          The Pop-Up Floor Box Receptacle offers a modern, practical way to attractively conceal electrical wiring devices in homes and businesses, while still providing accessibility to power when needed. Featuring a sleek low profile and stylish metal cover that recesses neatly into the floor when not in use, it takes only the press of a button to make the receptacle available. The Pop-Up Floor Box Receptacle may be used to satisfy the appropriate code requirements for residential and commercial applications; it also offers protection from ingress of water spray when closed and meets or exceeds scrub water test for safety.

          I mounted the Pop-Up Floor Box Receptacle in the top of my desk. While it is extremely handy for floor mounting where you can't get into the walls or if you need a receptacle in the middle of the floor. Installation is easy enough for any DIYer, They are prewired and only require attachment of the hot and neutral wire. They are much easier to use than the old ones that had the screw on brass cover.
          The best part about this item is that no one can steal my phone charger anymore. I can come home, Pop up the cover and plug my phone in and charge it. I actually found a cord to charge my phone about an inch long that will close in the cover of my new receptacle and I don't have to worry about Read More

          This is a standard item now in my line of stock items we keep on hand at the shop. They are well made with a beautiful finish and look like they'll stand up to years of abuse. Comes complete with different size screws so you can use them on cabinets or drawer fronts. And sold at a very reasonable price, So far I've used them in a kitchen, to dress up the cabinets after repainting them.On a dresser, in a bathroom, These are great for DIY refinishing projects.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, 2 size screws

          I don't know if they changed it, But mine had no cling plastic cover, Just wrapped in a protective plastic bag (see pic. below) so that wasn't a problem. Well made and stamped from 302 stainless steel will certainly last forever. Can be cleaned with windex or mild soap and water or even use a metal polish if you want it extra shiny. Sometimes I use these and just drill a hole in the center if I want a nice mount for a toggle switch. Even comes with longer screws to make your life easier.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Easy Replacement, Nice Design, Stylish, Very Bright

          If your a whittler,woodcarver,hobbyist, etc, this thumb guard will come in handy to you.. Helps for pushing knife or chisel along without making your thumb hurt like crazy, also keeps your thumb from slipping off blade and protects your thumb from being cut as well. Fits snugly and tightly to thumb and can be used on any finger it will fit on. A very inexpensive price for a lot of extra help and protection.
