          This tent sets up really easy. You just unroll and unfold it, grab the main support, and pull the strings to pull and lock the two pieces together. Doing this pulls tight all of the poles and literally pops the tent up. To take it down you just pull the two pieces apart, which takes bit of force, and then the poles fold in and you can roll it back up. Once rolled up, it fits nicely into the carrying bag.
          The tent can easily fit two people sitting in it, even with beach/camping chairs. The two screen windows have flaps that can velcro closed or role up and secure. The walls are thin nylon really only meant to provide shade and wind protection. The floor is a more durable tarp-like material.

The walls are thin nylon really only meant to provide shade and wind protection. The floor is a more durable tarp-like material. There are two long, flat pouches on the inside for holding things like keys and phones.
          It has webbing loops on the outside and comes with stakes for securing it down. The stakes are pretty small and I think strong winds would pull them out of the sand. However, there are also two pouches sewn onto the outside bottom on either side of it. You could fill these with sand or set something heavy on them and it would make it pretty secure from wind.
          Its light, sets up quick and easy, and is plenty big for two people.

          This officially licensed nine-piece knife set will have you cutting like the pros. Like those used on Bravo's top-rated Top Chef program, these knives feature an ice-tempered stainless steel blade with precision cut sharpened cutting edge, hollow ground to reduce sticking and a full steel handle with seamless bonded and polished bolsters. Includes wood block.

          This is a very good quality set of knives. They arrived in good condition and are very sharp. The handles are comfortable and the knives well balanced. I can't speak to how long they hold their edge, but I periodically sharpen my knives anyway. It has a good variety with the santoku, chef, pairing, and bread knives. I like that the handle sizes are consistent such that the small pairing knife still has a good size handle. The knives and block are attractive and look good on the counter. The kitchen shears are a little extra versatile with a bottle opener and prying edge.

          These are elastic straps that loop through their buckle, cinch around something, and use velcro to hold. The straps are very heavy duty and have good elasticity. The buckle is a good hard plastic and looks like it would not break easily. The hook patch of the velcro is big enough that it holds well even under a lot of tension. Its a nice and simple design for keeping things organized in the garage or car.
          The 8-pack includes 6", 9", 12", and 18", two of each length.
          Pros: Sturdy

          This is a descent looking rug, though I could call it more of a mat because of its fabric. I think the word "linen" in the name misleading. It's made of olefin, which is polypropylene. This is not as attractive as a natural fabric, but it is much more durable, stain, and water resistant. The underside is rubber so it has really good grip and doesn't slide on hard surfaces at all. It's easy enough to vacuum, but you can also throw it in a front loading washer. It seems pretty durable and should hold up to traffic well.

          This is a very nice and complete tool set. Its the only one I've ever had that comes with 3 ratchets (1/4, 3/8, and 1/2). It really covers most needs as it has a good complement of both SAE and metric sockets. It has a good number of deep sockets and extension bars, combination wrenches, SAE and metric hex keys, and a screw driver with various bits. The ratchets are pretty standard - easy to lock and remove sockets and switch rotation. I also like that the stamped-on size labels are larger compared to other sets I've seen - this makes it much easier to read. That alone makes this the first set I will pull out when needed.

          The case is nice and the only complaint would have about it, is that you can't lock it. There is a hole that you could pass a wire through, but it is way too small for a padlock.

          Up the stakes and change how you feel about entertainment. Add a new level of volume to your TV with the MSB33 Soundbar Mount. The MSB33 is an ultra-low-profile soundbar mount that can handle most soundbars weighing up to 13lbs. Individually adjustable, unique universal brackets come standard to give a wide range of compatibility with various TV brands. For guaranteed compatibility cross compare your VESA pattern with the one found here. If these two numbers match or if your VESA pattern falls between them, you are ready to rock. Quality steel covered in a sleek black matte finish ensures a clean look that compliments any entertainment set up. Individually adjustable arms allow for versatility, giving the option to mount the soundbar above or below the TV depending on your needs. Our mounts are stress and pressure tested with four times their recommended weight limits, guaranteeing that our mounts will never bend or snap under pressure. Included in the box is an easy to understand user manual with images that demonstrate every step needed. There are also multiple screw sizes included to ensure compatibility with as many TV brands as possible.

          Answer: 
          Yes. Its actually easier if there is no other wall mount already on the TV. If the TV's legs are in the way on the bottom, then you can mount it to the top of the TV.

          Answer: 
          I don't think so. The top shelf has pre-installed caps where you would put the posts from another shelf. And the bottom shelf has feet instead of holes to accommodate posts below them. Even if you did snap off the top caps, and the posts fit in, you would loose one shelf and end up with 5.
