          The Panasonic 2.2 cu. ft. 1250-Watt Genius Sensor microwave oven with Inverter Technology is perfect for the countertop or built-in installation. Unlike other microwave ovens, Inverter technology delivers a seamless stream of cooking power, even at lower settings, for precision cooking that preserves the flavor and texture of your favorite foods. With Inverter, you can poach, braise and even steam more delicate foods, all with the speed and convenience of a microwave. With the touch of our Genius Sensor cooking button, this microwave takes guesswork out of creating a great meal by automatically setting power levels and adjusting cooking or defrosting time. The sensor measures the amount of steam produced during cooking and signals the microprocessor to calculate the remaining cooking time at the appropriate power level. Plus with Turbo Defrost, you can thaw foods faster than ever.

          This microwave is easy to set up and install. Setting the clock was easy and the control panel is intuitive. It is probably the fastest microwave I have ever used to warm up food or defrost food. It has a quick-30 button which is convenient to press rather than keying in the time you want. For more refined microwaving, there are differing power levels which are handy for reheating, liquids and defrosting. It also has a popcorn button which worked very well (no burnt popcorn). The inverter/turbo defrost worked very well. You simply put in the weight of the food and it calculates the time.

The inverter/turbo defrost worked very well. You simply put in the weight of the food and it calculates the time. It also has a sensor reheat and sensor cook functions that sense when the food is “done”. This can be adjusted to your preference though. This function is a bit more complicated than just putting your own time in as it comes with a food chart so the microwave knows what food you are heating. Overall, this microwave seems to do a very good job and while come of the extra features are a bit complicated to use and get used to, I like the extra functionality that it offers. Read Less

          These turnbuckles are used to create tension in cables, ropes and chains by turning the body of the buckle to take up slack. Used with rope, twine, cables and like items in tensioning systems. Suitable for marine, outdoor or general applications.

          I used these to put a sun shade under tension. They are easy to use but are way overkill for my project. That said, they are large enough I was able to turn them by hand although I could have used a screwdriver if there was a lot more tension. They are stainless and should last against the weather for a very long time.

          I used these to attach a sun shade in my back patio area. They are easy to install. I used a couple of 7/16” bolts to anchor them to the eave. They easily hold the weight of the sun shade, even under tension. They are coated and should resist the weather for a long time.

          Anchor Shackle can be used for industrial, agricultural and marine applications. The quick releasing pin saves set-up time on the job site. The screw pin design allows easy assembly and disassembly. Anchor shackles are designed for multi-dimensional pulling applications which can be used to attach on hoists, clamps, slings and other lifting equipment.

          I used these to attach a sun shade to anchor points. They are easy to figure out how to use and will hold all the weight easily. They can be a little “sticky” the first time they are unscrewed. I had to use a pair of pliers to break them loose the first time. After that, they worked great. They are galvanized and should last a long time against the weather.

          Lag Screws are hex head screws with thick shafts and coarse threads. They are designed to securely join wood pieces together in heavy load applications. Commonly used for decks, framing, retaining walls, and wooden playground equipment. Lag Screws can also be used in masonry if combined with a lag shield.

          I needed these to attach an anchor to wood. These were just the right size to go in a 2”x4” without poking through. I did have to pre-drill though. They’re also zinc plated and should last a long time.

          Attract and kill the ants you see and the ones you don’t with Terro Liquid Ant Baits. The liquid, which contains borax, is specifically designed to allow worker ants to consume the product, survive long enough to carry the liquid back to the nest. Ants consume the liquid ant bait and return to the nest where they pass it around to the rest of the colony. The active ingredient in the bait slowly interferes with the ants’ digestive systems, ultimately killing them. Since this is a bait product, you will initially see more ants as they are attracted to the liquid but don’t worry, this is a good thing. After the bait is consumed, insect populations will begin to decline. Complete control may take up to two weeks. For your convenience, Terro Liquid Ant Baits are easy to use and feature a new and improved snap-off tab design no scissors needed. To open the bait, hold the station vertically and twist the new and improved tab. Then place indoors on a flat surface near ant trails and other signs of ant activity. The more bait placements, the better. Be sure to leave the ant baits undisturbed while the ants are actively feeding on it.

          Does this evaporate?
          I typically put these under the kitchen and bathroom sinks but also recently in windows out far enough to still close the windows. If the baits are empty does this mean the bugs ate it or did it just evaporate? I would think that evaporation under sinks would be minimal. It's pretty gooey so not much like a water texture.

          Answer: 
          I have not noticed these baits evaporating. With the drop type, it can soak into paper but I have not really noticed a heavy amount of evaporation. That said, if the bugs are eating it, I have always seen a few of them dead in the liquid bait. However, if the weather is warm enough, I'm sure there will be some evaporation. I hope this helps.

          Yes, I've installed these on a metal door before. There are little "tabs" on the door side of the hardware that is designed to grip the door and with a metal door, it does not grip as well as a wood door. One option is to put a small sheet of foam or rubber between the two. Without that, you may have to tighten the hardware a lot to get it to stay in place. I hope this helps!
