          After years of using countertop style toothbrush holders that always get "funky" from spit, toothpaste residue and water spots, I decided it was time to find a toothbrush holder that freed up some of my counter space and wouln't leave me with an extra mess to clean up daily. This is am inexpensive option. And it only took a minute to install. It can hold up to 4 toothbrushes or razors, plus a "spit/rinse" cup (which I use to keep my toothpaste off the counter. I definitely recommend this product. Just install the base plate, place the holder onto it, then tighten the set screw...

          This is a unique "gimmick" intended to make it "dummy-proof" but the press and mark feature does make installation a few steps easier. I had this grab bar installed in minutes once I removed the shrink wrap, located my studs and choose my location. I took the protective caps off, centered the grab bar and pressed inward. Once pulled away, I had all the locations marked and ready to be pre-drilled. The bar is good quality, durable and stylish. My big turn off was that the screws and instructions were hidden in the lower flaps of the box and it wasn't until I had to dig thru my garbage, that I realized I had thrown out the screws and instruction.

          Some of my neighbors have yard signs that tell solicitors that they are not welcome. I was looking for something more discreet that would tell unwanted visitors that they are not appreciated, so this sign is the perfect complement to my Mid-Century Modern home. It is made of a durable hard plastic. Comes with two adhesive tack strips to secure it to a lot of surfaces (probably not for brick or concrete, but that's hat landscape adhesive is for) I think it looks great and was so easy to install.

          The 4 ft. 3-Channel Floor Cord Protector in White is the perfect solution to cover your cables, cords or wires. This 3-channel floor cord protector is great inside and outside to protect against tripping hazards and workplace accidents. Flexible PVC material is designed to mimic rubber and can be cut for a custom fit and unrolls easily. Each channel can be easily cut open with a knife or scissors before inserting cables. Three channels are large enough for most power cords, ethernet, CAT5 and CAT6 cables.

          The high quality of this particular cord cover makes it more suitable for high traffic office areas than residential home offices. It is heavy duty. It has been sitting in the sun for almost a week and still has not totally unfurled. This cord protector must be "split" after purchase. Most of the cheaper ones are already pre-split so that you can just bend and insert cords into the track. This one requires a razor knife to open the channels. You have places for three different cables/extension cords, and the tracks are so roomy you can probably get two cords in each of the three tracks. I just don't know why anyone would choose this in white as it gets so dirty so fast, with people and Read More

          Love this item. Looks great. Now I don't have to worry about the spring in a normal toilet paper holder, just slip a roll over the stob end and it will stay. and it rolls very easily. I am going to put one of these in every bathroom I have. The finish is very easy to clean and it only took a few minutes to install. I recommend these to everyone. This is a great idea. My only complaint is that the instructions were not great as they had been copied badly and were too light to read

          this collections looks great, but isn't it annoying that the toilet paper sits (drags) against the wall? Will the ring swing out to stay horizontal so that doesn't happen?

          Answer: 
          The bar that holds the paper does swing out to accommodate various size rolls of paper, and the paper does occasionally touch the wall, but I have never found it annoying.

          Answer: 
          the chain is approx 10 feet in length and the electrical cord id much longer. If you buy more silver chain, you could lengthen the chain by another 6 feet, I am guessing, or you could add more electrical wire (if you trust your skills) and customize the length to any of your choosing.
