          Klein Tools new durable headlamp gives you bright, all-day light on either the bright spot setting or the lower, wide-casting flood light setting. Removing this headlamp for recharging is easy, just slide the lamp out of the bracket on the silicone strap no need to remove the strap from your hard hat. You'll know when it's time to recharge the lamp, because the LED lights on the battery gauge clearly indicate how much battery you have left. This headlamp also features new auto-sensing technology that turns off the unit after three minutes in bright light saving battery and a little embarrassment.

          The Klein headlamp has a super-bright spotlight mode, which is a relatively narrow focused beam, and a less-bright floodlight mode, which casts light at a wider angle all around. The box seems very durable and well-suited to places where it can take a beating. The charger is a micro-USB, so the same one used for Android phones. There is an auto-off feature, where the light turns off automatically if it is bright light (very bright, like direct sunlight) for more than a few minutes. The push-button power switch turns the light on, switches from spotlight to floodlight mode, and then turns it off (if you push it in succession).

The only thing I don't love about the light is the strap. It's a grippy rubber strap, about 1" wide, that would be great on a smooth hardhat but not so good on a non-smooth hat or directly on your head. Overall, it's a solid headlamp that seems well suited to construction sites, mines, or caves (as a former caver, I wish I'd had this a few years ago!). Read Less
          Pros: Durable, bright, wide beam

          This is a double-nine (55-piece) set, which means that if you have four players, you can each start with nine dominoes instead of the usual six with a standard 28-piece set. The box is nice - not super solid but strong enough to do its job. The dominoes themselves are plastic and their size is easy to handle. The brass spinners are a nice touch - those are intended to avoid scratching your tabletop and also make them easier to pick up. I didn’t have any dominoes of my own but like to play occasionally, and this set will probably be my long-term keeper set.
          Pros: Easy to Use, 55-piece instead of normal 28-piece

          Great notebooks, and the three-pack is just right. They're handy for the woodshop and worksite, though I even keep one in my pocket for meetings. The spiral binding is bigger than it needs to be, and I wish it was a little smaller. Each page has a faint grid pattern on the front and a plain back. The covers are thick and protective so that pages don’t get wrinkle or torn.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight

          This pretty planter fits onto my kitchen window sill and matches my backsplash tile, so I’m happy. In real life, it looks a bit darker than it does on my computer screen, but grades from darker to lighter teal from bottom to top. There are holes for drainage and a bottom rim to prevent spilling if you overwater, but because the overflow base is small and shallow, it’s still possible to overwater and overflow the container (just don’t overwater your plants - they don’t like it anyway).
          Pros: Stylish, Vibrant Color, overflow rim

          ShowerStart TSV is a nifty little life-hack that forever changes the things that annoy you most about your shower. Gone are the days of standing around waiting for the water to get hot. Gone are the days of family members letting the shower run endlessly, when no one's in it. Gone are the days getting the last shower of the morning and running out of hot water. Installation is about as easy as changing a lightbulb, doesn't lower showerhead pressure or flow and saves thousands of Gal. of water, as well as the energy used to heat it - year, after year, after year. How ShowerStart TSV Works: 1) Turn on the shower. Cold water exits. Continue with your typical routine - the things you do while waiting for the shower to become warm. 2) ShowerStart kicks in. When the water reaches 95F, ShowerStart automatically lowers the flow to a trickle - saving hot water until you're ready to get in. 3) Ready when you are. You know your shower is warm, so pull the cord to resume full flow and begin showering.

          This is a really simple device that does what it says it does. My husband installed it in about 10 minutes on our existing shower head. To use it, just turn on the shower and wait for this device to automatically turn the water off - that’s the cue that the water is hot (the instructions say 95 degrees, but it feels a little warmer than that - which is good, in my opinion). When you get into the shower, pull the cord and the water turns back on. I was hoping that I’d also be able to pull the cord for a stop/start feature so that I could do a military-style super-efficient shower, but it doesn’t - it only stops the flow when water is less than about 95 degrees.

          Does this range have any flanges (or "wings") that cover the gap between the range and the adjacent countertop? I'm looking for a range with no flanges - just a flat edge that abuts the countertop. Thank you for any responses.

          Answer: 
          The product description says indoors. However, I installed one of the similar Kasa bulbs (the multicolor one) in my outdoor porch light and it worked fine, even in temps down to about 20F and with dimming to about 30% brightness (I didn't try any lower than that). That said, I suspect outdoor use might void the 2-year warranty.

          I'd recommend getting a new faucet as it would be easier than drilling new 8" holes for your old faucet. If you want an 8" faucet though, you could certainly drill new holes (if you have proper tools and skills) and then get an ecutcheon to cover the old holes.
