          The Chamberlain 1 ¼ Equivalent HP Belt Drive Garage Opener is very innovative and extremely quiet. I replaced a 10 year old model with this unit in around 2 - 3 hours. The installation directions were very intuitive and easy to follow. My garage door is 8 feet tall so I was required to purchase and install an extension kit (Model #8808CP-P) in order to increase the travel length. The kit included one longer section of track and a longer belt to replace the original ones.
          Pros:
          • This unit operates extremely quietly
          • The battery backup is a nice feature, as even with a power outage it can be opened and closed

          Pros:
          • This unit operates extremely quietly
          • The battery backup is a nice feature, as even with a power outage it can be opened and closed
          • The wall touch pad displays temperature, time and diagnostics in addition to operating the door and lights (The lights can be configured where they turn on automatically when motion is detected)
          • Programming the travel is extremely easy
          • An additional dead bolt lock adds security when the door when closed
          • With the Wifi capability a smart phone can know the position of the door, open or close it, and receive alerts when the opener is operated from any location (note: the wifi is not available if the opener is operating on battery power)
          Cons:
          • The wifi setup took a couple of attempts in order to set up the communication correctly. The instructions seemed to say to disconnect the phone from the home wifi and connect to the unit’s wifi, which worked easily. But the next step said to connect to a web page, but my phone would never connect with the mobile network and access the page. I finally loaded the MyQ app on my phone first, and was able to get it connected and configured after uplugging the opener to reset the wifi learning a couple of times. Once set up it works well.
          Overall I am impressed with this opener and would definitely recommend it. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Install, Functional, High Quality, wifi capability, extremely quiet, great features, battery backup
          Cons: had a bit of trouble setting up wifi

          Nourish several areas of your yard with this four-zone electric water timer. Featuring four high-flow valves to water four areas, you can easily select four separate start times on each valve. The timer's rain delay function helps you avoid wasting water by pausing the water for up to seven days. The angled-valve design makes it easy to attach this water timer to multiple hoses with no harm to your knuckles. Each zone works like a separate timer, so the tomatoes and squash can be watered every morning while the lawn sprinkler comes on every few days. Size: 8.59 In..

          This Melnor 4 Zone Digital Timer is very easy to set up and use. After initially purchasing a single zone controller to water my flower beds I ordered this 4 zone timer to water my tree rows while out of town. It is extremely versatile due to the ability to screw directly onto a faucet and hook up as many as 4 hoses to it.
          The instructions are very thorough, and step clearly through each configuration. It takes two AA batteries, which are not included. It can be set up to run each of the four zones from daily to once every 7 days, and up to 4 times per day per zone. It also has a manual bypass for each zone that can be selected as desired.

          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Functionality, easy to set up and program, capability of up to 4 zones

          The Nylon Mason Twine is strong, durable and easy to see. The included winder makes it a lot easier to roll up and keep tangle free, as well as compact and easy to stow in the tool box. It also has a slot in the top so that the loose end can be pulled through and secured. I especially like the highly visible color to make it more apparent around a build site.
          I would definitely buy this again!
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          These Solar Outdoor LED Landscape Lights have a great look to them and appear to be well made. They are made from a mix of aluminum and plastic. The smoked lenses are made of glass and adds a nice effect to the area as seen in the pictures. I mounted these on the split rail fence on both sides of my driveway using conduit clamps. Although these don’t put out a lot of light they are more than adequate for what I wanted.
          I would definitely order these again.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Looks Great, Nice Design

          The GS-Designs by Gama Sonic Polaris 178001 is a single head solar lamp post that adds an elegant sophistication for landscapes and gardens. Installation takes minutes and comes with all necessary hardware needed for mounting this unit. Stylish and easy to install, this light is the perfect solar lighting solution for your outdoor space. Standing 83.7 in. tall, the Polaris solar lamp post is constructed of weather-resistant, rustproof rigid resin with a black finish to withstand a variety of different climates, including coastal. This series incorporates our cutting-edge GS solar LED light bulb technology and provides 360° illumination. At dusk, the solar lamp provides a brightness of 130 Lumens in a warm white (2700K) color temperature and includes a High/Low mode switch that extends nightly light duration up to 10 hours of operation on a full charge. No wiring is needed. Just place this solar light in a spot with ample direct sunshine and let the sun do the rest. This fixture is available in both black and white color options.

          The Polaris Solar Lamp looks attractive and has a two position switch to select between low or high setting for the bulb. The light on the high setting probably puts out around the same as a 40 watt incandescent bulb.
          Here are my findings and opinions of this lamp.
          Pro’s:
          - Attractive lamp and post
          - Requires no wiring to operate
          - Gives off a nice light in the yard
          - Comes with everything needed for the light to operate (bulb, batteries, etc)
          - The light is totally corrosion resistant, as it is built from plastic
          - The post is easy to assemble, as the base and the uprights are all threaded so they easily screw together
          - Batteries and solar panels adequately run the light

          - Batteries and solar panels adequately run the light throughout the night when fully charged
          - It runs from dusk to dawn
          Con’s:
          - Light is made primarily from plastic, including the base and post, which allows the lamp to easily sway in the wind (and I live in windy country)
          - The instructions gave some pretty good information, but lacked a parts list to understand what screws were included and where they were to be used
          - Assembly took longer than anticipated, as the screws and nuts needed to attach the top to the glass were made of plastic which easily stripped out. I replaced these with new black metal screws and nuts
          - The 2 position switch is under the top finial which must be removed with the included allen wrench in order to turn off or select the desired brightness level
          I have mixed thoughts on this lamp. It looks attractive, but I would have expected it to be made from metal. I really struggle with the lamp swaying in the wind. I am attaching a video of what it did in just a 10 MPH wind. It can easily move much further than shown in the video, which I would assume would happen in much higher winds.
          I would most likely recommend this to someone wanting an attractive post lamp in a sheltered area where electricity is not easily accessed. Read Less
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish

          Looking to add the perfect finishing touch to windows and doors. The Woodgrain Millwork 11/16 in x 2-1/4 in WM356 Primed Finger Jointed Pine Casing Door Pack includes five 84 inch sides which is enough material to finish both sides of a door. Casing is used around doors and windows to cover the gaps between the frames and walls. Combine the casing with a backband to create a bold, one-of-a-kind-look. Color: White.

          Answer: 
          It would not be my recommendation to use these outdoors for a couple of reasons. Normally one would use an exterior trim more of the dimensions of a 1x4 (3/4" x 3 1/2") or 1x6 (3/4" x 5 1/2") and square cut the edges in order to better seal out the moisture with caulking and paint. The door casing you are asking about is by design made for trimming around interior doors and windows.

The door casing you are asking about is by design made for trimming around interior doors and windows.
          The width of this casing is only 2 1/4" wide and 11/16" thick at its thickest part. It would also have to be cut at a 45 degree angle in order to match the profile. I would think it would be harder to seal out the moisture as well as get a good fit around the siding with this trim. I would personally look at other options. Read Less

          The Milwaukee flashlight uses a holder for the 3 AAA batteries. Two CR-123A batteries are longer that this holder, and are not as big around (see picture). It appears that there is no way to install any other batteries that the AAA in this light.

          Is the entire auger made of plastic? I'm in Minnesota. When it's 15-20 degrees below zero won't the plastic shatter?

          Answer: 
          The auger is made completely of hard plastic. I have not had any experience yet at below zero temperatures.
