          The Woods medium duty extension cord is high quality (just like the other extension cords made by Woods). This is a16 gauge, grounded, single outlet cord as opposed to the thin indoor cords you may have. And although it is labeled as an "Office Cord" it can obviously be used pretty much for anything (although it's not rated for outdoor use). I got it because I needed a good sturdy extension cord that was 25 feet long!!

          There is one very important word to keep in mind before purchasing this nightlight: "continuously"!! As in, there are no controls or switches on this light so when you plug it in it immediately and continuously cycles through the various colors until you unplug it. No on/off switch; and no ability to select a single color. The continuous cycling might not be so bad IF all of the colors had the same (or even similar) light intensities, but that is definitely not the case... some colors are very bright and some are very dim, which can get very annoying, especially in a completely dark room. I will admit that it was kind of fun watching it cycle through the colors the first couple of times, but Read More

          This is a well made toilet handle, and also very attractive!! The lever itself is heavy, sturdy metal with an elegant design and beautiful dark bronze finish. Yes, the inner workings are plastic, but it's not the least bit flimsy so it should hold up nicely. The installation was quick and easy except for tightening the screw that holds it together... you'll want to have a stubby flat-head screwdriver on hand 'cause there's not a lot of room to use a regular sized screwdriver (at least in my tank). The inside arm swivels and locks into place so I would think this handle will work as a replacement on pretty much any brand toilet that has a lever handle no matter whether it's on the left or Read More

          This cord protector is super heavy duty, which in itself has both pluses and minuses. As the instructions state, you will need to allow a couple of days to let it flatten out (it comes rolled up). Or, if you want to speed up the flattening process, just put it outside on a flat surface in the sun for a few hours and you should be good to go.
          As I said, it's very heavy-duty so if you need to cut it down to a smaller length, you'll probably want to use a saw... it's thick!! And speaking of saws... please be aware that whichever of the three available channels you plan to use, they do not come already split open on the bottom.

It's pretty easy to do as long you have a box cutter on hand and take your time. Oh, and the two side channels are very small (too small for an electrical cord); however, the center channel is quite large.
          Lastly, although it lays flat and has a good amount of weight to it, it will still slide so I recommend buying a few double-sided tape strips to secure it to the floor, especially if it's located in a high traffic area. Read Less

          This is a nice, attractive dual head shower fixture. The oil rubbed bronze finish matches my other ORB fixtures perfectly. The fixed head and the handheld head give you 6 different flow options to choose from on each head.

          Another nice feature is the easy to use 3-way water diverter. Just turn the diverter knob on the left side of the main unit to select between: the fixed shower head only; the handheld shower head only; both head together; or, pause to temporarily turn everything off (yes, that's actually 4 ways, but they call it 3-way).

          Now, I wish I could be as complimentary about the installation, but I can't. First, the instructions refer to a part that's not actually included (the Lock Nut that supposed to be installed in step one). Later on, the instructions say that you may not need the lock nut anyway, but it's still confusing. To be honest, I really don't see how it could be attached to the main inlet threads anyway, so I can only assume the instructions are incorrect.
          The instructions are also incorrect (at least for me) about ONLY hand tightening the connections (stated in BOLD/CAP letters)... hummm, well if you want it to leak. Not only did I end up having to use pliers to get a good seal, I had to use plumber's tape on the threads (which comes in the box, but the instructions state that it's only to be used if needed). I my case, it was definitely needed... on EVERY connection!! And yes, I tried adding additional washers as stated in the instructions, but it didn't change anything.
          Anyway, now that it's up and not leaking, it really is a very nice and versatile fixture. However, I'm not certain about longevity, especially since the main diverter unit is plastic. Time will tell I guess!! Read Less

          I looked at the installation instructions, and it states that were are 2 short tubes and 6 long tubes for suspending the light, but it doesn't specify how long they are. How long are the short and long tubes? Trying to figure out the available height options of the assembled light to be sure it will work with my ceiling height.

          Answer: 
          You pop open the two white tabs in the back that cover the bolts (they're hinged in the back so pull up the part closest to the seat), then just lift up and the seat comes right off. Well, to be honest, it does take a bit of a "pull and twist" to get it to release. Just do the same thing in reverse to put it back on.
