          The Hampton Bay Low Voltage 50-Watt Equivalent LED Spot Light offers the option of three light colors. The integrated switch rotates to choose from 2700K Warm White, 3000K Soft White or 4000K Daylight light color. The flood beam angle is perfect for highlighting wide areas, as well as enhancing home security. On any of the 3 light color settings, it consumes over 80% less energy than a typical halogen light and has a rated life of 50,000 hours. The LED system provides maintenance free operation and there are no bulbs to change. With cast aluminum construction, long life powder coat finish and weatherproof electronics, you can count on many years of service. The quick-install wire connector means easy do-it-yourself installation that is quick and safe.

          My wife and I absolutely love these Hampton Bay LED Color Changing Spot Lights. This is our second one. A while back we received the 75 watt equivalent one and used it to light up our big huge tree in the middle of the yard and wanted something similar to up light the tree over in the corner. We really didn't want something so bright as the 75 watt equivalent though so this one being the 50 watt equivalent was perfect!
          As you can see in my attached pictures it lights up the whole trees trunk and the canopy perfectly. The fact that you can change the color of the light from a nice warm white color (2700K) to a softer white (3000K) to a bright white (4000K) makes these lights perfect for Read More

We really didn't want something so bright as the 75 watt equivalent though so this one being the 50 watt equivalent was perfect!
          As you can see in my attached pictures it lights up the whole trees trunk and the canopy perfectly. The fact that you can change the color of the light from a nice warm white color (2700K) to a softer white (3000K) to a bright white (4000K) makes these lights perfect for just about everyone. We like to use the bright white setting (4000K) for our trees which brings out so much more detail in the trunk and the leaves on the tree which makes it much more enjoyable to look at.
          We like to sit in our hot tub late in the evening with all the back yard lights on and listen to music and have a glass of wine and having all the trees up lit just really adds another dimension to how beautiful all the trees really are. I've always admired peoples homes who have trees or areas of their yard up lit and it's really great to now have it in our own back yard.
          This light has a 40* beam angle and a beam distance of 20 ft. which is perfect for our corner tree. It's probably about 20 to 25 ft. tall and this just makes that tree look fantastic when it's up lit. The one great thing I love about these spot lights is I will never have to change out a bulb in my spot lights ever again. I used to keep a small box of the 10 watt and 20 watt halogen bulbs in the garage and that is now a thing of the past. These LED bulbs will probably out last my lifetime.
          This spot light consumes 9 watts of electricity and puts out the equivalent of a 50 watt bulb. The light output is rated at 400 lumens and comes with a 5 year warranty.
          This light couldn't have been any easier to install. Since I already have a low voltage lighting system in our backyard that goes clear around the perimeter. I was able to dig up the buried low voltage wiring and remove the old spot light that was there. I then simply squeezed the new connector onto the low voltage wiring and then wrapped it tightly in black electrical tape to help keep the elements away from the contacts. All in all it took less than 5 minutes to remove and install the new spot light.
          The fit and finish of this spot light is fantastic. I can't honestly tell if it is painted or powder coated but either way the finish feels very thick and slightly textured. The way you can adjust the angle of the spot light is perfect for lighting up a sign or for pointing it straight up to light up a tree canopy like us. If you do mount the spot light pointing straight up they put a small slit in the cone around the face of it to drain water away so it wouldn't pool up on the glass. The engineers really thought of everything when they designed this spot light.
          With the exception of one or two lights in our backyard we have slowly over time converted all our back yard lighting from halogen to LED and it looks fantastic. I can't wait to get the last one or two done so we will be complete. If you are looking to light up a sign, a wall or a tree this Hampton Bay spot light is perfect. Read Less

          This spray cleaner is for stone, tile or laminate floors. I used it on my tile entry. The unique thing about this cleaner is that it can be used as a spray by itself or inserted into the Rejuvenate mop system by replacing the spray nozzle with an adaptor that came with the mop system we purchased separately. The bottle can be removed from the mop system and the spray nozzle reattached at any time. All in all it was very easy to use.
          One surprising thing we found is that this cleaner has almost no detectable odor. This is great for people who are sensitive to strong smelling cleaning solutions. The bottles says allow the floor to dry 10 minutes before walking on it. I found it dried Read More

          My wife and I recently got rid of our bedroom set we have been using for the last 25 years. We were looking to modernize and go a little more slim line. All our old furniture was oversized and bulky and took up a lot of space. This new Noble House Oak Brown 3-Tier TV Console fit the bill perfectly towards what we were trying to achieve.
          We laid everything out on the floor along with the instructions and went to town on it. It took about 30 minutes for the two of us to put it together. The instructions were well written and the pictured illustrations helped a lot.

          My wife and I recently got rid of our bedroom set we have been using for the last 25 years. We were looking to modernize and go a little more slim line.

