          I have bought a lot of solar products over the past 20 years. I expect that most will last at least a season, or two, before needing new batteries. These units are far superior to any I have ever owned before. The metal heads are really nice. The weight of each unit makes them feel well built. The only downside I would say is the stem that holds the head up and the stake that goes in the ground. Those two pieces are plastic and I am suspect that they will not endure as long as the heads might. You have to make sure and follow all the instructions to get these things set up.

I expected, since it was already late afternoon, that they would not be fully charged until a full day of sun. But I was wrong. When I went outside late, around 8 pm, they were on and shining bright. They are definitely brighter than the other solar lights in my yard. I am impressed with the quality and the lumens Read Less

          Everybody has that area of damaged sheetrock at home that you may need to repair. This product works. It comes with three sheets of fiber embedded tape, two small and one large. It has an adhesive side that has a good amount of sticky to hold while you plaster over. I had a large hole left by an electrician, that needed to be repaired so I attached all three sheets (large hole) and then was able to put a couple of skim coats of spackle. After it dries, I'll be able to sand or add more plaster. I am really glad I got this product. I recommend it to anyone.
          Pros: Easy Instructions, Easy to Apply, Easy to Use, Even Application, Good Coverage, Good Protection, Looks Great, Very Adhesive

          I use a lot of gaffers tape and duct tape in my home repair and art installations/decorations. This is a nice wide tape with a stretchy feel. It does tend to stretch when you are pulling it, so you have to let it relax some before attaching, if not, it tends to snap or leave bubbles. It is a little difficult to tear, so that's why I only rated it as good. It has a less lustrous sheen than most duct tapes, but it is a nice change. I found two different uses for my projects. I attached it to a raised board on an outside covered porch deck, so that the sheen would be noticeable and so would remind me and guests to step up a little (or just notice the rise.

          I bought one of these 3 years ago, and when it started to wear down, I decided to replace it with this one. The fact that they still only hold a charge for 15 minutes, and have made no improvements to the product is why I have only given it a average rating.

          As far as the ingredients inside the can being able to actually provide protection from and elimination of germs and bacteria and viruses, everything is there; alcohol and dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride. it has the same as the leading brands. The only issue I found with this product is the actual scent. I received the "linen scent": and the "citrus scent" and they both didn't seem nearly as aromatic as the name brands, which I have used for years. So, considering that the name brand can sometimes be almost $3 more per can, you have to decide, is the perfume of the top brand worth the price, since they are doing the same thing?

          Answer: 
          Sure. That would be a great idea. Or just it next to the diaper pail, or in the bottom, beneath the bag. All would be great uses for this product.

          can I use it on a concrete overlay

          August 4, 2019
          I had a mason put a concrete overlay on my concrete walkway and had it stamped. Can I put the granite grip directly on top of the overlay. Had planned to stain but am now considering other options. thanks.

          Answer: 
          I see no reason why this product will not adhere to your concrete overlay. But keep in mind, this product probably has guidelines about painting it on raw concrete Each gallon covers much less area than you will expect because of the quality of the surface. And new concrete will suck it up!

          Sounds like a good idea. These are rated for "damp" locations, so they might work under the eave/porch of a house, but will probably not last as long in extreme weather conditions
