          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I received the Home Decorators Collection Archdale 5-Light Brushed Nickel Pendant. It came in a huge box. I opened the box and there are a lot of parts. While putting it together some of the glass has bubbles in it that look bad. Also the fasteners to hold the glass to the brushed nickel frame are not the best. The fasteners are short & thread into both nuts. If they are threaded into one of the nuts all the way then they are too short. Poor engineering on the hardware that holds the glass. I will have to buy some longer studs for them because I don't want it falling apart after I install it. The quality of this product should be better for the price of this item.

          Pros: packaged really well in the box

          Viagrow Stick Traps protect plants from aphids, whiteflies, mosquitoes, gnats, trips, leaf miners, fruit-flies, leafhoppers, froghoppers, and other insects. Effective and easy to use, this non-poisonous trap works well when hung at stake or plant level and comes with 5 twist ties to use for hanging. Place traps every 7 ft. for best results.

          I received my package of 5 Viagrow Dual-Sided Yellow Sticky Traps for Flying Plant Insects. I removed one from the package. It wasn't easy to open at all. You have to be very careful not to get the sticky stuff on your hands or anything else. Its only dual sided if you open it up and fold it in half. If you open it and leave it long then it only has the sticky stuff on one side. It comes with 5 twist ties you can use for hanging. I hung one up in a garden window in the kitchen to see how it works. I will be trying them out in my garden next year in the summer to see if they really work.
          Pros: Functionality
          Cons: messy

          I received my Liberty 1-1/8 in. (28mm) Antique Brass Scallop Edge Round Cabinet Knob. You should read the installation instructions completely before starting. Make sure to take care not to scratch your cabinets and countertops while working with tools. The online instructions are wrote good and are easy to follow. The design and color of the knob looks really nice. The price is good so it won't break the bank. It comes with 2 lengths of screws so the installation will be easy.

          This fire safety sign is a general notice that a building is being protected by an automatic sprinkler system. It should be hung on the outside wall of the building. This striking red sign will notify the fire department on the presence of a sprinkler system so they get a heads-up on the situation even before entering the building. Color: white.

          I received my the plumber's choice 10 in. x 12 in. aluminum fire safety sign sprinklers throughout building in white. I have a garage that has sprinklers in it. The fire department does an inspection ever year to make sure are is working correctly. I hung it up on a beam common to the 2nd floor so you can see it when you open the front door. It is easy to read. It looks nice with the white background with the red lettering.

          I was so happy to receive my Swanson 8 in. sliding speedlite T-Bevel with a plastic handle. I'm glad it has a composite plastic handle. The the knob is serrated so it's easy to grip it and tighten it up easily. There are so many uses for this tool. I wish I would of had one years ago. It has a built in level too. The blade is made from stainless steel so it shouldn't rust. I'm happy with the quality.
          Pros: Accurate, Durable, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Long-Lasting, Sturdy
