          The Legrand Wiremold 700 series raceway is ideal for surface mounting small amounts of electrical wiring or communication cables. Surface metal raceway allows you to add fixtures and outlets without disturbing the drywall, plaster or insulation in your home. It is also ideal for adding wire when you can't go into the wall, such as on concrete foundations or brick walls. Combine with other 700 series connectors, fittings and channel to ensure you have the right customization for every project.

          Rarely, but there are those times when the only solution to an electrical install, is to use a raceway or surface conduit. In this case a wall sconce was needed and a switch located in a typical position to operate that light. The home is old and that room can not accommodate a ceiling light. The sconce was the only alternative.
          This is a great solution and I've used this in other applications before. I did a ceiling fan in stall several years ago, also in a room the previously had no ceiling light. And there was no attic to bring in wiring. It's working to this day and looks great.

          We like to keep an area rug in front of the kitchen sink. It not only helps keep things neat but aids in the comfort of having to stand there for long periods. We hand wash our dishes. But one also tends to spend some time there while cooking.
          Our last rug began having issues of curling, a tripping hazard at best. So I started shopping for a new rug when I found these at Home Depot. I shopped them on-line which may not have been the right thing to do.
          I picked this rug as it appeared to match some of our surrounding decor. I'm not sure it fits in but My wife will tell me when she gets back in town.

          However, I very much like the quality of this rug. It's larger than the old one which is a plus because it extends in front of the stove. It' feels very nice under foot, with the firmness of a heavy berber rug.
          It's very well made and so long as my wife approves, it will remain. But maybe next time I'll shop at the store. Read Less

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The Home Decorators, Archdale 16 inch (3 bulb) fixture is really quite beautiful. It really provided an attractive finish to the newly decorated bedroom we installed it in. It looks great when lit and when not lit.
          However, if I was choosing again I would probably make a different choice.
          This was one of the hardest fixtures I've ever installed and I've install hundreds. I've installed chandeliers that were easier.
          Out of the box, the fixture is essentially a metal frame work and needs to have 4 glass panels installed. While it may be easier to install the glass panels on a work bench, they really add some weight to the finished product which may hinder installing the entire fixture Read More

          Out of the box, the fixture is essentially a metal frame work and needs to have 4 glass panels installed. While it may be easier to install the glass panels on a work bench, they really add some weight to the finished product which may hinder installing the entire fixture to the ceiling.
          Welded to the metal frame work are 8 flanges or ears (2 holes each) that hold the 4 glass panels which each have 4 holes that align to those ears and then fastened with hardware (called finials). I had to look up finial. The parts list states there are 16 finials and 2 cylinder nuts (cylinder nuts attach the fixture to the ceiling plate). But all 18 are identical. I had a problem with one cylinder nut that was not drilled and threaded as deeply as the other and thus hampered installing the fixture to the ceiling and required improvisation.
          Installing the glass panels was complicated because the ears or flanges, did not line up well with the holes in the glass panels. Some elbow grease was required to get them all to line up. Some moderate bending was necessary. The finials and screws that secure the glass, are both threaded and attach to a stud that passes through the ears and glass plates before being secured on the opposite side. I found this very tedious since I was concerned about chipping or cracking the glass or even dropping the plates. Knowing how much stud is threaded into each nut is somewhat important but impossible to know. The process felt like trying to do 4 things simultaneously. Finally, the instructions are not very good since the illustrations only vaguely resemble the product.
          In the end, it was worth the effort since it really is quite beautiful once installed and even moreso when lit. Read Less

          High visibility safety vest is a must for anyone who finds themselves along side a highway particularly after dark or before sun-up.
          ANSI/ISEA approved #107-15, it is high visibility yellow with silver reflective stripping front and back.
          I ordered small/medium, and at 200 pounds, the vest easily fits over my regular clothes Be sure to order appropriately for sizes as needed to fit over coats and heavier clothing.
          It has draw strings at the hips to cinch it tighter around the waist (if necessary) helping to keep it in place and reduce drafting. And it closes in front with a quality zipper.

          With 10 pockets total, there's a pocket inside, 2 breast high pockets, an ID window pocket for your name plate and a pocket for up to 5 pens/pencils or a mini flashlight.
          This is an absolute must for professionals who often find themselves working in the dark and/or foggy conditions. Wrecker drivers and other professionals who are often at risk doing roadside repairs will find this vest perfect as it's light weight and easy to put on. But it also doesn't affect comfort when worn for long periods.
          Well priced for a quality product from a reputable company, order them by the case for your fleet service workers. Read Less

          It's not often I can say perfect. But this was a perfect pick.
          This is a well designed fixture, constructed from early style (galvanized) plumbing pipe which is seldom used for plumbing anymore. It's construction is fantastic and the thought put into it's design was well placed.
          It uses false crystal glass diff users that enhance the light given. We're using daylight LED bulbs which provide great light for our antique bath area which uses pine wall panels that can leave you in the dark. But with this fixture, enhances the entire room.

What I mean is cracks that might run along the attachment where it slides onto the tube. If it has a crack, won't fit tight to the blowers main tube.
          The other thing to check is for proper installation. This tube has a wide cut out on one side that needs to align on center to the 3 ribs embossed on the main tube. Those ribs should be completely centered within that cut out. This is very important because on the opposite side are smaller ribs that fit into indentations on the inside of the extension tube. The smaller ribs basically lock the extension onto the main tube.
          If the extension is cracked you should be able to obtain a replacement for the cracked extension. But it may need to be ordered. Read Less

          This is essentially an impossible question to answer though I would believe it would definitely go on sale some time in the future.
          Typically a product sale is a joint decision between the manufacturer and a specific distributor. Factors that can affect the decision to put an item on sale might include popularity, production and inventory. Another is if an item is seasonal which this is. So let's say a store chain has a lot of a specific seasonal item in stock and the season it's typically used in is coming to a close. It might go on sale.
          However, we are coming into the heart of this products useful season. With that in mind, if a sale is in it's future, would be more likely to occur as we near spring. This allows stores to clear inventories that otherwise would need to be placed in storage for the next season.
          Also, the manufacturer could be considering a model change or upgrade and decide to have a sale to clear old stock before introducing the latest model.
          As you can see, to try and determine when something might go on sale, has many considerations. But as a potential customer, what I might do is, first to keep a close eye on the product. Another would be to check my stores inventory (how many do they have in stock?). And in the case of this product, are we experiencing average snow fall? In my area, snow is a little scarce this year. Snow thrower sales are down. Perhaps (if this is the case in your area and your store has an abundance of stock) might be willing to accept a different amount than the suggested retail price. It never hurts to ask. Read Less
