          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.

          Finally look forward to leftovers with the Dual Crisp function that cooks and crisps using traditional cooking power combined with a microwave crisper. Dual crisp delivers crispy results on the sensor cooking or timed setting, while the Brown function gives food a crunchy top layer. Plus, this fingerprint resistant stainless steel microwave keeps food warm for up to 60 minutes.

          Quiet & the dual crisp is interesting feature. I am pleased with this microwave. I've had it for a few weeks and it does a very nice job of heating my food. Better yet, its much much quieter than the microwave it replaces. And every other microwave I have used.
          I've used the dual crisp function a handful of times. Its basically an electric element on the top of the microwave that is used in combination with the microwave. Keep this in mind. You basically have an oven, inside your microwave. So if you use the dual crisp, manual crisp or browning button/features, it will warm up the inside of the microwave like your oven does.

          I've used the dual crisp function a handful of times. Its basically an electric element on the top of the microwave that is used in combination with the microwave. Keep this in mind. You basically have an oven, inside your microwave. So if you use the dual crisp, manual crisp or browning button/features, it will warm up the inside of the microwave like your oven does. Takes a different mindset if you usually just toss things in the microwave for years.
          I have used the presets and manual settings for the dual crisp. On the manual settings I was re-heating some leftovers and it warmed the food while keeping the outside from getting soggy. I also have used the preset functions, specifically I did some chicken nuggets, which took 16 minutes for 5 and they were indeed cooked and crisp from frozen. That said - the inside of the microwave gets extremely hot. I had to defrost something in the microwave after having heated up the nuggets and accidentally touched the metal. Very hot. Grabbed my infrared thermometer and it was reading 215F on the glass turntable. This is something to keep in mind. If you are going to want to 'zap' something after using a longer running dual-crisp function, you will need multiple plates. I had defrosted a hamburger bun, probably about 30 seconds in the microwave and the plate I had it on was too hot to touch because the inside of the microwave was hot. I'm not taking stars off, just providing insights.
          Other than that - its quiet. Warms great. Popcorn button listens for pops and then even gives a 20 second cool down so you don't burn yourself with steam. And the built in fan works great. Much better than my previous one. Overall I am very happy. (Oh the chime it uses is a little song, no beep beep beep). Read Less

          Your friends will thank you when you show up with the Beer Caddy soft-sided cooler filled with their favorite cold beverages. Not only does its waxed cotton canvas exterior look way cooler than a cardboard box, but it comes with a retractable bottle opener built-in so you never have to worry about it walking off - like those koozies you never saw a second time. The Beer Caddy comes with a removable padded divider and an adjustable shoulder strap. It holds six bottles securely, while allowing you to remove each bottle without having to open the flap. Keep your beverages cold and classy with the coolest beer caddy you've ever laid your eyes on.

          Great caddy. When you need to move a six pack and want to look stylish. This works nicely. The outer green looks nice. it mars easy, but that is by design. Its comfortable on your shoulder and better yet, if you are carrying it there are a handful of beers by your side. I tested with 6 tall-boys and 6 bottles. Bottles work best, and smaller cans would have been better, but tall cans do fit.
          The bottom is a little weak. When you are down to 1-2 beers, it will sag more and if its 2 beers there will be lots of clinking. I also felt the 'removable' inner spacer was kind of annoying I wish it was held down with velcro. But its not the end of the world. Also in one of the pockets is a bottle Read More

          Hampton Bay LED powered ceiling light fixtures are designed to enhance any decor and with a clean, fresh appearance. This modern LED ceiling light fixture easily mounts flush with the ceiling. The protective brushed nickel finish will look great for years to come, and the white lens diffuses the LED light evenly. You won't see any dark spots or shadows. This flush mount uses a LED powered lighting engine instead of light bulbs to produce higher quality light for a fraction of the electricity, saving you money off your utility bill. This light fixture produces 3,100 Lumens (about the equivalent of three 100-Watt bulbs) using only 40-Watt. The LED lighting source is made to last for 45 years at 3 hours per day; there are no bulbs to replace -ever.

          Replaced some 15 year old track lighting in my galley kitchen, and what a difference. For years we have disliked our track lighting but not enough to swap it out. Finally the team came, and so glad we made the change. The light is so much more uniform. It produces a 'hint of yellow' (closer to white than yellow) light that covers the kitchen nicely. The looks are great. Metal end caps with a metal strip down the middle. The white diffuser is made of plastic, (why I took 1 star off quality).
          You hang it using screws and slide the light onto the screws. Wiring it up was straight forward and the light even comes with a safety cable - so if the light shifts for whatever reason (earthquake?) Read More

          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.
