          Strong hook that is extremely easy to install tightly to the roof. I am very impressed with this ceiling hook. I'm currently using it to hold my hummingbird feeder off my back porch. Its screwed into some hardi-board (which required pre-drilling a pilot hole since its cement). But it was extremely easy to install and if I wanted to migrate it around it would also be an easy task.
          It comes with the hook, a special screw and a drywall anchor. You may not need the drywall anchor if not installing in drywall but it comes with what you need. The hook itself is made of metal, painted white. The screw is coated for outdoor use. The 'smarts' of the hook is that it latches over the special screw. Read More

The hook itself is made of metal, painted white. The screw is coated for outdoor use. The 'smarts' of the hook is that it latches over the special screw. Basically you push the open end of the hook towards the base. Its on a metal axel with spring mounted ball bearings to lock it in the regular use position. Once you have changed the angle of the hook you can now connect it to the special screw. It just slides over top, you then push the hook back to its normal position and it grabs hold of the screw. My humming bird feeder does swing in the breeze and this has not been a problem for the hook. Read Less

          Strong & sturdy with hole flexibility. Designed for recessed ceilings with metal cross members for connecting, this UL listed lighting brace will come in handy for those working in those environments. This is not meant for 2x4 installs and the width is not flexible. Buy the size you need.

          The PowerPlug features patented Ideal push-in technology that quickly locks wires in place. It helps reduce electrical shock hazard during ballast replacement by safely disconnecting hot and neutral ballast wiring while offering additional safety since both halves meet UL and CSA finger-probe safety requirements. The entire family easily fits through 1/2 in. knockouts for quick installation. Available in 2-pole, 3-pole and 2-pole plus ground models, the PowerPlug provides fast, efficient luminaire connections resulting in reduced installation time and improved labor savings.

          Makes changing light fixtures easier. These are designed to be used when updating your lights to LED. You put one end on the fixture and the other connects to the wires in the house. Basically you push them to connect and they crimp down on the wire. Its marked B for black hot wire and the other is for the neutral. (Ground is usually wired directly to the box or you can get the 3 wire version from Ideal). They also are 'keyed' so they will only go together in one direction, so assuming you put the right wires in the correct spot they will line up appropriately.

          I used these to update the lighting in the kitchen and now have extras for other lights I plan on updating. I found they left lots of room in the lighting box so it made it very easy to put the wires away before attaching the light. Read Less

          Versatile 4-in-1 screwdriver. Grabbed this screwdriver to put in my kitchen 'odds and ends' drawer. You know, for when you need a screwdriver but don't want to go hunting for one in your toolbox. This is perfect for that purpose. First its well constructed and has 4 different sized heads. its 2 Philips (+) and 2 - straight heads. They are of different sizes. The ends flip around and the middle comes out and flips around also. For a flipping screwdriver its strong. No shaking or wobbling of the bit. Inside the screwdriver handle is a metal ring that holds the metal cylinder in place. It is 'keyed' so it goes in and stays put. The end bits use a ball bearing to hold it in place.

          Use the Klein Tools Ironworker's Work Pliers to twist and snip soft annealed rebar tire wire. The knurled jaws aid in easy twisting and turning. These pliers feature a hook-bend in the handle for added grip and leverage. Unique handle tempering helps absorb the ''snap'' when cutting wire.

          Great quality. Nice hand feel. Feels very precise when using them to twist wire or snip wire. The teeth are jagged so it makes gripping great, no slipping sideways. The pliers do have a spring assisted opening so they want to remain 'open' when not in use. This makes it easier to go from one job to the next but it also means you need to store them upside-down and depending on how your other pliers are made this may be odd. But not a detractor. It makes grabbing them one fluid motion and easier to start working.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Sturdy

          The blades on the polished nickel version look wood/brown color; but the info for all 3 says matt black. What color are the polished nickel version blades?

          Answer: 
          The blades are made of plastic. Under a light source they will look very dark brown. They have a wood look because there are different veins of black/brown grain running up the blades. I would not say they are pine or oak. Closer to an extremely dark walnut that has been stained darker.

          Yes - there is a switch on the control panel to turn the oven light on and off.
          Note the oven light does not automatically turn on when you open the oven door like a fridge might, instead you have to push the oven light button on the control panel.
