          I have been wanting a clamp-on vise for one reason and one reason only for the longest time. I have wanted it so that I could clamp the vise onto my fence outdoors for doing messy projects. I keep my garage and my garage floor very clean and I don't want to spray chemicals in there or use a wood file or metal file and make a mess that gets tracked back in the house so having a vise I can clamp on the fence is perfect.
          I know I could just bust out the shop vac and vacuum it all up but it seems like an extra step to me. I would rather clamp the vise onto my fence and I can make as big of a mess as I want without the wife yelling at me for tracking stuff in the house.

          This little 3" vise from Dewalt clamps onto the fence perfectly and doesn't move or wobble at all when its clamped down tight. I can take it off the shelf and clamp it on the fence in less than 30 seconds whenever I want to do something that is going to make a mess.
          If I need to spray some degreaser on something to clean it I don't have to worry anymore about getting the overspray on my workbench or the garage floor. If a it gets on my fence or the gravel below it is no big deal.
          If you are looking for a great little vise I would look no further then this beauty from Dewalt. The fact that it has the Dewalt name on it lets you know you are getting a quality product. They are even standing behind it with a limited lifetime warranty so you can't beat that. I'm looking forward to getting years and years of use out of this little guy. Read Less

          I was looking for something exactly like this to plug my outside Christmas lights into each year. This is perfect because you can turn it off/on via remote or have it turn on at dusk and off at dawn or after 2,4,6,8 hours (which repeats daily).
          It comes with a manual override switch, LED indicator light (so you know it's powered on), two mounting holes (in case you decide to mount it), 14/3 6" cord (for plugging into an existing outlet) & (3) grounded outlets with safety covers.

          All in all I'm very impressed with this Woods Lighting Timer with Remote. The fact that I can now turn my Christmas tree lights on/off from the comfort of my house is very nice. In the past I had to reach over the top of my hedge and down behind it to plug/un-plug my lights every night which was a big pain. Most of the time we would just end up leaving them on all night which was kind of a waste of electricity.
          If you are looking for a great way to power something off/on remotely or via the built in timer I would definitely give this Woods timer a try. You will be very happy you did. Read Less

          From the shower to the bathtub to the sauna, this awesome bamboo bench is the perfect addition to your functional decor collection. It is highly attractive, impressively strong, and surprisingly comfortable. Sit pretty on the supportive seat while resting your books, towels, electronics, grooming and hygiene essentials on the slatted storage shelf. Best of all, it looks great in any bathroom and is especially suited for nature and country-themed spaces.

          My wife and I were looking for a shower seat for our MBR bath room shower when we found this. It fit our shower perfectly without taking up too much space. Our shower is not that big to begin with so I was worried about how big it was going to be but it ended up being the perfect size.
          This Bambusi bamboo shower seat with storage shelf was super, super easy to put together. All the parts were easily identifiable by the little white lettered stickers they placed on each piece and the instructions were the best my wife and I have ever used. They even supplied the necessary Allen wrench to put it all together. All in all it took about 15 minutes to put it together.

They even supplied the necessary Allen wrench to put it all together. All in all it took about 15 minutes to put it together.
          The fit and finish of this shower seat is superb! It looks very high end and adds a spa like feel to any place you put it. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none in how well they finished it. There are no rough edges and everything looks and feels well thought out. The hardware they give you is high end and not that cheap stuff you see with several other products. There are even pre-installed soft rubber feet on the bottom of the stool which helps it not scratch your tub or shower and prevents it from slipping.
          This shower stool would be perfect for anyone that has had a surgery of some sort and needs to have a stool to sit on in the tub or shower. I have had (4) knee surgeries and this would have been perfect in the past. This stool would also be great for setting next to a shoe rack for putting your shoes on or taking them off. My wife says this is also the perfect stool for shaving her legs in the shower which is an added bonus.
          Our past chair we used in the shower (post surgery) was one of those plastic and aluminum chairs which took up the whole shower. This stool is much smaller and looks so much more clean and modern and is just as stable. All in all we are very happy with this shower seat and look forward to years and years of use out of it.

