          A perfect match for all things satin nickel, this hook is strong and secure. Good directions specify 3/32 pilot holes, making the installation very fast. I marked the locations for the pilot holes, drilled the two holes, switched to the Phillips head bit, installed the hook with the two matching screws, all in about five minutes. The finish is nice and smooth. This hook looks great and works well.
          Pros: Great Instructions, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Sturdy, smooth finish

          This garden kneeler keeps knees clean, dry, and comfortable. The padding is just right for my knees, and keeping my pants clean and dry saves time and effort. Setup is easy. First, open it from the closed position. Second, install the four plastic protectors on the metal bar that will be at ground level. To do this, turn each plastic protector so that the slot is facing the thinner area in the middle of the bar that will be at ground level, slide the slot through that thinner area, and then slide the protector toward the end of the bar, where it will protect the metal (see photo). Third, hang the tool bags from the bars that will be facing up. All of this takes less than five minutes. This Read More

          When paint must be removed, this is a fast solution. After a painting project, I needed to remove paint that was applied to metal accidentally, in small areas. I sprayed some of this product onto a piece of plastic, and then used cotton swabs to apply the product and remove the paint. The product dissolved the paint very quickly, and with the swipe of a paper towel the paint was gone. To remove paint from a large area, I think that this would be the fastest method available.

          Excellent mower, with easy to charge battery, simple setup, and smooth, quiet operation. This machine does not require very much strength to operate. A product of superior design and materials, it has the look and feel of a mower from the future. We participate in our electric company's Renewable Energy Certificate program, which makes this battery-powered mower a much greener option than our gas-powered mower. We are using it as a mulching mower, for the benefit of our lawn, and the bag being smaller than the one on our other mower will be no problem. The lighter weight of this machine is also easier on our lawn.
          Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, great design, easy to follow instructions

          These serious loppers make quick work of cutting small limbs. The 1-3/4" diameter max is correct. When a 2" cut was attempted, it was unsuccessful. It is heavier than a regular lopper, as one might expect. This fills the gap between regular loppers and a chainsaw. For a secondary limbing-up project, removing small diameter regrowth of lower tree branches, to keep head space clear, and allow more light to reach ground level, these loppers ease the strain of the job.
          Pros: Functionality, Strong

          Has anyone used this successsfully on 100% polyester drapery panels? The online description herein says, "It's powerful enough to penetrate deep into heavy fabrics and gentle enough for your most delicate fabrics." However, on page 7 of the Steamfast Travel Fabric Steamer Owner's Guide, it says, "CAUTION: When steaming any material for the first time, it is recommended that you test on a small inconspicuous area before proceeding. Do not use on synthetic fabrics such as 100% nylon or polyester or other steam sensitive materials." I want to use this to remove wrinkles from drapery panels of fairly heavy weight, smooth, 100% polyester, and this discrepancy in description leads me to think that I might regret even a small test. I would really like to use for this purpose, but would not want to ruin a drapery panel.
