          This is a ten pack of rope edge cabinet. Well manufactured in smooth rubbed bronze. The screws fit perfectly without any flaws. The construction of die cast zinc makes for a long and durable knob that has a very nice rope edge to them. They are not big knobs and measure only 1-1/8 in diameter and are perfect for smaller sized cabinets/drawers.
          Limited lifetime warranty.

          I can well understand the confusion of some people of having a towel bar and an assist bar on the same unit unless you wish to remove said towel before using the shower and unless it is installed outside of the shower area, then that would defeat its purpose. Or perhaps use the towel and a wash cloth then leave them on the bar.
          But to describe the Decor Assist in some detail. The Venetian Bronze effect is stunning and the installation is comparably straight forward. If you are unsure how to use the anchor on the dry wall watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYt4UigHv0w to see how it is done. The anchor is supplied along with the rest of the hardware.

          As for the connection to the stud or studs, the lag bolts have been specifically made to screw into studs so no problems there. I decided after consulting with the good wife that I am installing this along the wall that is just outside the shower cubical. That way the assist bar will be beneficial to get in and out of the shower and the towel/s are in easy reach and we shall purchase a stand-alone grab bar from Delta

          I just had to smile when I read in the advertainment that this set is for bathroom convenience and is wall mounted. Well yeah well, better than on the floor or ceiling, I guess!
          Joking aside, this 4-piece set is of a superb quality with a shiny zinc die cast finish that is heavy duty. Nothing flimsy with this set.
          Really do like the easy arm lift on the toilet holder that makes changing rolls within a few seconds. However, fitting this set over a dry wall does require better drywall anchors than the ones supplied and for a few pennies, it is worth I buying them, especially for the towel holders.

          What I like about this toilet paper holder. It is heavy at around 4 pounds, giving the appearance of a really sturdy piece of equipment. The advertisement claims it can hold 300 LBs and am assuming that it is screwed to a stud. However, because there are no wall studs, I am using wall plugs that open up inside the wall when screwed in. I found these ample secure for me to use the assist bar and I weigh in the region of 250LBs.

I do like the ability to change the paper without having to screw the side piece off. To me at least I did find that the instructions were somewhat confusing but after reading them a couple of times, it did become clearer.
          So, is it worth the asking price? Yep it is. Excellent quality and includes limited lifetime warranty

          Gray Composite Deck Coating
          Having had to replace a few decking boards up in Vermont because of rot, I have replaced them using composite wood and now I am going to replace the whole deck and in doing so, protection against the harsh elements of the winters is paramount. This is the reason I chose this.
          I have teak boarding as well as some oak composite wood used as fencing. The fencing was particularly faded and was somewhat concerned what this gray would look like on the faded oak composite. But surprise surprise as the finish, once dry looks like new fencing.
          I then tried a covering on the teak composite with the same good results with only a small tinge of gray (see photos).

          The paint itself looks like a gray water upon opening the can despite stirring it vigorously and it does not feel like paint at all when brushing it on the boards. Yet when completely dry after a 24-hour time lapse it shows the water I hosed on them collecting in beads before running off in the horizontal position. Very impressive and adds to the claim of never wet. Very impressive. Going back to the time it takes to dry completely, I did leave a few boards outside in the sun and after 5 hours I did walk across them with no sign of stickiness.

          Answer: 
          I can only state what I did and that worked perfectly, although only a small numbered sign on to a concrete post. I put a thin layer on one side of my numbered wood piece and another layer on the side of the post and then secured it with a hand held vice and left it in situ' for an hour. That was a few weeks back and despite rain and snow it still holds fast. Hope this assists you.
