          I was a bit surprised at the lightweight fabric the M12 Milwaukee Heated Hoodie was crafted from but after wearing it the battery heating system makes up for it and is much better than wearing a bulky thick sweatshirt. It’s comfortable, light and has some nice touches, like the pocket trim. It is made from a more durable fabric rather than simple cotton piping that would break down more quickly after repeated pocket usage. Inside the right pocket is a smaller pocket which I believe is for a spare battery but I use it to keep my cell phone from flopping around. Not sure why they did not provide one in the battery pocket for the battery itself. When it lays horizontal it is more comfortable Read More

Inside the right pocket is a smaller pocket which I believe is for a spare battery but I use it to keep my cell phone from flopping around. Not sure why they did not provide one in the battery pocket for the battery itself. When it lays horizontal it is more comfortable while standing and working but when I sit it digs into my back so I need to stand it up lengthwise and push it to the far left corner. An inner pocket for this upright position would be handy when sitting for several hours. I really like the lighted three heat level on/off switch.The jacket runs true to size. The wrist bands are a little tight but I expect them to stretch over time.

          Nylon Bond Blade Protection and a five-point reinforced frame promote this heavy-duty magnetic tape measurer's resistance to contamination wear and increased protection when dropped. To increase productivity on the jobsite, its double-sided printing with blue print scale makes reading and transferring of measurements a breeze. The innovative Finger Stop protects your finger when the blade retracts.

          I have always owned Stanley tape measures and after the last one busted after only a year, I decided to try a different brand - significantly more expensive (2.5x). This tape is substantially heavier than the Stanley tape due to its rugged construction. That is a good thing, but being a woman with smaller hands, it might be a little cumbersome on certain projects. The numbers are large and very easy to read which is great since I usually don't have my reading glasses on and/or can't find them when I need them. It also has a magnetic tip and a great finger stop. I haven't had the tape long enough to see it will last but based on the construction and design, I don't think it will have the same Read More

          This door was delivered extremely well packed, so I was a little shocked that there were a few chips on the door (see pictures). Overall, though, the door is fabulous. Due to its size the small chip/nicks are not even noticeable and you can put the "bad" side against the wall. Since the door was going in my family room/kitchen and I have a modern home, I used different hardware to match the style and my stainless steel appliances. However, the hardware that comes with the door is gorgeous and I plan on using it at my vacation house, which is a traditional/farm house style.

          As previously mentioned, this makes new laundry installation a breeze. Easy to install and connect. SharkBite products are fabulous. So why did I give it only 3 out of 5 for Quality and Value. The actual box feels flimsy which shouldn't be an issue once sheet rock is installed, but I could see it getting damage during construction. I put cardboard over ours until it was ready to sheet rock. For such a flimsy product I feel the price is high, but still would recommend the product.
          A word of warning on the knock outs - you are suppose to leave the knock outs in so junk doesn't get into your new plumbing. Well sheet rock and painting were done and we were ready to get our new washer and Read More

Well sheet rock and painting were done and we were ready to get our new washer and dryer and we went to remove the knock outs. Well they would not come out. So my husband hit it a little harder and it popped out right down our new drain. Thankfully we had a shop vac with a thin hose so we were able to get it out. Next time, I would put a piece of tape to prevent this from happening again. Read Less

          As other reviewers pointed out, the bad thing with "one size fits all" is they are going to run large. But maybe because this material is thicker, these gloves fit pretty good on my smaller (woman) hands. The thickness of the gloves also makes them last longer than regular latex. I do a lot of wood work/refinishing and these work great for sanding and steel wool. I would not use them for stripping off finish.
          Pros: Durable

          I installed this in December. I installed brand new Energizer batteries in it when I put it on my door. The unit is now blinking red meaning the batteries are low and need replaced. Is it normal for batteries to last only a short time in this unit?

          Answer: 
          No. My batteries last longer than a year,. I would check to make sure that the batteries are securely seated in the battery compartment. If they are seated properly, you may have gotten old batteries or there may be an issue with the unit and I would contact Kwikset. Kwikset is has a fabulous customer service and warranty which is why I always buy there products.

          Answer: 
          No. However the range does come with a LP Propane conversion kit and instructions on how to convert it. It isn't difficult to do. If you don't want the hassle, when you purchase from Homedepot.com, you get an option to "get it up and running" for about $54, which includes a $34 installation kit - I think a screaming deal!
          Great range - when we sold our house, we bought another one for our new house.
