right measurement. People go crazy when they can't get the right conversation due to lack of knowledge about measuring unit.
Just imagine yourself filling out a document for college admission or for employment and there is one column which requires your height to be mentioned in centimeter (cm). There are measuring tapes which only provide details in feet (ft) such tapes are often used to measure height.
There are people who don't ask others on how to convert feet (ft) into centimeter (cm) because it might cause huge embarrassment to them in public. Measuring length of anything through a tape which has only feet (ft) as unit makes it impossible for a layman to understand but there are tapes which have all kinds of conversion on it which helps a user to know the details in all measuring units.
There is no need to get embarrassed in public, if you are desperately looking for ft to cm converter, just log-on to internet and search for conversion website in search engine like google, within few seconds you will be able to find out the exact measurement in centimeter (cm). Keep in mind that you should always buy a standard measuring tape which consists of all kinds of measuring units so that you don't have to keep asking people about conversion format.
One can also buy small portable ft to cm converter for home use because quite often one needs to know the exact length in cm and such converters can also be used for converting in different measuring units. Such small portable converters come at a very low price.
Often in some jobs like carpentry, the carpenters always have to keep measuring the length and breadth of the area in which furniture needs to be made; in such cases at times many carpenters have only meters which give measurement in feet (ft) but many-a-times when they need plywood from hardware store they need to tell the dimensions in centimeter (cm) hence in such situation having a portable measurement converter would help in getting plywood of right dimension.
A plumber might also find himself in a similar situation while measuring a pipe hence for all those people who are in a job where measurement is to be done, it is better for them to get a measuring tape with all types of conversion metrics.
