          Paracord is ideal for camping, hiking and other outdoor activities. You can braid a survival bracelet from paracord and unravel it when cordage is needed. It has a great combination of strength and durability for a lightweight rope. Some of the dozens of practical uses for paracord include: making a tarp ridge line, securing equipment to a backpack or a vehicle, making a shelter, replacing shoelaces, making a clothesline, hanging food while camping, marking a trail, and making an emergency tourniquet. Always keep at least 50 ft. of paracord on hand. Color: Grays.

          My wife loves this item, I mounted it in my R/V over the stove and filling pots has never been easier. You can see from the nozzle (pics below) it is large and fills pots fast and easy. It was a little more difficult installing it in an RV because its on a moving wall and the walls aren't as thick as in a house all you need is a 90 degree elbow and pex pipe.I've put these in at homes in the past and its usually pretty easy as any damage you have to create is usually hidden behind the stove only requiring some drywall and joint compound. Its well made has a beautiful finish and should last long time.

Remove old ceiling box, replace with new HD ceiling box.wire, hang and attach fan, It comes with easy to follow directions and the whole job from beginning to end should take no more than 2 hours. it works great and the remote is on mu night table making it easy to control. Level of difficulty for a beginner is 4-6 for a beginner, Well worth the effort and looks great

          A nice well made towel rack They come in 9, 18 or 30 inch sizes and are a good do it your self update/project for your bathroom or kitchen, The only problem with these is you must have a good solid anchor or surface to attach it to. The wall piece works best when solidly secured to the location. Mine came with the screw in anchors which worked well for me in drywall. As long as the spring plate is securely connected to the wall you wont have any problems.Installation is quick and takes less than half an hour

          You could use this product, It would take some extra work... Measure and cut the window hole using a jig saw. Before cutting, put blue tape around where the window will go on the the surround and mark your cut lines on it. Cut from the back if you can to help reduce splintering using a fine blade. Make sure there is sufficient wood around the window frame to attatch the surround to. Then install the Read More

Make sure there is sufficient wood around the window frame to attatch the surround to. Then install the surround, and trim out the window as necessary to cover the edges of the surround. Make sure your windowsill is slanted towards the tub and extends over the surround to allow water to drain back into the tub. You will still have to paint the window trim, but a small price to pay...

          Tile trowels come in many shapes and sizes, generally starting out from a 3/16″ v-notch up to the 1/2″ square notch. Finding the right trowel for the job is quite simple when you know that, generally speaking, the trowel size should match up to the tile size – the smaller the tile, the smaller the trowel; the larger the tile, the larger the trowel.

For your procect I would reccomend a 1/4 V-notch trowel. But before applying the tiles, you MUST prep the area, I would sand down the stair riser till all the poly is gone.Then wipe clean with mineral spirits and wait till dry.
          If there is enough space under the riser, Ideally you could use a 1/4 inch backer board and screw it to the risers, Then tile directly to that. National Building Code specifies that you must have a full 9 inch step. So if you measure the tread and subtract the tile and backer board and have 9 inches you are good to go Read Less
