          Three settings, High (extremely Bright) , Strobe (emergencies and blinding) and low(like most normal flashlights) .And you can focus the beam from pinpoint to wide as well, High and low are obvious, Strobe as well as being used for emergency attention is now being used by many Law Enforcement agencies for blinding an assailant, so its also a self defense option, Kept on your nightstand you could easily blind an intruder hopefully forcing or Read More

          The quality is incredible and I think the price is extremely low considering I will never have to buy another flashlight. Comes complete, extremely well packaged and of extreme quality.

          THIS IS A NICE JACKET..... Got this the other day, charged the battery and put it on... This jacket is warm and comfortable. Three heat levels and once I warmed up I had to move to the low setting. It was about 40 degrees out and all I had on was this and a t-shirt and I was plenty warm.
          Its water-repellant so it will be great for snow blowing/shoveling this winter, It has plenty of room to move around in. Also with the reflective strips I can be seen by passing cars and not get hit. I also already have some Milwaukee tools so I have extra batteries, Though I got almost 8 hours of use on the low setting.

          This is a general purpose light duty tarp. Quality on the one I received was good. Grommets were tight. Seams were straight. Covers the woodpile well. Checked it with the hose and couldn't find any leaks . For the price I thought it was a decent tarp and I should get a lot of use out of it
          Pros: High Quality of Material

          Use the Husky Pneumatic 23-Gauge 1 in. Headless Pin Nailer for all your custom applications. Whether it's hobby work, jewelry cases or detailed trim, it's a great tool. The pin leaves a nearly invisible hole and still tackles any dense wood with ease. This pinner takes 23-Gauge pins ranging from 1/2 in. to 1 in. long and operates at 60 - 100 psi. It features a die-cast aluminum construction with quality internal components for durability while remaining lightweight. The soft grip handles to allow comfortable handling without loss of control.

          This nailer is small, compact, lightweight and fits comfortably in your hand. I felt it was quiet and easy to operate, and think the double trigger system is good as other pin nailers I've had don’t have any safety at all.
          I tried using it in both oak and pine. It drove the pins in easily and countersunk them nicely in both woods, Its comfortable to hold in your hand and very lightweight. As you can see from the pics, I hook mine up to a portable air tank. It makes it extremely portable and I can bring it on most jobs and have plenty of air for the day, Though a small compressor would work easily as well.

          The gun loads easily too, Just make sure you install the pins with the arrows pointing down. (pins have direction arrows printed on them) The swivel connector also makes maneuvering easy and can shoot in any direction without the hose tangling up.
          Seems solid and well-made and I think it will be the last pin nailer I ever have to buy Read Less

          This is one tough/heavy duty toolbox. I decided to use it in the back of my truck for stuff I would need for road calls or repairs, I keep my 18volt impact wrench, sockets etc. in it. It feels like it’s as strong as steel, but won’t dent or rust and its 100% waterproof. It’s made to be used as a modular system or as a stand-alone box, you don't have to have the rest of the set to be able to use this storage box as a portable toolbox.
          Currently I am using it as a stand-alone box, though I may be ordering the system in the near future as the system has a hand truck where you can hook on 3 or 4 of these together then put them on wheels and bring in what you need. . I keep it chained and locked Read More

I keep it chained and locked in the back of my truck, so I can slide it out on the tailgate and have easy access to needed tools.
          The box itself is extremely well built and extremely sturdy. It's strong enough for me to sit on or stand on and hold my weight easily. I would recommend this tool box to anyone for indoor or outdoor use and think it’s a good price for a quality product. Read Less

          A gentle electric radiant heat system designed specifically for dry installation under floating wood and laminate floors. A low profile, line voltage system, it features gradual warmth from low wattage resistance heating of ultra-thin, flexible radiant heat film. Installed easily over a subfloor or over an acoustic/insulating underlayment as part of the overall floor assembly, it uses just 12-Watt per square foot to gently raise the temperature of the floor, conforming to the warranty requirements of many floating floors. The system, which sports an impressive 99% efficiency, includes temperature limiting properties so the film does not overheat. Its available in four convenient rollout mat sizes that will accommodate most any layout. Each mat has wires pre-attached for ease of installation.

          Answer: 
          the heater itself does not have a built in GFCI. Your power source that's feeding it, whether your wiring it to an existing circuit or installing a new line should either have a GFCI breaker installed on it or most bathrooms are now required by code to have GFCI receptacles in them and you can safely take power from that if the circuit is not already overloaded, If you don't have GFCI in your bathroom Read More

          Yes they will, the 2 cameras dont draw a lot of amps/volts, there should be more than ample power on a cigarette lighter circuit. You could probably run 5 or 6 of them off the same plugs if you wanted to for some reason.

          not unless you put in a 110 volt ac converter, then you would have to calculate the wattage and see if your system had enough power to run it.
