          I run my own small company in the building trade and most times I receive blue prints that are simply rolled up but there are occasions when I get the drawings on Adir sticks and this stand is ideal for hanging them.
          What I like most is: 1) it is very easy and quick to assemble.2) the brackets swing out for easy removal of the clamps, no matter what size they are, (there is only one clamp supplied with this kit). 3) the swiveling heavy duty locking wheels are superb 4) Both the height and the length is adjustable to embrace any size of blueprint/drawing.

          I accept that it is only cosmetic but the painted frame work is far too easily, not only just scratched, but the paint comes off in larger areas with the slightest knock during assembly and if knocked against a hard surface and when sliding in the pieces together if not extremely careful, the paint peels off far too easily.
          But it does what it is intended for and well designed, but a better more robust paint could/should have been used and for this reason alone I take a star off the finish

          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 taking each item from the one carton (90LBS) and a successful check that all was good, we took the parts up into my son’s room in preparation of exchanging his10 year old bed. 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
          90-Day. Manufacturer Warranty1 year.

          This has to be one of the best, if not the best product for the bathroom. Stunning champagne Bronze that does not scratch easily at all. 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.
          Easy to follow instructions that guides you almost effortlessly step by step.

          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?

          That would depend on where your window is in relation to the the final position of the surround and whether your window is too close to the horizontal recess where the tiles would go.

          That would depend on where your window is in relation to the the final position of the surround and whether your window is too close to the horizontal recess where the tiles would go. I cut my surround a few inches from the top where my 4 inch air vent is situated. I drilled a hole that was big enough for my jig saw blade to go through and laid some polypropylene that I had cut to lay over the top to avoid any scratches to the surface of the surround and using a very fine blade cut through very easily. The most critical part was the accuracy of the cut in respect to my vent, Finally using a piece of fine sand paper to clear any rough edges. In short Rob it does cut easy. Just make sure that before cutting your surround is firm and does not vibrate. Good luck with your project. Read Less

          How much does 1TB give me in terms of recording? 4-5 hrs of actively recording? I don't expect a lot of traffic, just the normal 6-8AM and 5-8PM rush hours.

          I am only able to give you my results regarding the length of a recording. I live on a busy road with my camera's set to view my entrance's. Following a tragic accident between a truck and a pedestrian outside my driveway and on the road, I was able to provide the recorded event to the police even after 5 days later. They sent a technician to retrieve the footage and had no problems. I have this set up on a loop but it hadn't started to record over it yet so I know it recorded for at least the 5 days. How many hours recording time? No idea but as I can go back at least 5 days before it starts to record over, it must be quite considerable more than 5 hours. I have had mine set up now for over 3 years and have had so far a flawless experience Read Less

          Answer: 
          I got an additional basket by inquiring at the Home Depot service desk and they called the company for me. the company then sent me one. This was a couple of years back and I cannot recall how much it was but I do recall that the shipping cost more than the basket. So the short answer is: Yes you can buy additional baskets. Just inquire at one of the Home Depot stores.

          Does Delta sell an arm so the shower head comes out further and faces down? We like the shower head but it is facing out of the glass door, soaking the floor.
