          These are well made electrical boxes. They have the made in place wire clamps for non-metallic cable that eliminate the need for separate cable clamps, and are extra deep which is convenient. Being able to remove the side of the box makes it much easier to get the wires bundled neatly, and the will gang, allowing you to have as many outlets and switches as necessary. They can be used in new construction, or with the attached mounting ears in old work.

          The Franklin Brass 32 in. x 16 in. Angled Concealed Screw Grab Bar in Satin Stainless features a smooth surface for a simple clean look. The angled design works great when a grab bar is needed along 2-walls in a shower or tub, or next to the toilet for additional leverage points to get on and off the commode. When installed properly, it will support up to 500 lbs.

          While this grab bar is designed for a bath tub or shower, we used it as an assist to get in and out of our hot tub. Being stainless, the chlorine shouldn’t have any detrimental effects, and it has made getting in and out of the tub much easier and safer. We attached it to wall studs using stainless screws, and the covers over the screw make for a neater and safer installation. After installation I attempted to dislodge the bar using more force than would be experienced during an accidental fall, and the bar held strong.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Sturdy

Molded grip fits your hand like a glove and oversized release lever gives you precise control when releasing the tension of your ratchet. Woodland Camo and black finish completes the look along with 700 lbs. Working Load Limit and 2,100 lbs. Break Strength webbing for great performance.

          These are some above average ratcheting tie down straps. The ratchet mechanism is built sturdy, and has ratchet wheels on both sides of the spool so the stress is spread evenly. There is a thumb piece to release the spool, keeping your fingers out of the mechanism for safety. The strap is 16’ long, plenty of length for securing a sizable load in a pickup bed or small trailer.
          Pros: Nice Design, Sturdy

          I applied this to our camper roof using a long nap roller and the results turned out great. I first went over all the seams and around anything mounted on the roof with a disposable (cheap) 4" paint brush, and after that dried I covered the entire roof. This material is very thick, but if applied too heavily is will run, so be careful around the edges so as not to get any drips. Wear gloves and and a disposable jumpsuit when applying this to protect you hands and clothing, and if it's a bright sunshiny day a pair of sunglasses because this stuff is BRIGHT white and does reflect the sun.

          This is a unique idea that will make choosing the best knob or pull for a cabinet project simple and easy. There are several different groups of styles to choose from, I chose Warm Classics for my project. By being able to see each pull or knob on the actual project I was able to pick the one that suited me best. These are very good quality, solid metal knobs and pulls. The finish is excellent on each one. They do not come with screws, so plan on purchasing screws of the correct length for you doors or drawer fronts.

          Answer: 
          After 15 years the solids may have settled to the bottom of the can. If the can is still sealed, turn the can upside down for a few days, the flip it back over and check to see if the contents are mixed.
