          The Marshalltown Blu-Tip 12 in. x 24 in. Grout Bag is ideal for holding and dispensing grout or mortar. The blue molded-in tip can be cut to a desired opening for easy dispensing.

          Thought i would save time and energy using this on a large tile floor project, but ended up ditching it after about 5 minutes. It doesn't work well AT ALL with grout, as sanded grout is much too thick. You have to cut the tip really high to make it come out at all, and then you end up having way too large of a stream.
          The bag is tough to squeeze, and it gets tiring quite quickly. In addition, if you fill it more than half way full, it's heavy.
          Not recommended. Skip this and grout the old fashioned way.

          QEP QEP 4 in. x 9 in. Economy Rubber Grout Float
          The QEP 4 in. Economy Grout Float features a closed-cell, foam rubber pad that resists sticking to most grouts. The contoured, high-impact plastic handle and aluminum backing plate offer strength and stability.

          Not a bad float, just not a great one either. It's really only good for one tile project. After some moderate use, the corners bend up making your grouting job unnecessarily messy.

          I'm turning my garage into a parlor, and using this to tile over the concrete floor. It's a big space, so the large tiles look nice in there. However, be warned! These tiles are ridiculously heavy! I can barely, just barely lift a case of these things. (It's only 5 tiles!) But that also means that these tiles are extremely durable, and will last for years to come. That's a GOOD thing! Not easy to install, and not recommended for beginners. Ensure to back-butter for good adhesion.

          The QEP 4 in. Square-Notch Trowel is ideal for small, 1-time installation jobs of tiles 8 in. x 8 in. or smaller. The durable, cold-rolled steel blade and high-impact black plastic handle make the trowel easy to use.

          For this price? It's awesome! No fancy trowels needed for mortar installation underneath tile! Just rinse off after use and it's good to go.

          I am using this for attaching 20x20 porcelain tiles to a concrete floor. WOW does this stuff stick! Occasionally, i didn't put enough mortar down, and the tile was a bit low. Prying it up is insanely difficult because of the surface tension of this product. That's a GOOD thing! Mixing it is smooth as silk. Highly recommended.

          The HOMZ forward facing over-the-door ironing board is the ultimate in convenience. The steel mesh top is designed for improved steam flow measuring at 49 in. x 14.25 in., slightly smaller than the typical floor standing ironing board, but large enough for most garments. The included metal hooks allow quick installation on a standard 1-3/8 in. door (no tools required). The board easily glides into position and locks into place. Compared to other over-the-door ironing boards which fold up for storage exposing the backside of the board, this one slides back into position showing the cover. Folds away to just a 2 in. depth so it won't interfere with the door operation. Color: White.

          Answer: 
          The top clamps have holes in them, presumably for screws. I'd imagine that you could break the hooks in half, before they go over the top of the door, and just screw in the holes on the board side.
