          This charming pirate skeleton adds seven-seas charm to your Halloween decor. Standing 5 ft. tall once assembled, this festive, outdoor decoration is dressed in pirate garb and fully-equipped with a captain hat and sword. The battery-operated pirate is sure to impress the trick-or-treaters. The figure’s mouth and LED eyes are activated by a motion sensor.

          Just love Halloween as it has replaced Christmas as my fav holiday. Our theme has been skeletons and each year I like to add a new character to the family and this 5ft pirate that talks is a great addition. It comes packed in a small box and goes together rather easily with metal click lock poles and comes with batteries. Once together the pirate skeleton looks really mean and scary and the costume looks great and has some nice detail. The recorded voice is loud and booming when volume is high and he says several funny lines that are motion activated by way of a round sensor located on the outside of his pirate garb. His mouth moves as he talks and his eye lights up a red although his arms Read More

Once together the pirate skeleton looks really mean and scary and the costume looks great and has some nice detail. The recorded voice is loud and booming when volume is high and he says several funny lines that are motion activated by way of a round sensor located on the outside of his pirate garb. His mouth moves as he talks and his eye lights up a red although his arms and legs do not. You can adjust the loudness of his voice via a small rod that you twist. Overall I like the detail of his outfit and his sword that has a skeleton face. He will look even better if you stuff his arms and legs with paper or even reuse the bubble wrap that it came packaged with and if needed there are holes in the metal base poles for securing to a piece of wood or similar. A great addition to any Halloween decor and sounds and looks darn good...ahoy matey! Read Less
          Pros: Looks Great, great deep voice, costume detail is good, mouth moves and eye lights up
          Cons: may topple over if not secured

          One of the most popular squares in Swanson’s tool lineup, the 6 in. Pocket Combination Square features CNC machined working surfaces for more reliable accuracy, 45-degree marks and 90-degree marks. The impact-resistant acrylic level vial out-performs less durable tube-type vials. This 6 in. workhorse also acts as a depth gauge.

          Great little pocket square for a variety of uses around house and home. It’s made of stainless steel and hardened brass with a hidden twist scribe and also has a level. Numbers and measurements are etched on for longer durability and the twist brass knob for moving the ruler stays in place. It the perfect size for keeping in your toolbox,drawer or hung on a peg board for easy access. Ruler comes out easy to use separately if needed and the unit has a good feel and weight to it. Already used it several times for a few misc. projects and it came in handy.
          Pros: Accurate, Good Size & Weight, has a level, stainless steel, hidden scribe

          Industrial settings create industrial levels of grease on machinery and surfaces. Pros know that the powerful solvents in Industrial Purple Degreaser and Cleaner quickly dissolve grease. This shop grade formula makes quick work of small jobs.

          Accidents,spills and overspray can happen anytime and it’s good to have something to clean up grease and grime. This Zep industrial degreaser really does clean very well on machinery and tools and similar items. I tried it a few times when I had grease and oil spill from a power washer onto a rubber type garage floor and it removed the slick oil and left the floor non slippery. I also was able to remove a few months of grease from my trusted weed wackier that accumulated oil and gunk and left it really nice and clean. You just spray this purple liquid on,let it set for a minute or two and wipe away the mess. I also used this to remove a few grease spots on my driveway with little effort. You Read More

You should not use this on alkaline sensitive surfaces such as aluminums,natural stone,wood or painted items because it may eat through the finish. A great all purpose product that every shop,garage or work area should have. Read Less
          Pros: removes grease and grime, simple to use

          This is a well constructed,modern looking locking door handle that will compliment any decor. It has a nice color bronze finish with a unique square finishing plate that is super easy to install and will change the look of any door. It is a key lock handle for security and has a good weight to it. The installation process was very straightforward and only took approx. 10 minutes to switch out the old one and put in this one. The square rose or wall plate gives a great look that sets it apart from the standard round and adds a sophisticated look for a quick diy project. I also like the shorter screws to attach the inner and outer handles that disappear once they are in place.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, locking handle

          Led lighting has come a long way and this lighting strip is a great example. It gives you a generous 24ft of pretaped light that can be used in so many places. It is dimmable,use indoor or outdoor, can be custom cut to a specific length ,comes with a remote control,and you can choose from a large variety of colors from white to any color in the rainbow. I have purchased items in the Commercial Electric brand before and they offer great style and design at a very friendly price and don’t skimp on quality in my experience.

I keep mine outside in all weather and have not had an issue yet. It’s a great all purpose cart,you won’t be disappointed. Hope this helps.

          Answer: 
          I personally would not use it around the fruit trees since you are consuming the fruit. I only use it on our front yard where our dogs and bare feet don’t generally come in contact with it. I believe it does leech into the soil so to be safe,I would use an eco friendly/‘natural’ fertilizer that is safe for human consumption. Hope this helps.....
