          With the first sheet, some care has been taken when installing it, especially if on a high wall. Once the backing paper has been pulled away from the wallpaper about a foot from the top and I had positioned it on the wall, I would now let the whole sheet fall away. That way I can see easily if it is in a straight line that follows the spirit level mark. Regardless of other ways people to it, I prefer using the edge of the palm of my hand to wean out any air bubbles using a 45 angle from the top and downwards. Any wrinkles, then stop, pull the paper up to that point. I personally only pull the backing down by using both hands about 2 feet at a time. The second and subsequent sheets I followed Read More

Any wrinkles, then stop, pull the paper up to that point. I personally only pull the backing down by using both hands about 2 feet at a time. The second and subsequent sheets I followed the same procedure with an excellent success rate. The wallpaper is thick enough and does not tear easily. In fact, I never found any issues at all with tearing. The pattern is vibrant and easily sticks to the surface and if required, use both hands either side of the paper to pull it up and again is quite easy. But be aware that if not careful and you allow the wallpaper to fold in on itself, thus sticking to each other, it will take much patience to unravel them. On the one roll, I completed 3 strips 72 inches high. An excellent finish with excellent wallpaper. This product is very versatile in the fact that not only is it a removable wallpaper but is also an ideal covering for other projects I have used different styles for (see photos. The roll I used on my scratched and worn computer desk has been on for some 12 months now as well on some cupboards/cabinets surfaces in the basement/bedroom and still remain in excellent condition with no sign of scratches or wear, despite 3 young kids Read Less

          This is a very beautiful faucet but I was concerned that it was a one handle opera-tion as others I have installed have had issues with leaking. Not so with this one from the Pfister brand Well designed the installation was standard and straight forward.
          The height also caught me by surprise at just over 16 inches along with the hose of 20 inches so make sure when ordering that it will apply to your sink.

          All fittings are of exceptional quality with no issues whatsoever when installing. The only disappointment although only a minor one was that the pause control has to pushed and held for it to work as described. Others I have bought have had a push into operate and push again to stop. The pull-out nozzle at first was a little stiff but after a few times it became much easier. I do like the way it goes back in the neck it clicks assuring you that it is secure.
          Good to excellent flow. Have been using this for a week only and there are no signs of any issues.
          In summing up the brushed gold effect is both stunning and operates perfectly and the deck plate certainly compliments the faucet and are easily cleaned using a damp cloth.
          It has a 90-day returnable.

To remedy this, I very carefully bent the clips down ever so slightly and in doing so, the small pad fell off…but the glass pane was now secure, albeit the tiny rubber pad was lost forever. I can well understand the reasoning of the design but that could have been better, a lot better.

          On describing the install, she told me that the plastic piece that confused me was used for flushing the valve before the installation of the control unit. `Oh` I replied, that makes sense…not`!
          I can only add what she told me and that was that she installs quite a few of the same brand and like the one she had done for me, she never yet had one that had caused any issues. No leaks and a straight forward install

          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?

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.

          Answer: 
          I have looked on their web site but there is no definite sizes other than the 12 inch one. You can always email them at their customer service at LgiOrders@unitedgs.com and ask them direct. Hope this assists you

          I'm sorry but I can only assume that it is a defect and should return it as soon as possible. I have had mine for over a year and it worked perfectly and still does
