I think it is

Bolt

Loose means trouble
tight means good

as in loose screw (no need to explain.)

seen with my male
useless without him

It is with nut

stand there in south
lonely, cold and in white

Refers to the mount bolt (credits : OP)

protect when closed, but
opened before fire

may be referring to this : This was my original guess. Thanks OP for clue it refers to this

can measure well, but
changes scales per material

bolt is a unit of measurement used as an industry standard for a variety of materials from wood to canvas(It is also used for fabric)

Title : I thought I had super natural powers

Cute little dog named 'bolt' from a 2008 film Bolt

  • $\begingroup$ Right answer. But can you try and explain the clue "stand there in south..."? The clue "protect when closed..." is regarding this. $\endgroup$ – Krishnabhadra Aug 23 '16 at 3:46
  • $\begingroup$ Well about south, I got La Bolt the town in South Dakota & Bolt, West Virginia. Is that it? Or do I need to dig deeper? $\endgroup$ – smriti Aug 23 '16 at 4:25
  • $\begingroup$ No, not La Bolt. Cold, white etc are hints. :) It is easy. $\endgroup$ – Krishnabhadra Aug 23 '16 at 5:58
  • $\begingroup$ It has something to do with snow? $\endgroup$ – smriti Aug 23 '16 at 6:10
  • $\begingroup$ Yes. It is related with snow :-) $\endgroup$ – Krishnabhadra Aug 23 '16 at 6:29

I guess it is :

a seat belt.

Because:

Loose means trouble
tight means good

It obviously must be tight enough.

seen with my male
useless without him

Need a connector, and useless without it.

protect when closed, but
opened before fire

When closed with the connector, it protects the driver/passenger.

can measure well, but
changes scales per material

It also adjusts to the size of the person.

  • $\begingroup$ Sorry for late reply, just couldn't get into a computer. Good guess, but not the answer. Two clues, opened before fire and title is also a clue. Thanks for attempting though :) $\endgroup$ – Krishnabhadra Aug 23 '16 at 3:41
