          I used several of these underneath my cabin retreat up neat the Canadian border. The 3/8 copper piping had sagged over the last few years and these are ideal for securing the piping both off the floor and prevents sagging as it makes its way to the solar powered water heater. I also used them to secure PVC piping that supplies the toilet and shower. The clamps are sturdy and the supplied screws are of a good quality. They make for an easier access to a tight crawlspace. No more sagging pipework. Excellent quality.

          The sizes are as described. Unusual color/pattern and will more than likely be favored by someone with a different taste, like this textured stone finish for example. I am impressed with the way it has been constructed using poly-resin, rather than the usual plastic and the way the screw holes match up perfectly in this wall switch plate with the one gang switch itself. I changed the old plastic plate for this one in the bathroom. The wife loves it and who am I to disagree. When she asked me if I loved it too. My answer? Yes dear.

          I had no problem whatsoever in slotting these boards together. Yes okay, they will slide out without the molding attached unless you are screwing then down, but not just with walking on them. When I was kneeling down on them having fitted about a dozen and about to slot in another board, I slid my legs down across the fitted boards and of course the last one I had just put in slipped out and it took all of 30 seconds to make sure that all were again secured enough until the molding was secured using finish nails.

Length Laminate Quarter Round Molding obtained from my Home depot store for lass that 10 bucks each length which fitted perfectly to this flooring as well as blending in beautifully.
          I did not use any laminate floor sealer as was advised by the rep at Home depot nor any kind of top surface sealant
          Each of the 9 boards in each case was in pristine condition showing no flaws in the manufacturing or the shipping.
          Very easy to snap together I used this laminate in my teenage sons bedroom floor, 12 X 12 which took half a day. Just to make sure that all drinks are banned from his room… as these boards are allergic to being wet ,well yeah like that’ll work.

          Used some of these to tidy up cables that hang from the PC with some others to secure my solar light wires. The only real difference from these to some other ties that have metal at the joint, is that rust will not be a problem. The nylon ties are as tough as specified as it took quite a bit of some deliberate force to snap them but the 18LB strength is not of a concern with these 4-inch ones as I would only use them for example to secure wires and small cables. Easy as expected to thread through and secure and to snip off.

          This color-shot formula has a propellant derived from sugar cane instead of petroleum and that has to be good for our environment…right!
          I chose three of varieties that it states, i.e. metal, plastic and wood. As expected, the pine wood took a few coats before it started to show a consistent color on its’ surface after allowing each coat to dry its allotted 10 minutes of drying exposure before giving another coat. The other two surfaces, I ran the spray over twice without a pause to get good consistency and left them outside in a warm breeze for about 15 minutes. The results on all three were very good with the opaque result I wanted. No drips either from the can while spraying the acrylic.

          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?
