    You may use a flatted broom handle. I use them 'cause they are more accurate, but you have to flat them and to put a nail into.

    the best thing to do, is go to an office store, and get one of those colapsible rulers for kids, the ones that have lockin hinges, and you can fold it and stick it in your pocket
