          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

          These sheet metal screws, or tapping screws, are highly versatile and are used to attach metal, wood, fiberglass, and plastic. The sharp threads draw material together and ensure a secure hold. Made from hardened steel, the threads create their own mating thread in pre-drilled holes. Sheet metal screws are fully threaded with a sharp point.

          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

          I am unbelievably impressed with this knife set. The knives and wooden block come in a nice box that almost makes you want to keep it. Knives are sharp as well as scissors. All of the knives have a great handles and grips so that you can hold onto them even when your hands are a little wet. Awesome addition to the kitchen. Fits well with the rest of our new appliances and cookware. Also comes with a large variety of knives.
          Pros: Convenient, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Takes Less Space

          My only dislike about this set is that the faucet is split between the all metal shaft and head and a plastic seating point. I'm not sure if the part was supposed to be plastic and attached to the metal faucet or if it was supposed to be metal. I honestly don't know but I don't like that aspect. Everything else was stellar. Easy install and best of all no leaks. I love the quick attach hoses. Also the instructions are amazing. They really helped.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Modern, Strong Water Pressure, Stylish
          Cons: plastic faucet base

          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!

          This is such a great wine cooler. It's slim enough to fit under a counter top of you want to install there it. I like the touch features and the blue LED light. It makes everything look super cool. You can set the temperature with a touch of a button. I like the size because it's not to big where it would be in the way. You can pretty much store it anywhere there is a plug. Super nice design. Holds 18 bottles comfortably, but could probably hold more if the bottles are tiny. It's also not to heavy so you can lift it or slide it across smooth services without damaging anything with ease. Was packaged very nicely with 2 layers of boxes.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, High Quality, Looks Great, Lots of Features, 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.
