          Installed this with other hardwired inter-connected units in order to communicate with wireless unit in laundry room approx. 60 ft. away, where inter-connected wiring was not available. Very easy to install. Works well.

          Kidde i12060 is an AC/DC powered, ionization smoke alarm that operates on a 120-Volt power source with 9V battery backup. This alarm uses ionization sensing technology. Ionization sensing alarms may detect invisible fire particles (associated with flaming fires) sooner than photoelectric alarms. Photoelectric sensing alarms may detect visible particles (associated with smoldering fires) sooner than ionization alarms. The front load battery operation speeds installation and reduces battery replacement time and effort by eliminating the need to remove the alarm from the ceiling. Alarm is packaged with two universal adapters that allow easy installation when replacing other branded smoke alarm.Shop all Kidde Smoke Detectors here.

          Added a Hardwire Wireless Inter-Connectable in hallway and Battery operated Wireless Inter-Connectable in laundry room off of garage where inter-connected hardwire is not available. Everything works well. Batteries will be easy to change.

          Installed just 2 weeks ago. So far, so good. After reading specs on different manufacturers, decided on this one. Good price. Almost no plastic parts! Install was relatively easy, even for an old guy with the use of only one good arm. After using a different maker's faucet with ceramic seats for nearly 15 years (in another bathroom) and still no drips, I've pretty much decided they're the only way to go. Only thing I don't like about this faucet is the inset plastic strainer which requires a special plastic tool to remove. With Tucson's hard water, strainers need to be cleaned at least twice a year, and once hard deposits form the strainers can be difficult to remove, so I'm concerned that Read More

          The RIDGID Model 2006 Faucet and Sink Installer is a multi-purpose under-sink plumbing tool that lets you work faster, easier and more efficiently on supply lines, fittings and nuts (lines and nuts not included). This faucet wrench fastens and removes plastic basin nuts and supply line nuts, along with 7/8 in. and 1 in. hex nuts. A great addition to any toolbox, its extra-long design is ideal for hard-to-reach applications, easily reaching mounting nuts on faucets and sprayers. This sink faucet wrench features a shut-off valve attachment that turns hard to reach angle stops without marring chrome and an open slot that allows easy access over existing supply lines. The opposite end of the sink faucet wrench has a strainer basket attachment that holds the drain unit in place while removing or installing the strainer nut. Built to last, the lightweight tool is made of high-strength plastic and comes with two durable aluminum inserts, one for turning angle stop handles and another for holding the strainer basket in place. Remove both inserts and the notched ends engage 2, 3, 4 and 6 tab basin nuts.

          Very handy tool. I only have good use of one arm, and this tool helped me install new lavatory faucet much easier than the "old " way using a basin wrench and/or wrenches which almost never fit in the space behind the sink. Job is bad enough just getting in the space under the sink in the vanity (or kitchen cabinet). This tool makes it much easier for anyone to do the job.
          My son helped me with another job recently and when I saw him use his to replace the bathtub drain, I knew I'd have to have one for myself. Highly recommend for anyone, with the basic skills to replace a faucet.

          This Hackzall is excellent for most anything I'll be doing anymore. No longer need the power of M18 or corded, since no longer involved in construction trades. Has plenty of power for light work. Size and weight make it very easy to handle one-handed, in virtually any position. Battery life is excellent.
          Pros: Accurate, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, Powerful

          Hex bolts are hexagonal head fasteners with machine threads. They are commonly used for machinery and construction projects, both residential and commercial. Fully threaded sizes provide excellent grip strength. Partially threaded sizes help where shear resistance is important. Secure with a corresponding nut or use in a tapped (threaded) hole.

          Answer: 
          Hey MtnMan,
          The head marking on these bolt is ADC, which means nothing about the grade. That being said,, these are SAE Grade 1 low-carbon steel with no strength rating, or grade 2 low-carbon steel with a proof load of 55,000 psi, minimum tensile strength of 74,000 psi, and minimum yield strength of 57,000 psi. Hope this helps.

          As for actual "lumens", I can't say, but Daylight "appears" much brighter than Bright White. All of my shop and outdoor, as well as task lights are daylight.
