          The Milwaukee 5 Foot Mid Flex Fiberglass Fish Sticks with accessories work very well for pulling wires in places that are not very accessible. This can be used by itself to reach spaces less than tive feet. It can also be used with Home Depot item 309349788 to reach areas from 5 – 20 feet. It comes with 2 different types of tips. A bullet nose and a hook.
          I needed to run a wire across some rafters in the attic space on my closed in back porch. I attached the bullet nose onto the fish stick and slid it, nose first, across the top of the rafters until the bullnose end reached the opening on the opposite side.

          I disconnected the bullnose from the fish stick. I twisted part of the wire, to be installed, through the bullnose and then reattached it to the leading end of the fish stick, by starting the threads and twisting the rod into the nose until it was tight. At this time, I loosened the wire roll so that it would pull freely. Going back to the trailing end of the fish stick, I started pulling it and the wire gently until the end of the wire was across all the rafters necessary to be able connect it at the new electrical light box.
          This fish stick glow in the dark. This can be very helpful if you drilled a hole into a crawl space to run some wire. It can be very difficult to find that hole, after you climb into the craw space. By sliding the fish sticks through the hole and into the crawl space, it is extremely visible, even in total darkness.

          This Advanced Mound Eliminator Granule product is for the treatment of fire ant mounds only. It is only recommended for fire ants and no other types of pests. It is only to be used on visible fire ant mounds and not broadcast with a spreader. Gently spray water onto the area to be treated to make it wet. Apply !/2 cup of granules onto the mound and a 4 foot radius around the mound. Then apply 1 1/2 gallon of water onto the granules.

The Safety sheet states not to remove the clothing and apparel from the workplace prior to washing everything. This product can be very harmful to fish, pets and people. I have a Koi pond and an indoor pet. We have had a lot of rain lately with run off. I felt that this product would be too much of a risk to my family, animals, fish and the environment to use. I chose not to open the product.

          My wife said that this Stone, Tile and Laminate Floor Cleaner was easy to use. It is a no mix formula and can be sprayed directly onto the floor and mopped as normal. The bottle is also designed to fit some brands of spray mops. This cleaner does not require any rinsing. She said that all of these features are a good plus that she liked.
          It cleaned nicely and did not leave any residue on the laminate floor. It dries quickly and leaves the floor feeling very clean. It does put a slight shine onto the floor, but not a glossy look. This cleaner has a nice smell. She recommends this product and will use it again.

          This product can have multiple uses around your home. It can be laid flat and used as a folding table and then stack the folded laundry into the middle of the carrier. Grasp together the handles of both sides of the carrier. Now you can carry the folded laundry to wherever you store it. Also, this carrier could be used to carry your dirty laundry to the laundry room. This may be handy in your home or in a college dorm. The carrier folds flat when not in use. Folded dimensions are aprox. 2" H x 7" W x 21" L.
          If you enjoy camping, this carrier could be used to gather kindling or fire wood to then carry back to the campsite.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, Sturdy

          When the pull-down nozzle is undocked, how far into the sink can it pull down? I have read answers ranging from “it doesn’t” (makes no sense) and pictures showing it pulled down a couple inches from the bottom of the sink...and others say it only pulls down a few inches to about the counter level.

          Answer: 
          Pulling straight down, it reaches about 5 inches below the top of the sink. Naturally, less if it is moved on an angle. We have never had any problem with the spray water pressure reaching all parts of the sink.

Remove the empty spool, insert one end of the trim line into the provided hole in spool, wrap line in the direction of the arrows on the spool. When full, cut line, leaving about 6" beyond spool.

          First, I do not have a lawnmower to test my answer. In theory, all 18+ batteries are suppose to fit any 18+ tool that Ryobi makes. The width of the 9.0ah battery is the same as the 4.0ah. The height of the 9.0ah is taller. With this said, if the lawnmower has any kind of a cover over the batteries, it may not close with the taller battery. If so, you may be able to leave the cover open or remove it. Read More
