          Okay so let's get start off with what I disliked about the sectional set. The clips that it came with to secure the sectional together were lose and wobbly. They moved from the front to the back and didn't really seem secure even though they are pretty thick plastic. Secondly, the arm rest are a little to low for my liking. I would like it better if they were a tad bit taller. If they were taller then it would create sort of a barrier so that the cushions wouldn't have a way to fall off the chair edges. The set sits low but is at the perfect level when the cushions are applied. This is a great lounge set. The dark brown color blends in with just about everything. Very sturdy with what I Read More

Very sturdy with what I believe is an aluminum frame. It can support quite a bit of weight. The table is a nice addition. You can put a centerpiece there or you can kick your feet up and relax. You can put food there as well. Now all I need is an umbrella and a cold one on a nice spring evening. Read Less

          Cons: clips don't seem secure, arm rest could be taller

          These comfortably soft, bonded leather bar stools are a perfect transitional piece from your kitchen to your living room. Bronze colored studs are featured along the edges of the seat and the black metal kickplate gives this stool a contemporary look. Comfortable and solidly built, they are useful in the dining room or any other room as additional seating.

Once completely assembled the stools wobble. But when you sit on them there is no wobble. I thought my floor was uneven but it's definitely the stools. Last but not least the middle support did not screw in properly. Easy fix. I just drilled another hole and everything worked. Now for the good parts.

          This is a great leaf blower and it pushes out a lot of air. Cleans the yard really well. I would say that this is for small to medium yards with outlets nearby. However, knowing that this leaf blower is electric, the cord does tend to get in the way especially when it gets tangled. As far as performance goes it performed better than expected. This leaf blower is also very compact and can be broken down and stored just about anywhere.
          Pros: Accurate, All In One, Durable, Easy to Store, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Great Engine, Light Weight, Powerful, Sturdy

          I'm a little torn with this twine. Shiney white, it cuts well and is extremely strong. However, because of the way it is composed, it does not hold a simple knot very well. In fact, it forces itself out of the knot. You'd have to tie a few knots before you get a good hold. It's very well made and can support a large amount of weight before it gives out.
          Pros: Durable, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish
          Cons: difficult to tie, requires a few knots

          Sheet metal screws are an essential fastener for working with thinner metal. Sometimes used with fiberglass, wood, or plastic. These coarse threaded screws are available with a self tapping or self drilling point. Sheet metal screws come in a variety of head types, finishes, and drive styles to match the needs of your project.

          A scew that does not strip easily/at all is my kind of screw. This 100 pack of screws is super strong and very well made. I want another pack already. They are easy to use with a Phillip's head screwdriver or a drill. I love that they are zinc plated with a shiney finish. Once screwed down they hold their place. Very sturdy and steel isn't warped or bent.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish

          Answer: 
          You have to push the handle through with the plastic washer attached. Once the handle is through the plate, you need to slide the d-ring over the lip of the inserted handle. It took me a few times reading the directions.

          The Kalamera 18-Bottle built-in Wine Cooler is a great way to start your own home wine collection. It is a single zone cooler, so you can set the temperature that is perfect for the wines you love. It's the perfect size for a small collection, holding 18 bottles, niched in their own spaces on sliding beechwood racks. You can see them displayed through the dark glass window set in sleek stainless-steel door. It can be installed under a counter, and only takes 12" of width, so it fits in most homes, and it works if you want to display it in other rooms as a freestanding wine refrigerator. The low-noise/low-vibration design keeps the cooler quiet, and your wine chilled and tasting just as it's meant to, with no disruption of wine sediments to muddy the taste. This cooler is a cost-effective way to have an elegant start to your own wine collection. Enjoy! Color: BLACK.
