          I used these to build and reinforce a shed door. The heads are thinner and wider than deck screws so they drew the support boards in nice and tight and they were cleaner to cover with a wood filler. The star heads were clean and never stripped.

          This chrome single handle bathroom faucet is heavy weight and stylish. The directions were good and the flex lines made it easy and quick to install. The chrome finish is nice and works well in our bathroom. The drain unit was very substantial and heavy duty, much better than lower cost models. We felt that this faucet set was a very good value and are very happy with it.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Modern, Stylish, easy to follow instructions, also included a detailed maintenance section

          The Francisco pull from Liberty effortlessly blends styles to create a look that is casual with a hint of industrial charm. This pull is the perfect way to give your room an impactful update at an affordable price. Subtle tumbling on the Warm Chestnut finish gives a modern rustic feel to light and medium wood tones.

          This set of 10 handles are nice for the price. They are well made and an interesting chestnut finish. We switched out our brushed nickel pulls for these handles in our kitchen and it instantly refreshed the kitchen look,. They are sturdy and well made. They were easy to install and all fit the 3" center to center layout. They add a little rustic to our kitchen.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          I thought this was a good idea to be able to pull out the stopper to clean the out hair stuck in it. It was easy to install but I didn't like the way it sat in the drain, I could never keep it level and I felt over time the ridges in the plastic would wear out making the closure useless.

          The box was easy to install-it took a little tweaking to change out the face plate. I liked the ability to use box either vertical or horizontal. It is much easy to use than the old metal plate with a spring hinge and it is more weather proof.

          I watched the installation video and I'm not sure if this product needs to be glued together on the edges or just click and locked. It is being installed in a bedroom. There were no samples in the store, I want to be sure there is a tight fit.

          I am building a sloping retaining wall that is 4' at the high point to a foot at the low end and it will be 21' long-do I need weep holes to keep the sand and water from moving the wall.

          Answer: 
          The drill has 2 speeds and 18 torque settings but the only way to control the speed is to slowly apply pressure to the trigger. For the impact driver you can only control the speed by depressing the trigger.

          Answer: 
          Yes- there is a hex nut on the canopy. Once you loosen that you can pull the cable through to the length you need. Just tighten the nut and cut the cable leaving enough cord to rewire the fixture.

          If your ceiling box it flush to the vaulted ceiling I don't think the light will work. Unlike a ceiling fan where you can buy an adapter so the fan can hang straight down.
