          LIBERTY has been a leader in quality and affordable kitchen cabinet hardware for many years. This nickel plated bar style pull is one of a whole family of this pull in various lengths from 3 3/4” to 8 13/16” OC mounting lengths. This pull is manufactured from solid steel, although inexplicably, Home Depot wrongly describes it as being made of cast zinc. They are mounted with 2 screws drilled 5 1/16” on center (oc). The pull’s actual dimensions are approximately 6 3/4” long with a projection of 1 3/8” and a rod diameter of 1/2”. The 8-32 x 1” screws are bagged separately and each pull is protected from damage by being bagged individually. Buyers will have to purchase longer screws at Read More

The 8-32 x 1” screws are bagged separately and each pull is protected from damage by being bagged individually. Buyers will have to purchase longer screws at additional cost to mount these pulls on most new drawers since 3/4” drawer fronts are typically mounted to 5/8” drawer boxes on all new cabinets. I think LIBERTY should have included these screws for customer convenience. These are hefty pulls with a quality feel and modern clean look that is right on trend. They are plated with a brushed nickel lifetime warranty finish. They will work equally well with painted and stain cabinets. They can be used as both drawer pulls and door handles. These pulls are made in China. Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish, lube in each mounting hole
          Cons: 1” provided screws too short for modern drawers

          OATEY is a leading manufacturer of PVC fitting, hangers, and a whole variety of products used in the plumbing industry. This 2” PVC hanger, generally referred to as a J-hook, is used to hang 2” PVC drain lines.

It uses 40% less water than traditional "low-flow" showerheads on the market. The patented pressure compensating technology guarantees a powerful and consistent flow rate. Color: Chrome.

          This shower head far exceeds even the stringent federal water conservation regulations requiring shower heads to use no more than 2.5 gpm @ 80 psi and 2.2 gpm @ 60 psi. This NIAGARA EARTH fixed mount shower head consumes a mere 1.25 gpm at both 60 and 80 psi. It achieves this savings a couple ways. First, the steam is non-aerated resulting in a shower stream that feels more forceful than one that is aerated. Secondly, each jet of water is thinner than those of shower heads that consume 2.5 gpm, yet still delivers a pleasant shower experience. This shower head is also adjustable to deliver a regular shower steam or a mildly pulsing stream with a twist of its adjusting ring. Overall, this Read More

This shower head is manufactured in plastic with a chrome finish. It is made in China. Read Less

          PPG, formerly sold under the Pittsburgh Paint label, has been making high quality coating for decades and this ZERO VOC acrylic primer is no exception. There is a growing trend among paint manufacturers to market a combination primer/paint product. I think the average homeowner must love it. However, I am a professional contractor and have not, and probably never will, use such a product especially for new unpainted drywall. After throughly vacuuming the walls to remove compounding dust, we then wipe down the surfaces with dampened cloths to remove any remaining residue. No paint or primer will securely stick to dusty surfaces. My next step is to apply a primer coat. When I saw this PPG ZERO Read More
          PPG, formerly sold under the Pittsburgh Paint label, has been making high quality coating for decades and this ZERO VOC acrylic primer is no exception. There is a growing trend among paint manufacturers to market a combination primer/paint product. I think the average homeowner must love it. However, I am a professional contractor and have not, and probably never will, use such a product especially for new unpainted drywall. After throughly vacuuming the walls to remove compounding dust, we then wipe down the surfaces with dampened cloths to remove any remaining residue. No paint or primer will securely stick to dusty surfaces. My next step is to apply a primer coat. When I saw this PPG ZERO VOC primer I wanted to give it a try and boy I was pleasantly pleased with its performance. It went on smoothly and evenly and covered very well. It not only seals the raw surfaces but also provides a suitable surface to apply the finish coat. An added benefit is the Zero VOCs. VOCs or volatile organic compounds are proported to be bad for environment and are largely responsible for the strong odor associated with wet paint. While I would not say this PPG primer is odorless, it certainly has much less of a paint smell than other primers I have used from the major manufacturers. If this primer ultimately performs as well my tried and true primers, I will begin using this as my standard primer especially where odors must be kept to a minimum. Read Less

          This Arm sleeve protector can reduce the harm by sharp materials such as dagger, triangular Scraper, glass, Stone, etc. It's very durable, super slash/cut/static proof, soft to wear and washable. It can be widely used for protecting your hands when you do Glassing working, metal processing, mining, food cutting and other works. We also suggest you buy the anti-cut gloves on our store to work with it, which will provide better protection for you. Size: large. Color: blue. Gender: unisex. Age Group: adult.

          The Kerdi-Line is a low profile linear floor drain. It is specifically designed for bonded waterproofing assemblies. This drain can be installed in the center of the shower or adjacent to walls.
           

          Is it advisable to use your linear drain assembly IN PLACE of a curb in a shower? Any chance of leakage onto bath floor

          35 x 55 +/- with 55 +/- drain. Cannot go against back wall, must go in place of curb. Bathroom is on 2nd floor. We are concerned about water getting past the drain and leaking on ceiling below. We have built 100s of curbed showers with 100 % success.

          SharkBite ProLock fittings are a versatile and innovative full-flow plumbing system utilizing push lock fitting technology and engineered specifically for use with SharkBite PE-RT and PEX pipe. The SharkBite 1 in. Push-to-Connect 90-Degree Elbow intuitive design makes for one of the simplest and most dependable fittings on the market. No tools are required to make a connection. They use a collet with stainless steel teeth that grips the pipe when fully inserted, and an EPDM O-Ring to provide a permanent, leak-proof seal. The Twist-to-lock technology ensures maximum security. When twisted into place with indicator arrows aligned, the locking cap locks the pipe in place and creates an audible click. Removing a SharkBite fitting is just as easy with no tools needed; simply twist the cap turn counterclockwise to unlock then depress collet against the fitting to remove the pipe. ProLock fittings are suitable for hot and cold potable water and hydronic heating applications. They have been specifically designed for the Professional Plumber. Code approved for behind-the-wall installations. 25-year SharkBite System warranty when used with SharkBite PE-RT & PEX pipe. Color: Black.

          The Ideal Wing-Nut Wire Connector provides an easy, secure grip when connecting a wide range of wires. The specially designed contoured wings make for extra torque and quick work on any electrical job. The wide range, live-action spring is flexible enough to handle small combinations with ease but then expands to accept large combinations when you need it. It can also be reused on same size or larger combinations for quick and easy circuit changes and additions.
