          This skeleton knight is ready to settle some old scores, and right in time for your Halloween guests. As if risen from the crypts of medieval times, this spooky figurine is dressed in knight attire with a sword. The skeleton’s glowing LED light eyes and moving mouth are sure to boost your festive display this season. A motion senor activates the eerie noise of the 72 in.-tall skeleton.

          The base is really straight forward and each piece is individually labeled to make it fool proof. Each piece is locked on to the other and so is quite sturdy when complete
          Once the clothing was carefully slipped over the base, the head is fixed on, again no problems. I was impressed with the way the manufacturer has made then to look like Knights Templar. The clothing itself has been made to look ancient yet it is quite tough cloth. The supplied batteries were already installed and although they were not up to par, they were enough to give a demonstration of the mouth opening and closing and eyes light up. The vocals were evident after a battery change )3 X 3 AA)

          This charming pirate skeleton adds seven-seas charm to your Halloween decor. Standing 5 ft. tall once assembled, this festive, outdoor decoration is dressed in pirate garb and fully-equipped with a captain hat and sword. The battery-operated pirate is sure to impress the trick-or-treaters. The figure’s mouth and LED eyes are activated by a motion sensor.

          The base is straight forward to assemble as well as the clothing, although I found it somewhat difficult to locate the loops to hold the trousers up. They are there on the coat but are thin and hard to wrap around the buttons. That said, the only major fault I found was that as I went to slowly maneuver the sword to its rightful place, I heard this snap and the arm swung down. When I took it apart to inspect, I saw that the framework that is attached to the arm had snapped. This was most likely my fault, even though I was careful and was only positioning the sword as per the picture.

After a few minutes he came running down the stairs shouting `Dad, dad, they’ve only sent one bolt` Handing him the instruction paperwork that has clear and understandable `how to` and with pictures, he looked it and said `But they’ve only sent one bolt` And to think that I sent him to college and he is in his final year of mechanical Engineering. Heaven help us all. The one screw they sent was to secure the bed frame and all the rest of the screws were already screwed inside the headboard/footboard and the 4 side bed frames. All that is required of them is unscrew each one enough so that the metal brackets slot over them and then each screw is tightened.
          The wooden slats that rest on the bed frame are to be positioned so that the Velcro faces down in order for them to stick without moving.
          Took me one hour to assemble (sons estimate -3 days)
          Every part of the bed frame which include all the side panels head and footboard is excellent along with superb quality and a great easy to assemble parts.
          A good solid frame at a very good and reasonable asking price. Returnable

The brass holder with an assist bar is a heavy duty one with an excellent design with quality that that explains the asking price. The pivoting rod is especially useful for the handy capped individual as well as the assist bar.

The main purpose of using a foot valve is that it helps to hold the prime on the transfer pump and prevents small pieces from getting in to the water supply.
          Made of cast iron, this switch less unit with the potential of a 11 Amp currant flow at 110V, this water pump sucked the water up from 30 feet down my well and then up an incline of approx.’ 40 feet high. It then travels 135 feet to up the incline to the storage tank that is another 18 feet off the ground with ease. The tank bladder holds 120 gallons and was filled in about 20 minutes. The wiring was straight forward as I was simply replacing an old 2-year pump that had been fried following a lightning strike.
          Am very satisfied at the way it pumps water all the way to my storage tank, and considering the length of its travel along with the height of the tank, this well pump is more than adequate.

          The pressure gauge displayed 42psi during the first initial use and subsequent use dropped to 35psi (the 135-foot hose already being primed after the first use.
          Very impressive cast iron construction that is corrosion Resistant. The assembly which included the wiring took only 20 minutes and was pumping water up to the storage bladder a few minutes later. Very impressed with the power and speed in which it filled the tank.
          Has a dual voltage of 115/230V and is self-priming and a thermal Overload Protection
          It comes with a 12-month warranty and has a 90-day return policy.
          Excellent instructions supplied.

          Okay....I figured it would require a junction box that was recessed into the ceiling in order for it to be hard wired ,but how does the light connect to the junction box. For example, does the light come apart so the base of it can be fixed to the junction box?
