          This is a nice unit. They call it “Heavy Duty”, and it certainly is. I hate flimsy items. The 7” length is about right for most applications. The metal eyelet on top can be a handy feature to help keep things organized and out of the way. I also use some of these to wrap rope and store in my pick-up. Nice way to keep things much neater. You won’t be disappointed with this product.
          Pros: Durable, Nice Design

          Its not nice to label people. But it can be really nice to label your stuff. These straps feature a write-on label for easy identification. Plus, with a stainless steel buckle, you can use these indoors or out.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          I’ve had a few products from Wrap-it, but this one is somewhat of a disappointment.
          1. The hook and loop is fairly weak with this product (not near as strong as some of the other Wrap-it products).
          2. Although the 5” dimension is the length of the actual hook and loop material (over-all length is 5 7/8”) it ended up being a little too short for most applications. You will want about 1” engagement (for both the hook and loop material), so you only have about 3” active length (basically big enough to wrap around your finger)
          3. The write on label has no negative issues, but I would think in most cases it would be pretty obvious what you have wrapped up.

          4. The metal clip on top is a nice feature, and it’s very well secured.
          5. Wrap-it makes a 7” heavy-duty unit, which is a night and day difference in it’s usefulness. I highly recommend you upgrade to that one.

          Cirrus-X rollers feature a refined polyamide yarn that's soft, resilient and easy to load. This high-capacity European fabric offers fast and complete coverage. Cirrus is great for back rolling, base coats and finish coats. The soft fabric is also very durable and able to weather semi-smooth to extra- rough surface applications.

          I’ve used the Wooster brand rollers before, and liked them. We have a stucco house, so the longer nap is a requirement, although I never used the ¾” nap before. I honestly doubted the advertisement of the nap being ¾”, as it looked like about half of that in the bag. However, I measured the yarn after taking it out of the bag and fluffing up the yarn, and it indeed is ¾” long. This roller definitely holds a lot of paint.

          The Squids Can/Bottle Holder and Trap makes it easy to carry and secure your water bottle, spray bottle, aerosol can or other canisters of similar sizes to prevent dropped objects while working at-heights. There is a zinc plated D-ring on the backside that can be used to attach a tool lanyard to complete your tethering system. To keep your hands free, there's a stainless-steel belt clip on the side to easily attach to a tool belt or fall protection harnesses. The can and bottle holder is made of abrasion-resistant neoprene that stretches to fit 16.9 oz. (0.5 l) containers including most standard plastic water bottles or even a can of WD40. The adjustable webbing strap can accommodate a variety of bottles and cans and features a buckle closure system to safely secure them into the holder. Constructed with heavy-gauge nylon stitching for extra reinforcement, the bottle holster is made to take on use and abuse. The open top design makes drinking water a breeze in any situation, whether at-heights or on the ground. Use it as a can or bottle koozie while your out on the boat, a spray can holder when your in the garage or water bottle sleeve while training for your next race. Whatever it is, weve got you covered. Color: Black.

          We live in the Phoenix area, so having water handy while working outside is standard practice. However, this is the first time I’ve seen such a bottle holder. They offer a couple carrying options. One is a sturdy D ring which would accept a tethering system. I haven’t used the tethering system for anything for safety reasons. The unit also has a heavy-duty clip for either hooking on your belt (or pants if you don’t wear a belt), which is my preferred way. It also has the option to loop it inside your belt, but this would be very awkward.

The only part I don’t like is the sewed-on model label, as it appears this soon tear off, leaving unsightly stitching. It would have been much nicer if this was printed on (incorporate with the larger printed label), or just leave it off. Read Less

          I’ve used this brand of LED bulbs before, and liked them. I didn’t realize that this series of bulbs require extra hardware (such as Alexia), which I don’t have. I have three kids who are all pretty tech savvy, (one being the IS manager for a major US corporation), and none of them use these Smart Hubs either. I’m giving this product a high rating based on the positive experience I’ve had with other lights from this manufacturer.

          Answer: 
          I don't have Samsung equipment, but I suspect it has blue-tooth capability. If it does, then you should have no problem pairing up to this lock. You should be able to go into settings, and see if there is a Blue-tooth App. on your notebook.
           
          Type NM-B (non-metallic-sheathed cable) may be used for both exposed and concealed work in normally dry locations at temperatures not to exceed 90°C (with ampacity limited to that for 60°C conductors) as specified in the NEC 1. NM-B cable is primarily used in residential wiring as branch circuits for outlets, switches and other loads. NM-B cable may be run in air voids of masonry block or tile walls where such walls are not subject to excessive moisture or dampness. Voltage rating for NM-B cable is 600-Volt.

          Answer: 
          If your saw pulls 15 amp (which I expect is correct), then you will want a 20 amp circuit, which requires this I2 gauge wire. I had a table saw this size and used the 20 amp circuit, and would still occasionally trip the circuit.