          My wife and I were looking for a nice big bean bag for sitting in while video gaming or reading a book in the corner when we found this. This is by far the ultimate over-sized bean bag chair. I had a bean bag chair growing up but it was about 1/3 the size of this one and not near as comfortable. This one is very, very comfortable and perfect for long gaming sessions on the Xbox.
          When we went to put it all together we found that the product instructions were not that great. The process itself was fairly straight forward though. After opening the cover you remove the compressed foam from the plastic wrap and bag. Then insert it into the cover. It is better to have the cover opened first Read More
          My wife and I were looking for a nice big bean bag for sitting in while video gaming or reading a book in the corner when we found this.

This one is very, very comfortable and perfect for long gaming sessions on the Xbox.
          When we went to put it all together we found that the product instructions were not that great. The process itself was fairly straight forward though. After opening the cover you remove the compressed foam from the plastic wrap and bag. Then insert it into the cover. It is better to have the cover opened first before inserting the foam bag as it does leave trace amounts of foam fuzz on the outside cover surface if it comes in contact with it.
          We found the enclosed care instructions confusing in that it recommends that you prewash the cover before first use. The actual tag on the cover says NOT to wash. We ended up going with the tag on the cover that said not to wash. They did include one useful trick of using a bent paper clip to open and close the zipper on the cover which was perfect. It made it much easier to open and close especially after inserting the filler capsule.
          The filler capsule is made up of medium sized chunks of foam. It comes in a super compressed vacuum form. The foam expands over time in the cover. The instructions state that it can take up to 3 days for the foam to fully expand. Regular fluffing is recommended. The denseness of the foam supports your whole body when you sit on it. The foam puffs back up after you get up. The foam has an odor to it that takes a few days to gas off and go away.
          The bag itself is definitely large and takes a bit of heft to move around. It is very, very comfortable though. It does take up a bit of real estate. You don't realize how large this bean bag is until it's fully expanded then you step back and go "wow"!
          Our son immediately took it upon himself to fully utilize the new bean bag. He set up his laptop and headphones and started gaming on it right away. He said it was quite comfortable and he enjoyed using it.

          I just installed this Chamberlain Model C273 Smart Garage Opener on an insulated 2-car garage door. I was a little worried of how loud it was going to be since there is a bedroom located directly over the garage. All the chain driven garage door openers we have owned in the past have always been quite loud and I assumed this one was going to be no different. Boy was I wrong. This chain drive is just about as quiet as our belt driven one.

          I just installed this Chamberlain Model C273 Smart Garage Opener on an insulated 2-car garage door. I was a little worried of how loud it was going to be since there is a bedroom located directly over the garage. All the chain driven garage door openers we have owned in the past have always been quite loud and I assumed this one was going to be no different. Boy was I wrong. This chain drive is just about as quiet as our belt driven one.
          This Chamberlain garage door opener has an app that you can download so that you can open and close the door remotely via your cell phone. You also get a text anytime the garage door is opened or closed which is fantastic. I also like that there is a little picture on the app that shows whether you garage door is open or closed. This is great for those moments when you leave the house and can't remember if you closed the garage door or not. Now all you have to do is open the app and verify the picture showing it is closed.
          This opener comes with (1) 3-button remote, (1) wall control, (2) safety sensors & battery backup. Battery backup is now mandatory in California per SB-969 due to all the recent wildfires. There were several people who were trapped in their garages with no power to their openers during the wildfires so having a battery backup is now mandatory. The battery is said to last between one to two years so you will have to replace it periodically but that is a small price to pay for safety.
          This opener comes with a 6 year warranty on the motor and a 1 year warranty on the chain. I've had several Chamberlain garage door openers over the years in all the different homes we have owned and they have been very, very reliable. I don't foresee this one being any different.
          The instructions for installing this opener were fantastic. It took about one hour to install since I was able to use the old mounting bracket for attaching the motor to. There are also YouTube videos people have posted that can help with installation if you are a more visual person.
          All in all we are very, very happy with our new Chamberlain opener. It is pretty cool that even garage door openers now have tech added to them. It makes a big difference. If this opener is anything like all our previous Chamberlain openers we will get years and years of use out of it. It is not uncommon for these openers to last 20 years or longer. Read Less

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.

          Hi,
          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.
