          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)

          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 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. Screwed to a stud and the other side using an anchor and lifted my 220LB weight using the assist bar so my feet were off the ground Looks superb, and with the pivoting bar a quick easy way to change the tissue, this is an excellent buy and when I wrote

          Made of cast iron, this switch less unit with the potential of a 11 Amp currant flow at 110V, this water pump sucked the water up from 30 feet down my well and then up an incline of approx.’ 40 feet high. It then travels 135 feet to up the incline to the storage tank that is another 18 feet off the ground with ease. The tank bladder holds 120 gallons and was filled in about 20 minutes. The wiring was straight forward as I was simply replacing an old 2-year pump that had been fried following a lightning strike.
          Am very satisfied at the way it pumps water all the way to my storage tank, and considering the length of its travel along with the height of the tank, this well pump is more than adequate.

          The pressure gauge displayed 42psi during the first initial use and subsequent use dropped to 35psi (the 135-foot hose already being primed after the first use.
          Very impressive cast iron construction that is corrosion Resistant. The assembly which included the wiring took only 20 minutes and was pumping water up to the storage bladder a few minutes later. Very impressed with the power and speed in which it filled the tank.
          Has a dual voltage of 115/230V and is self-priming and a thermal Overload Protection
          It comes with a 12-month warranty and has a 90-day return policy.
          Excellent instructions supplied.

          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?

          Thanks for your question regarding the maximum height that this machine will successfully cut. Although I have used mine after a vacation and found that the grass on my lawn had grown to a height of 6 inches, it did work fine, albeit slow going on the highest setting and then finished by lowering the wheels and going over it again.

          Thanks for your question regarding the maximum height that this machine will successfully cut. Although I have used mine after a vacation and found that the grass on my lawn had grown to a height of 6 inches, it did work fine, albeit slow going on the highest setting and then finished by lowering the wheels and going over it again. At all other times I cut the lawn when the height of the grass is around the 3 inch mark and find that this level makes for a perfect finish. But what is the maximum height? This electric grass cutter does have some exceptional power but has been designed for small lawns and not the large rough terrain that my back yard has. Hope this assists you. Read Less

          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.
