          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Grabbed this brooder lamp less for raising chicks or as a warming light for an amphibian - but to provide me with light and some warmth while working in my garage during the winter. The idea was I would move it between my workshop desks to provide a spotlight that gives off some heat so I can stay warm under it. So the porcelain socket works great. As does the metal reflector and protector shield.
          Why did I ultimately only give it 2 out of 5 stars? It fails to stay put. There are 2 key adjustments on the leg on the back. 1) the wing nut to tighten down where the light head shines.

Try as I might, it was still too loose (after using vice grips) and would flop around. 2) the clamp - its designed with a bulge to go around a bar, but if you try to use it on a bar that is not rough it will fall over. I could connect it to a 1x4, but the clamp doesn't open large enough to work with a 2x4.
          It does come with a D-ring on the back of the lamp; so if you plan to hang the light from a chain - this will work well. Last comment, there is no switch on the cable so its turned on/off at the plug (not a reason to drop a star, but should be noted for those looking). Read Less

          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.
          I see a handful of questions on how long it is, from one edge bracket to the other is 23.5 inches.

          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.

          Answer: 
          If you mean the valve at the water temp area, or sometimes the pull up item on the bath spicket. No.
          The only 'valve' is on the base of the shower head which directs water to the handheld head, the big head or both. See picture.

          Answer: 
          The LEDs are built into the light sconce so if they or the driver goes, you probably have to replace the entire sconce. It's actually a glued down ring of LED chips and a big driver on the back. Most NuTone fan lights seem to use the same connector. Or you probably could retrofit in a light if you think it would be safe in a damp environment.

          Answer: 
          You would need to have a separate power wire run to the fan housing following your areas power code, but it is possible because inside the power connection box in the fan, the light and fan plug into different wires. And you connect the wires to the power wires and switches you desire.
