          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.

          As you can see from the pictures the items come well packed. I was using mine for an upgrade replacing a ceiling light so I also needed Home Depot ceiling fan box, made to fit between the ceiling joists Model # CMB150-OBStore SKU #398992 (pic below) Install is easy, ALWAYS REMEMBER TO SHUT OFF BREAKER. 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
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Eco-Friendly, Fast / Speed, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Stylish, Unique, Well Made, Quiet

          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
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Easy to Install, High Quality, Looks Great, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          I cannot get the caulk to stay between the walls and the tub. It seems that there is too much space for the caulk to go.

          The caulk will stay for a few months and then it will start to come out again. It is very frustrating. I cannot use a small bead of caulk or it will not gap the distance between the tub and walls.

          Answer: 
          Try cleaning out all the old caulk you can get to first, then clean with a thinner.. After that have you tried applying the caulk in a couple installations. put in one bead of caulk all around, when fully dry, go back and install another bead on top of the last one. Building it up till its filled the gap.

          Answer: 
          Direct to Stud Installation means the the tub and panels are connected directly to the wall framing studs. Usually after installing a tub, You install duro-rock or cement board to attatch the tiles to. With this system you can attatch the tub and enclosure directly to the framing studs using construction adhesive in the middle, and screws around the edges, (I still used greenboard for additional support) Read More

With this system you can attatch the tub and enclosure directly to the framing studs using construction adhesive in the middle, and screws around the edges, (I still used greenboard for additional support) The most important thing is make sure your 3 walls are plumb and true, this will ease your installation many times over. Take your measurements directly from the new tub and enclosure pieces, not from the directions, and use the longest level you have available. also throw in some additional horizontal blocking so you have extra area to use contact cement on.

          This is a full replacement tub. It can not be placed over another tub... What you are looking for is called a tub liner. If you contact Home Depot they have special contractors that install Tub Liners. It is not a do it yourself project. Call the Depot,,,, They will be happy to help you

          You have to check through the Specifications to be sure...But usually that does mean only the tool, no battery or case. The only thing they will sometimes come with an adjustment wrench if needed.
