          I was excited to get my Coast 400 Lumen Wide Angle Flood LED Headlamp. The model number is FL60. It is very light weight and fit on my head perfectly. The light is really bright on the high setting. It has 3 setting for the light. The biggest down fall is if you use it on the the battery life is 2 hours and 45 minutes. It is weather resistant & it looks nice. Coast backs the light up with a lifetime warranty.
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Strong, Sturdy
          Cons: battery life

The wrenches feature a reversing lever to quickly change the direction of the wrench.

          I was so happy to receive my 16 piece GearWrench Metric Reversible Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set. It looks like some of the quality with GearWrench has went downhill. Maybe their standards on quality changed and quality doesn't count anymore. The 21 mm wrench looks like it is already starting to rust on the open end, That makes me wonder how long the chrome finish is even going to last. In the description it says there is a 15゚ offset but the 9mm wrench looks to have about 5 degrees. The paper wrapper that was around the wrenches shows the sizes are stamped into the open end part of the wrench but these wrenches are not marked like that.

          I received my Franklin Brass Voisin 42 in. x 1-1/4 in. Decorative ADA Bathroom Shower Grab Bar in Stainless Steel. It's silver in color.

It comes with great instructions so you have many options on how you need to mount it. This grab bar is made with some very good quality. It comes with all the hardware for a easy installation. It is constructed with a rust-resistant stainless steel with incredible strength and durability. It is backed with a limited lifetime warranty. This product looks very nice. Anyone would be happy with this grab bar.

          I was so excited to get my Delta Angular Modern 42 in. Grab Bar in Champagne Bronze. I could tell by the weight of the box that this item came in then it was built very strongly. It is very heavy duty. I just need to figure out where I'm going to install it in our bathroom in the shower and tub area. We are almost in her mid sixties and this is going to be a great item to have in our bathroom. It says it will support up to 500 pounds. It looks awesome. I can't wait to get some drill bits to drill through the porcelain tile & mount it.
          Pros: Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Sturdy, Stylish

          I received my glacier bay treyburn 24 in. towel bar. I came with great instructions and a nice template so it made the job installing is pretty easy. It is very light weight. It comes with all the hardware. Use the template with a level to lay out and mount the small brackets to the wall, then push the ends onto the bracket then secure the ends with a set screws. It can hold 2 towels fairly good.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, great template, Good Instructions

          This quality set includes pliers and 6 bands. Set works by placing a band around the piston, covering the rings and hooking pliers into the band, then squeezing. With the band lightly around the piston, insert piston into cylinder and tap lightly with hammer handle to install. The Fine-tooth ratcheting lock allows you to compress bands in small increments. The great thing is the pliers can be used parallel or perpendicular to the cylinder block.
