          I had the grandchildren and friends up for the weekend. They had been using the 2-man tube. It developed a hole in the seam of one insert and deflated. When they came up to see if we could fix it, I was sure this Flex Tape would do the job because the description says; “FLEX TAPE is a super strong, rubberized, waterproof tape that can patch, bond, seal and repair virtually everything. It is specially formulated with a thick, flexible, rubberized backing that conforms to any shape or object.” We cut a piece a lot longer than the hole because we wanted to seal it good. They went out and filled it again. It looked like it gapped but we were hopeful that the air couldn’t get out. It did. So that Read More
          I had the grandchildren and friends up for the weekend. They had been using the 2-man tube. It developed a hole in the seam of one insert and deflated. When they came up to see if we could fix it, I was sure this Flex Tape would do the job because the description says; “FLEX TAPE is a super strong, rubberized, waterproof tape that can patch, bond, seal and repair virtually everything. It is specially formulated with a thick, flexible, rubberized backing that conforms to any shape or object.” We cut a piece a lot longer than the hole because we wanted to seal it good. They went out and filled it again. It looked like it gapped but we were hopeful that the air couldn’t get out. It did. So that was a fail. Maybe since it was the seam, or we didn’t get it all pressed down really good it just didn’t work.
          Later we decided to try it on the boat seats that, due to being in the water for 15 years and docked at a dock that doesn’t have a roof, the stitching is failing (not to mention the pitting from the elements even with a boat cover on it) It doesn’t look pretty and maybe I should have used one large piece but if it holds the seats together and keeps the water from going into the foam, I’ll be happy.
          The description says “FLEX TAPE can be applied hot or cold, wet or dry even underwater. It instantly seals out water, air and moisture to create a super strong, flexible, watertight barrier... FLEX TAPE is UV resistant, environmentally friendly, VOC-free and has a wide temperature range so it can be used in extreme weather conditions
          ” It didn’t work on that float insert. It will take a couple of months to see if it works on the boat seats. It sure does stick to your fingers while trying to handle it!!

          Make your home more secure and stylish with this motion activated outdoor flood light. The ClearView Edgelit Translucent Light Panel Technology feature lets the light fixture blend in to your home exterior. The new technology allows dim accent light to shine from the back of the panels to create a soft wall wash ambient lighting affect. This fixture gives a warm white color temperature of 3000K at a bright 2000 Lumens. The DualBrite feature allows dim accent light from dusk to dawn and full bright when motion is detected.

          The strength and coverage area of the light is excellent. It provides better light than my conventional halogen flood light and it stays cool. The controls are positioned on the bottom of the sensor.
          The controller does three things:
          (1) DUAL BRITE which allows you to leave an accent light on during the night, without any motion;
          (2) SENS which enables you to change the size of the area that will detect motion;
          (3) ON TIME which tells the unit how long to leave the light on after the motion detector activates the light.
          DUAL BRITE the options are:
          (1) leave light on from dusk to dawn;
          (2) for 5 hours or OFF.
          (3) OFF, tells the unit not to use DUAL BRITE.

          (3) OFF, tells the unit not to use DUAL BRITE.
          SENS you can adjust the sensor level to low, medium, or high coverage
          ON TIME you choose between leaving the light on after activation for 5 or 20 minutes
          There is also a test option that leaves the light on for about 15 seconds so you can watch the light activate and go off.
          Each of the nine choices are labeled and when you choose an option a red light comes on. There are three round gray buttons that are used to go between options. Each button is associated with one of the three categories. For me, it is hard to stand on the ladder, look up to see the controls, read the small print, push the right gray button, and see that I have gotten to the choices I want.
          The installation has three steps. Attach the three wires to the base by sliding them into holes. Screw the base onto the electrical box. Then snap the unit onto the base and close the tighten lever.
          The set up can take a little time. In my case, once I completed the installation the power to the unit did not come on, so I had to take it apart and run a power test by assembling the unit on the ground and play with the wire connections in the holes to ensure the wires kept connection to the base connectors. So far, I have not been successful in getting the sensor to detect motion around a full 270 degrees. Right now, I have achieved about 150 degrees. I will keep playing with it.
          There are two plastic panels that house the LED lighting. Each panel can be moved to direct the light in the direction you want. This is a nice feature.
          The strengths are quality construction, great light design and performance, easy installation steps, and accurate/quick motion detection. The negative is the design of the wire connection system on the base. It does not hold the wires tight enough.

          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Eco-Friendly, Functional, Nice Design, Unique, Very Bright
          Cons: base wire connection not good

          These Everbilt Classic Oil-rubbed Bronze Cabinet Knobs are really beautiful. With their delicate rope edge they are a perfect touch for so many areas. I’m starting with the cabinet I just finished painting. These knobs are constructed with durable zinc so they should last a long time. They come with 2 lengths of screws so they will fit most cabinets. I had to use the shorter one for my cabinet and will also need the shorter ones for a dresser that needs new knobs.
          Pros: Durable, Nice Design, Stylish, comes with hardware

          Beyond Paint says it was designed specifically for refinishing furniture, cabinets, countertops and accessories. It says it’s an all-in-one bonder/primer/finisher that cures quickly into a durable and washable surface. It also says no stripping, sanding or priming required. It says that you can complete your project in one or two coats.

          None of this proved true in my case. (well, I didn’t strip it and I didn’t sand it and I didn’t prime it) but I did clean the cabinet and let it dry overnight. The next day I put on the first coat – mostly with a roller like the directions said. There was a lot of bleed through and see through spots. I was hoping the 2nd coat would make it right. Due to a family illness, I had to wait for 8 days to put on the second coat so the first coat should have been plenty dry. The second coat didn’t do much better. There is still bleed through and see through in lots of places. (this can be seen in the pictures – I apologize for the coloring – my lighting wasn’t) It cured after 3 days and completely cured after 30 days – then you can maintain it with water and a mild soap) This just didn’t turnout like I had hoped it would. Since it didn’t do what I hoped, I might try to add some antiquing to it later. It certainly doesn’t have a professional finish. The best thing about the whole process is that Beyond Paint is water based and the clean-up is really easy. Just soap and water. It’s also quite pricy so I’d expect better results. Read Less

          I have been looking for something that would keep my power strips where I want them. I have tried many many double-sided tapes that were supposed to hold anything. I’d stick the tape to the strip and then stick both to the desk or wherever I wanted them and before I could turn around, they’d be on the floor. For the first time ever, I used the PermaStik Mirror Mounting Tape and those strips are still stuck after 10 days.

It will work on glass, sealed plaster, primed concrete, treated timbers, stainless steel, tiles and vinyl. I have it on my desk. If you have to remove the object, the company says to use fishing line or dental floss and cut through the adhesive to remove the bulk of the adhesive pad. Then you can remove the rest of the adhesive with adhesive solvent. Even if it leaves a little residue on my desk, that’s ok because that will have a better chance of coming off than a screw hole or nail hole. I have no doubt that this stuff will hold pretty much anything. PermaStik has other strengths of tape but I wanted my best shot at making these strips staying where I put them. I’m pretty sure that this tape will hold almost anything. Read Less