          We laid everything out on the floor along with the instructions and went to town on it. It took about 30 minutes for the two of us to put it together. The instructions were well written and the pictured illustrations helped a lot. A few of our pieces didn't have the identifying "letters" on them which made it a little harder than it should have to put it together but since there really isn't that many pieces we figured it out regardless. The whole thing is put together with two different size Allen screws and they give you the two different sized Allen wrenches so you don't have to provide anything. It is all there for you.
          The metal framing is made out of iron and is very heavy duty and sturdy. It appears to be painted instead of powder coated but it looks great. The shelf material is made out of fir wood. It adds kind of a rustic feel to the whole thing but still feels clean and modern with the overall look.
          My wife and I are big time "gamers" so we have our Xbox One X on one shelf and it looks great and we don't have to worry about it overheating by being stuck in a cabinet like our old setup. When ever we played games previously we always had to open the cabinet door so the system could breathe but we don't have to do that with this setup which is nice.
          We have our old 60" plasma tv on this stand and it supported the weight of it with ease along with being the perfect size for looking balanced as far as tv size to stand size. Having three shelves makes this stand future proof for us in case we want to add any other components. Over all my wife and I are very, very pleased with how well this stand is made and the overall look of how it turned out once together. We are good to go for another 25 years now ;o) Read Less

          Making mopping just a bit easier the new Hoover Professional Series ONEPWR Cordless Floor Mate Jet Hard Floor Cleaner was very easy to assemble. Just insert the handle and you are ready to go. The unit is very easy to wheel around when not in use and handles nicely while in use. The battery needs to be charged before first use which takes about 3 hours. The battery has a convenient push button on top to show how much charge it has. The included solution is concentrated so you only have to add a little to the water tank along with the water. For my first use I used the large area fill line.

          Making mopping just a bit easier the new Hoover Professional Series ONEPWR Cordless Floor Mate Jet Hard Floor Cleaner was very easy to assemble.

The battery needs to be charged before first use which takes about 3 hours. The battery has a convenient push button on top to show how much charge it has. The included solution is concentrated so you only have to add a little to the water tank along with the water. For my first use I used the large area fill line.
          I used the floor mate to tackle my downstairs areas which consists of heavy tile and linoleum. I successfully cleaned the kitchen, entry, bathroom and laundry room on one battery charge. I also cleaned 2 carpet runners and a rug. I was worried from reading other reviews that I would run out of battery before I was able to finish. I instead found myself racing the level of cleaning solution more than battery life. I was also using the eco setting since it was a basic clean up and not heavy duty. You do get less battery life using the higher setting. Refilling the solution bottle is a lot easier than waiting 3 more hours for the battery to charge.
          My kitchen tile has thick dark grout which takes a lot of fluid to get clean no matter what method I am using. I think this accounts for the amount of cleaning solution that I needed to use.
          The major bonus for me was being able to get a good clean on my rugs. They are too thin to use a regular carpet cleaner and this was perfect for making them look great again. Helps to know that they have finally got a light cleaning.
          This unit comes with 2 different roller types. The extra one was extra soft so I just used the included basic one for my tile floors.
          If you have other Hoover ONEPWR items then having multiple batteries is definitely a plus. I checked the battery after use and the battery showed that there were still 3 out 4 bars on the battery meter. It is nice you can check the battery level without removing it from the unit. Just flip open the battery compartment lid and press the button to show the battery strength meter.
          I found the floors were still left wet, but not as wet as my previous methods for floor cleaning. They also dried quickly. The dirty water tank was easy to remove for emptying and cleaning. The water was filthy so it was obviously doing the job of picking up and cleaning. I intentionally didn’t sweep any of the areas I cleaned beforehand. It seemed to pick up small debris and hair quite well. The unit changes sound noticeably when it is time to empty the tank. The dirty water tank has a filter which they recommend cleaning monthly. Just clean with water and mild detergent and let dry completely.
          I would say the thing that takes the most time is the clean up and break down after using the Hoover Floormate. It wasn’t hard and will probably seem less involved after each use. The Rinse & Storage Tray provided for cleaning the unit is definitely a plus. You simply set the unit in the tray, add water, then run for 15 seconds. After this you just empty the dirty water tank and rinse. The roller is also removed. The included tray has a handy slot for inserting the roller into so it can dry before the next use. The thing that takes the most time is waiting for the parts to dry. This is common for this style of cleaners though. I would definitely recommend this for quick mop up jobs and overall cleaning. It is especially great for those area rugs. I wish the head was a bit narrower since it didn’t fit down the one side of my toilet in the bathroom. Also it would be nice to be able to use other products for the cleaning solution. At least the solution is concentrated and it seems like the bottle will last awhile.
          All in all we are very pleased with our new Hoover Professional Series ONEPWR Cordless Floor Mate Jet Hard Floor Cleaner and we are looking forward to years and years of use out of it. We already own the Hoover SmartWash Advanced Pet Automatic Carpet Cleaner and they match perfectly when stored in the upstairs closet. It is very nice having both a corded and cordless floor cleaner so we can now clean all the surfaces in our house with ease. Read Less

          It’s amazing how slim these flexible light strips are. They are made for indoor applications. The power supply is quite large compared to the strip of lights.

          Before installing everything I plugged them in on my work bench to make sure everything worked. Unfortunately, they didn’t work. It was confusing since after using a voltage meter everything was getting power. I contacted the company (who had great customer service) and they sent me a replacement 8 ft. light roll, power pack & remote. This didn’t solve the problem either. I have spent several hours trying to troubleshoot what could possibly be wrong. In the end I couldn't get anything to work. This was very disappointing since I’m sure the lights would have looked great under my kitchen counters. Read Less

          5-Piece Combination Ratcheting Wrench Set has standard pattern ratcheting combination wrenches that need as little as 5 degrees to move fastener vs. 30 degrees for standard wrench. Gearwrench surface drive design of box end provides for stronger grip on wrenches and less fastener rounding. Nickel chrome finish for long corrosion resistant tool life.

          The remote runs on a watch battery. Specifically a CR2032 3V. I have attached a picture of the back of the remote. Hopefully it allows you to read it. Let me know if I you need more help.

          Answer: 
          Since the light is held in place by two spring clips you can remove the light after it's installed to access the switch as long as you can reach the light from a ladder. If you had this light installed in some place that is way out of reach then it would be hard to access. The switch is "in-line" between the light and the junction box so it should be accessible.
