          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.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Stylish

          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

          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.

          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. The bar is 1-1/4 inch in diameter which makes it better for gripping. It exceeds ADA weight load requirements by providing support for up to 500 pounds. 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.
