Don't call these "plastic" squares!
Ok, it's totally cool if you call these composite squares "plastic."
We just want you to know that they are composite squares, made from high impact polystyrene - which is like plastic on steroids.
All 4 of these squares are basically the same as the one and only Speed Square, but these 4 are exceptionally good for use with siding and other delicate materials, since it won't mar soft finishes. Plus, its 8-Inch size means it's ideal for marking cuts in 8-Inch siding. Look for the diamond cut out - then you know you've got the best - Swanson Tool Company squares.
Winner of the Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice Award and the retailers' choice award of distinction, the Speedlite square is an all-around crowd pleaser.

The innovative Speedlite square is everything you know and love about the speed square, but it’s especially great for use with siding and other delicate materials, since it won’t mar soft finishes.
