          BrassCraft 1/2 in. Nominal Push Connect Inlet x 3/8 in. OD Compression Outlet 1/4-Turn Straight Valve controls water flow to household plumbing fixtures - faucets, toilets, dishwashers, icemakers, washing machines, etc. The straight valve is most often used where the water pipe enters the room from the floor. With a 90° turn of the valve handle, you are able to stop the flow of water leading to the plumbing fixture, allowing for maintenance and repair without shutting off the water to the entire home. Color: Chrome.

          Sturdy straight through inlet with push to connect technology. You can tell by the weight that these are sturdy, high quality valves. I really like the push to connect design. The quarter turn valve has a quality feel to it and turns smoothly.
          Note these are straight through valves, not angled. The 3/8 connector side comes with a compression bolt, so you can install an ice maker line. Remove the nut and compression and install a 3/8 line to a faucet.
          Pros: Easy to Install

          Nice design on this black metal door stop that attaches to the wall. I selected this for a door that opens on a heating pipe. I can mount it lower or vary the location to assure the door doesn't hit the wall. If I chose to enclose the pipe with a cover, I could either mount the doorstop to the cover or move it higher on the wall above the cover.
          The rubber stopper, which keeps the door from getting marred, is removed to show an empty cavity. You attach the included anchor in the wall, then use the screw to attach the back of the doorstop to the anchor. Replace the rubber stopper and you're done.
          Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          Cirrus-X rollers feature a refined polyamide yarn that's soft, resilient and easy to load. This high-capacity European fabric offers fast and complete coverage. Cirrus is great for back rolling, base coats and finish coats. The soft fabric is also very durable and able to weather semi-smooth to extra- rough surface applications.

          Quality roller cover with deep nap for rough surfaces. I selected this roller cover for a stucco wall. I painted another section of the wall with a standard roller cover. I had to go over the same section multiple times to get good coverage. The depth of this cover will make my second wall easier. The nap is soft and mold itself to the variations in the stucco. A great timesaver when you want to paint a rough or textured surface.
          Pros: High Quality of Material

          Peace of mind from an exterminator strength bed bug killer. Selected for travel, but was given an unexpected test.
          We were on a cruise with friends when their cabin tested positive for bed bugs. It turned out to be a Royal pain. I had intended on transferring this to a smaller bottle to spray in beds when we travel as a safeguard. However, it was given a test when a house guest informed us they had found bed bugs in their home. Though the possibility was low, we were able to turn to this product and treat the areas they had slept or kept their luggage. So far, so good, no bed bugs a week later.

          Usage of the product is what caused me to score it a little lower. First, the spray is either stream or stronger stream. No way to get a spray. This probably allows it to penetrate seams, but a spray option would be preferred. Also, once pressurized both "off" settings resulted in a small puddle from a drip. A third negative is the color - it goes on milky white and dries white. You can see where you treated, but it should dry clear. The positives - no bed bugs is the big one, able to handle it without gloves, and odorless with no chemical fumes. Read Less

          Well detailed with beautiful embroidery. Not overly stuffed pillow. Attractive off white letters on a beige pillow. This pillow will compliment virtually any color scheme. A close look at the embroidery shows the quality workmanship. Each word is embroidered in a different font. Excellent quality. The only slight negative is the amount of stuffing. Shipped in airtight packaging, I expected it to expand more so I waited several days to write my review. This is more decorative than functional, so more stuffing would have resulted in a five star rating.
          Pros: Excellent Quality, High Quality of Material, Looks Great, Nice Design, Rich Looking, Well Made
          Cons: Size & Weight

          November 15, 2019
          Answer: 
          Can or should... You can't wear them over your glasses but you can take out the gasket, push them close to your face, and put your glasses over them. It's not ideal, but can be done for short periods of time.

          Our white ceramic kitchen (age 25 years) tile floor has several "spiderweb type" cracks that show dark lines against the white tile color. Will the first coat fill these cracks and change the color to that o
          the tint we choose? Or: should we fill in (not very deep) the thin cracks with something before applying the first coat?
          September 28, 2019
          Answer: 
          I didn't have the spiderweb problem, but I think this should work. The base coat filled in the grout lines fairly well and the top coat added another layer of smoothness. I'd recommend a double top coat for your spiderwebs. Also, you may want to go with the matte finish because the glossy could show the imperfections more. I think this would do the job for you.

          This says it's $99 per case... but the description says its only 1 gallon.. then it says 2pack. So is it 2 gallons for $99? Is this not sold as a single gallon? ... if you must buy 2 gallons, can you get one base coat and one top coat to create your 2 gallons?
          September 28, 2019
          Answer: 
          You can purchase in individual gallons. This is a 2 pack of the base coat. Buying one base and on top is about the same price as the 2 pack.
