          We got this light fixture specifically for the driftwood finish to match the gray oak flooring in our kitchen, and it was a perfect match. As you can see, we added a box made from the same laminate as the floor, to drop the fixture down some due to our high ceilings and it worked and matched great. Installation was a little tricky because the screws the attach to light to the base are barely long enough to start the nuts, but otherwise we had no issues.
          Pros: Looks Great, Nice Design, Unique

          The Complete Cable Concealer Management Kit in Black from Stalwart is the perfect cord organizer. It contains everything you need to organize those messy cables. Each kit contains 6 cable cover raceways 1-1/8 in. x 11/16 in. x 25 in. each. That is 150 in. of cable concealment.

          This item worked great for us to conceal the tangle of wires behind our DVD, surround sound system, satellite receiver and TV. It comes with about twelve feet of channel, adhesive strips for each section of channel, and enough T’s and elbows for a variety of different designs. The adhesive appears to adhere to the wall well so far. The covers open easily if there is every a need to add additional wires or cables. I only gave this an “average” rating due to the T’s and elbows. While the channels and the adhesive strips are good, the other fittings are somewhat flimsy and don’t attach well to the channels.

          Single willow fence panels cover approximately 96 sq. ft. of flat area. Individuals willow pole diameters vary between 1/4 in. x 1/2 in. while tapering moderately over their height of 6 ft. Excellent for tradeshow backdrops, convention events, kids rooms, themed parties, basements and most any tropical themed oriented design. Even though this item is not completely see through, the item can be used to hide your unsightly pool equipment, air condition or heating units and trash receptacles. Easily rolled and unrolled for storing or transporting.

          This fence is an economical and quick way to add privacy to your outdoor or indoor space. We used it to add privacy to our firepit/ BBQ/patio/ hot tub area and block the view of a busy side street. I attached it to an existing woven wire fence using UV resistant cable ties and installation was simple other than this being pretty heavy. Two people are a necessity to handle and install this, as it is somewhat heavy and pretty floppy until attached to something.

          This is a convenient way to get all the pieces needed to plumb you gas dryer to your gas source. Everything needed, including pipe sealant and leak testing fluid is included. I do recommend adding a valve approved for gas on the supply line this kit will be hooked to allow turning off the gas to your dryer without shutting down any other gas appliances. Plus the added benefit of this kit is the automatic shut off in the event of the line getting broken, preventing a potential catastrophic explosion!

          Answer: 
          The LED is lit by a small water powered generator in the spray head. I replaced ours once for making a noise, discovered that hard water was leaving deposits in the generator vanes.
          When the spray head starts to make noise, I unscrew the head and soak it in a glass of white vinegar for a couple hours, and it works great for a month or so.

          Answer: 
          There is a weight that is attached to the spout hose. If it has come loose the hose will not retract. Also make sure the hose is not tangled in any of the plumbing under the sink.

          Answer: 
          The measurement is taken from the centerline of the wheel, if there are walls the measurement will be short by twice the radius of the wheel, due to the wheel hitting the wall at the beginning and end of the measurement.
