          These are absolutely ideal for my remote off the grid cabin. I used to have the ¾ inch copper piping run through several inner walls as well as the outside and that was fine until the well water pump started up via a generator which in turn produced a vibration which was, let’s say, `annoying`.
          The two main points that is an excellent design is, first and foremost, these tough plastic silencers open up to allow the pipe to slot into it, rather than having to remove it in order to slide it through. Second is the way the outside grips firmly onto the inside of the drilled hole and finally the two predrilled holes make for a perfect stable anchor

          This 5-piece bathroom set is well worth the asking price, even though I only receive 4 items as the 18-inch towel bar was missing but as always, it’s good to check the contents to assure that all are present.

          This unique brass drawer pull is an excellent addition (assuming you buy a set of them of course, which I did after taking a close look at the quality) They are heavier than I expected for the cost, but in a nice way
          Supplied is a set of screws 2 @ I inch and 2 @1-1/2 inch and depending on the depth of the project will give you the length of the screw needed.
          Each of the two screws I used threaded perfectly in to chamfered screw hole and the pull was flat against the finished wood.
          Well worth the asking price

          The Milwaukee ANSI Type R Class 2 High Visibility Performance Safety Vest is designed to carry more. The high visibility safety vest has 15 pockets including a clear ID holder, rear tablet pocket, and 3 internal pockets, equipping users with added storage. All front pockets are reinforced with durable 600D tear resistant materials capable of withstanding rough job site conditions. To reduce pressure around the neck, comfortable padding was incorporated around the collar. The safety vest features a quick internal size adjustment providing users with a better fit as well as a durable pass-through slit for fall protection gear. This allows users to wear the same vest in the summer over a t-shirt or in the winter over a jacket. Additionally, a zipper closure on the safety vest provides users with ultimate job site security. The high visibility reflective vests are required if users are working around traffic going 25 mph or working around heavy machinery. This includes construction, road construction, traffic direction, utility crews, and survey crews. Yellow and orange color options are available, as well as CSA compliant safety vests. Size: 3x. Gender: unisex. Age Group: adult.

Each pocket as well as the rest of this Milwaukee vest has been stitched with precision and has used excellent secure stitch. The Velcro on each of these reinforced pockets is also an excellent idea as too many times, with bending and having to crawl at times at narrow spaces, I have lost items. Not so now as each pocket is firmly closed.
          The zipper is also a great addition. It easily zips up and releases without effort.
          The ability to adjust the internal size is also I think, a novelty but one that is essential for every adult to adjust according to his/her body mass.
          It is difficult to say which is the best feature as all of it has its own positives, but I guess that in my own assessment, the one that stands out the most to me anyway is the internal adjustment as this allows the addition of extra upper body clothing and this vest will still fit over them .
          A final word is to its padded collar. Way to go Milwaukee. It is perfect.

          It being the first time using from the Oatley range and so it was interesting to see how it rated from other brands I have used concerning toilet flanges.
          The first thing to note is that it has a four-inch diameter PVC that is permanently installed in the flange. The cap itself of course has to be removed before installation and the four hammer symbols showing where to strike them are useful. The metal ring is also a big plus and, as I was not used to this top being able to turn in order to align to the fasteners is another big plus. Made with precision in mind, I am most certainly going to order more of the same.
          Pros: Easy to Install, good metal ring, easily rotated

          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?
