          These are a great product for use in installing PEX tubing for plumbing (and other products).
          I also purchased them in 3/4.
          Since they are full circle they are perfect for installing tubing to floor joists (between joists) and the ribbing inside the circle of the clamp, does a good job of isolating the tubing which helps prevent noise transmission into the structure they're attached to.
          My only dislike is the lack of hardware (screws or nails). Because of this, it can be difficult to make installation as you need to hold the tubing in place and try to set nails in the provided holes.

If you opt to use small screws, isn't much easier in many areas particularly if your working in tight quarters. Some fasteners or staples, have nails provided, fit tightly into the holes of the plastic. This frees up a hand to hold the tubing while you drive the nail. It also prevents whacking a finger trying to hold small nails.

          I found these to be an excellent addition for installing PEX tubing in certain applications.
          Relatively easy to work with, they are very convenient for installing tubing between floor joists as they keep the tubing taught yet provide a good amount of isolation which helps prevent noise transmission through the structure of which the tubing is to be installed.
          My only dislike is that, unlike fasteners for other products, these have no hardware (nails). The holes are rather small which is fine for accepting small nails (or screws).

This would save time and fingers as well as make installation a 2 hand job instead of 3.

          This 20 in. High Velocity Floor Fan with Shroud is an excellent choice for use in the home, garages and basements. It is easy to move around with carry-handle. It can cool large areas with ease because it features 3 high velocity fan speeds and 3 aluminum blades for maximum air movement.

          If you're looking for a high volume fan, look no further.
          We had one from maybe 25 years ago, had served us quite well. It was always a bit noisy but when you needed circulation it was great. I shut off one night last week as we had a cool evening. The next morning I went to turn it on again but it wouldn't start. Normally I'd fix something like that but the rear bearing was seized up and I have too many projects already.
          So off to Home Depot for a new one.
          We found a few we liked including one that can work off a rechargeable tool battery which would be convenient in a power outage. However, I run a back generator so we decided on this fan.

          I'm not the least disappointed. It's quieter than our old fan but moves about the same amount of air (appr. 2300 CFM) is compact and very easy to assemble (takes less than 2 minutes). It's very sturdy, has a handle (top back) which makes it easy to move, weighs less than 15 pounds and has a built on cord wrap for convenient storage. It also cost far less than the other fan we viewed though I may still purchase that one also as I could use it when I'm doing certain jobs.
          GREAT VALUE HERE.

          I wanted a lightweight compact blower, something my wife could use. She can't use my plug in model efficiently. Plus that plug in is great for cleaning leaves in the fall but isn't convenient for grass clippings or blowing off the deck.
          This unit is ideal for both and can use any of my many 18 volt Ryobi batteries. The ONE+ Ryobi, battery-tool line makes things so easy for me to switch between jobs and tools and this convenience allows my wife to participate in many of our projects where conventional tools would limit her ability.
          We have many trees that constantly deposit material on our deck. So now the Mrs. can just grab this unit, pop in a battery and clear it in a few minutes.

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 1/2 in. Push-to-Connect Tee intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market.  No tools are required to make a connection.  They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security.  When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe.

          Another great product from "Shark Bite" plumbing products.
          These are the same "push to connect" fittings as Shark Bites brass fittings but in a durable plastic. They have a new feature that they make a click sound when the pipe is inserted, you give the end piece a twist. If the pipe is seated properly it makes a click.
          These will fit all standard 1/2 inch water pipe (copper, PEX and PVC).
          They are fast and reliable, use wherever you would use Shark Bite brass fittings at a much cheaper price without giving up quality.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Lots of Features, Nice Design, Sturdy, audible click lock

          Does the gripper mechanism work on a cam/wedge action? Kind of like the harder you pull down on a mounted tool the tighter it grips the part.

          Answer: 
          That is exactly correct Randy. It's very convenient because it allows for a wide variety of handle sizes. So it will hold most brooms, shovels etc. It holds virtually all of my gardening tools and spaces them nicely allowing shovels to be well organized yet easy to take down when I need them.
           
          Enjoy the convenience of an in-ground sprinkler system without the hassle of connecting to an in-ground water source. The patented Blu-Lock system uses a revolutionary stainless steel retaining ring that grips the flexible pipe from the outside permitting a quick, easy-to-slide-on fitting which installs 80% faster and is 25% stronger than traditional barb fittings, providing you a stronger system in less install time. Install 2 zones with the 12 pop-up gear drive sprinkler heads, which are easy to adjust with the water on or off, providing head-to-head coverage to ensure against dry spots. The digital timer offers oversized features for ease of use, a manual override option to allow watering flexibility while keeping programming intact, and heavy-duty weatherproof construction. Attach the dual outlet digital timer to your outside faucet, to control 2 sprinkler zones, and enjoy a fully programmed sprinkler system in minutes for a well-maintained yard all season long.
           

          My 2nd zone would need to be 160 to 180 ft till I start using it. Will this work at this length?

          I currently have a system running of water hoses, and more than two sprinklers exhausts the pressure. Is this line thinner so there is more pressure?

          July 12, 2019
          Answer: 
          The minimum recommended pressure per zone (6 heads) is 35 PSI. The system will operate acceptably from 35 to 65 PSI and at 50 or above is acceptable for 2 zones of 6 heads each. It will operate below 35 PSI (per zone) but will not cover as much area.

          Why are the fan blades hitting up against one side mount ( left side mount is bulging inward ) Is this unit damaged?
          July 9, 2019
          Answer: 
          This is difficult to answer. Did the fan fall or was it dropped? If it was jarred somehow, could have knocked the motor off center. If this is the case, it can be re-centered by loosening the motor mount screws and sliding the motor back to center and then re-tighten the screws. Make sure it's unplugged first.

          If the fan was dropped or fell over, it's possible the shroud (metal grates) became bent slightly. If you know a handy person, have them check the metal covers. Typically they can be adjusted (bent) back to their original position.
          If you feel it came new from the box in this condition, return it.
