          Klein Tools Flip-Blade Insulated Screwdriver is 2 drivers in 1 tool. Easily flip the screwdriver blade with the twist-lock, auto-eject mechanism to use either the #2 Phillips or in. Slotted end. There are 2 layers of insulation to protect from electric shock. A thick, exceptionally tough, high-dielectric white inner coating is bonded to the tool, while a bright orange outer coating is flame and impact resistant. Klein insulated tools exceed the ASTM F1505 standards for insulated tools, and are clearly marked with the official 1000-Volt rating symbol.

          Great screwdriver that is easy to change. The blade swapping mechanism on this Klein is very interesting. You twist the black ring closest to the blade and the blade pops out. It appears to use a metal bar to hold the flip-blade in place and the twist moves the piece of metal and the blade pops out. Makes for a quick and easy to use blade change for your screwdriver. Beyond this functionality, the blades are very strong. There is NO wobble. And I don't feel like there is any movement in the blade when I use it. (This can happen with other types of swapping screwdrivers, but not here). Very pleased. Will hold a prominent spot in my toolbox for sure.

          This 1-3/4 in. x 36 in. Brown PVC Door Bottom Replacement for Stanley Steel Doors snaps into place easily once the old seal is removed. The door bottom features a 4-fin design. Suggestion: if by chance the "snap in" doesn't hold a little GORILLA Glue will work.

          The base of my front door lost its weather stripping and the builder had used staples that were shifting to install. Fortunately it came off easily and this replacement went on relatively smoothly. What I find missing is information about which is supposed to be the 'back' and front of the product. It is not uniformly designed so there is supposed to be a back and a front but no indications I could find of which is which. But it went on easy, 2 minute install or less. I didn't have to trim for my front door, but my back door will need some cutting when I go to replace it.

          This LED ceiling light fixture offers a modern dual ring design. The solid white shade diffuses the light evenly, you won't see any dark spots or shadows. The use of this matte black finish and the sophistication of this style has taken hold in today's home interior light fixtures. This ceiling flushmount is designed to be maintenance free and save money. The LED light engine produces the light of (3) 100-Watt light bulbs using only 40-Watt of electricity, and there are no bulbs to replace. These flush mounted ceiling lights are built from steel to last for years to come; they are backed by a 3 year limited manufacturer's warranty. These light fixtures install easily, and the LEDs last for 34 years at 4 hours per day.

          The light does look nice. Installs in less than 10 minutes. I went for this light because of the side defusers in hopes that it would produce lights in all directions. It seems to give lights out the side and down. I should mention that the white shroud is plastic, I thought it would be frosted glass based on the pictures so I thought I would mention. The back panel is metal and attaches to the ceiling directly with anchors.
          Website suggests its 3000 lumen, I think this is accurate. However it does produce strong shadows and was not as bright as the fluorescent tubes it is replacing. The light it produces is closer to the 'cool blue white' though not all the way in that direction. It is Read More

The light it produces is closer to the 'cool blue white' though not all the way in that direction. It is definitely not warm white light. I would not use this as the only light source of a room. You will need 2 of these on the ceiling if you want to insure you don't have shadows. For those who care, it is not a UL tested light - just ETL, which is another newer lab doing electronics testing. Last thing to mention - while the website suggests 'damp suitable' none of the stickers on the back of the product mention this. Read Less

          Nice set of ratchets. The smaller is a ¼ in and larger a ⅜ option. Both have a comfortable handle and have a head end that can be bent forwards or backwards to get into tight locations.
          The down side of using them with the head flexed all the way back into an 'L' shape is you lose leverage benefits. But having it in a less than 'L' shape, it still provides leverage. Such is the fun of physics.
          Some may ask 'given you have a neck that moves forward and backward, does it loosen over time and get wobbly'. While I've only had it for a short time, it seems to be strongly built. I have hit the arm with a hammer a few times on stuck bolts and it has not weakened at all. (Yes, I should have Read More

          Great for woodworking and car work and cleaning. Fit my hand nicely. Seem to be relatively tough and don't break easily.
          I like to have nitrile gloves around the house for many uses. They come in very handy especially when you don't want to spend 20 minutes washing your hands to get grease or oil off your hands or out from under your nails. These gloves by glove works have a nice diamond texture to them so if you are working with water or something greasy / oily it helps to give you a little more hold.
          I recommend doing like what nurses do on TV; and probably in real life. And that is to blow into the gloves. Just hold the hole up to your mouth and give a breath. This causes the Read More

          I recommend doing like what nurses do on TV; and probably in real life. And that is to blow into the gloves. Just hold the hole up to your mouth and give a breath. This causes the glove to open like a balloon but most importantly it opens up the gloves that have been tightly packed for months in the box. It really makes it easier to put them on.
          Just used these to apply some shellac to some new shelves I'm building and another set to do some cleaning in the bathrooms. Worked great. Kept my hands clean. Read Less

          for my situation the water level is only about three or maybe 4 inches deep. That's why I'm looking for a pump to pull it off the bottom
