          Not much to say, other than it worked. I noticed some units had different connections, so pay attention of what you are buying. This unit's hose was a few inches shorter than the one that came with the grill, but still worked.

          The RT310 is an electrical outlet tester that tests the wiring condition at an electrical outlet and inspects GFCI and AFCI devices. It is designed for use with North American 120-Volt electrical outlets. This tester delivers clear visual indication of the wiring condition at the electrical outlet.

          I have several Klein tools, and they are all top notch. The only issue I had with this one was the difficulty on opening the package. In the past, I’ve been able to mimic a test for most of these features, using a two-prong tester. However, I don’t know how to test for Arc Fault without this tool. Also, the two-prong tester doesn’t work well with tamper proof receptacles.
          Total tests include: correct wiring, open ground, open neutral, open hot, hot/ground reversed, hot/neutral reversed, CFCI and AFCI. Anyway, a very nice tool.

          This is actually a tough product to review. I've used this brand the last couple years, and our lemon and grapefruit have done well. Don't know how well they would have done without it. I've been told to normally fertilize the trees on Labor Day and Memorial Day. However, I have an orange tree that is 3 years old, and hasn't developed any blooms. My neighbor suggested I fertilize that tree more often, thus the recent purchase.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          For my hands (and I have fairly big hands), the fingers on the gloves were a little long, but the fit around the fingers was tighter than what I prefer. This made it difficult to put on and off. To remove, it was impossible to pull the glove off by pulling the fingers.
          I use rubber gloves when applying stain to wood. I’ve had some disposable gloves dissolve with oil base stains. I rubbed some mineral spirits on the glove, but could see no reaction, so I expect they will hold up for this application.

          I was surprised how heavy the cast side members are. Certainly robust. The unit is designed to blend in with faucet design that has square corners and bright chrome. In our application, the vanity is in a different room, so it wasn’t a concern.
          The brackets stick out from the wall 6 ½”. The cross bars can be trimmed if the 24” width is too wide. There is a template with the instruction sheet for mounting the retaining brackets. If you need a shorter installation, subtract the actual width of the mounting bracket dimension from the distance noted on the template, and this is the amount you trim the cross bars.

          The only area I thought was pretty awkward was how close the retaining set screws are to the wall. Made it kind of difficult to screw it in, while holding everything in place.

          Make a grand statement this season with our 7.5 ft. Pre-Lit LED Swiss Mountain Spruce Artificial Christmas Tree. This stunningly realistic masterpiece boasts 3,404 PVC and PE branch tips, ready to showcase all of your ornaments and holiday decor. It is pre-strung with 600 Twinkly App Controlled RGB LED lights. The power of Twinkly technology lies behind its innovative Computer Vision feature. The app is able to detect the exact position of every single LED through your smartphone camera. After you are done decorating, simply snap a photo in the app to map your environment and create breathtaking effects with perfection and ease. Choose from a huge gallery of eye-catching effects and light up your Christmas with unique animations. Each effect can be easily customized by changing the speed, colors and other key parameters of the animation. You can easily create your own custom effects as well. Choose the color you like and draw whatever your imagination desires. Made with an easy setup, this tree can be assembled in less than 10 minutes. To make the tree look as full as possible, you will need to shape, or fluff, its branches. Fluffing a typical 7.5 ft. tree may take a couple hours the first time, but the results are well worth the time and effort.

          Answer: 
          Should be no problem, but it seems strange why you use poly-stain. I use oil based wiping stain, and coat with this. Certain stains are much easier to get professional results, and Old Masters is one of the best.

          I did this several years ago with success. However, I remember I sprayed it on, and started with several light coats, just in case the lacquer would react with the old surface. One issue, which I think you will have regardless of the top coat is if the item you are coating was ever treated with a silicone polish. If it had, you will end up getting "fish eyes" in the finish.

One issue, which I think you will have regardless of the top coat is if the item you are coating was ever treated with a silicone polish. If it had, you will end up getting "fish eyes" in the finish. You cannot clean the surface off good enough to avoid this. I found there is a special additive you can get that stops fish eye. Read Less

          Answer: 
          Unfortunately, I have my tree in storage now. I can't answer your question directly, but when I was playing around with the tree, I found a function called "snowfall" on the controller, which we really liked. It starts with white lights at the top of the tree, and then cascading on down. Looks real cute. Then blacks out, and starts over again.
