Product testing: Baggage scale with tape measure

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - It is a real frustration when you're headed to the airport to take a trip and you're just not sure if your luggage will exceed the weight requirement.

You could throw it on a home scale to check but sometimes the bulky bags just won't stay upright long enough to get a proper reading.

That's where the baggage scale with tape measure comes in.

It promises to help you beat those excess weight charges.

Kristen and Ashley gave it a try on WBTV News Saturday Morning.

They purchased the scale at the As Seen on TV Store for $10.
