It’s like that for a reason. When you butt the end of the tape against a wall for an inside measurement, that hook is compressing by the width of the hook itself. Or, conversely, when you hook it onto something for an outside measurement, it’s expanding by the width of the hook. It moves by design, if it does actually move by a whole cm that isn't right but anything less is right.

The ends of tape measures are not meant to be fixed in position, a good quality one has movement to account for an inside or outside measurement.
Thanks op. Ordered.
