          When regular locking pliers start to slip, you have to stop and open them, tighten and re-lock. With these you can tighten the red part while still locked. Even better, if you know a lot of grip is needed you can tighten these down before you start to strip the piece you're working on. These are a must have for any garage and I really like them. Great for small threaded piping jobs.
          Pros: strong grip, avoids stripping bolts

Complements the Tresham collection as well as a variety of styles from classic to modern. Color: White.

          This toilet has good styling and is comfortable. Installation is normal for a toilet. Good strong flush. The handle is on the side and easy to pull. The square base is very stable. It comes with a regular toilet seat. Not the soft close kind, but those always fail after a year and are thinner than a normal seat. We like this toilet in our master bathroom
          Pros: Comfortable, Looks Great

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This is a very low cost mount that secures to the wall with a variety of hardware that is provided. The risk, however, is the TV secures to the mount with two big hooks that work great, but then to keep the TV from lifting off the mount, you need to screw in two small set screws. These screws would work, but are nearly impossible to reach with a screwdriver. The angle is wrong and it's too far. This could be solved by longer screws, but they are pretty small and hard to find. I ended up screwing a piece of wood above the hooks and this worked to hold the TV in place and is not visible.
          I also found the screws used to secure the TV to the bracket were too long. They bottomed out in the TV Read More

          I am really happy with the performance of this vacancy sensor switch. I like that it is manual on like a regular switch, but will turn off when you leave the room. I put this in the kids closet since they are always leaving the light on. I actually had occupancy sensors when I first moved in, but they would only work with incandescent lights. This sensor works with both CFL and LED.
          I like that this only turns on when you push the switch. There is also a faint green led that makes it easy to see the switch in the dark.
          Check you wiring before buying since you need to have a neutral wire (white). Not all light switch boxes will have a neutral. If there is one in there it's because the Read More

          This is a good looking light for a more modern looking room. It's simple and sleek and would not draw attention. I am a big fan of the new LED light designs, this one has edge lighting, resulting in a even glow. The color and brightness are good. Since our house is not modern, it works great in our closet, proving efficient light and turns on to full brightness instantly.
          Pros: Looks Great, Very Bright, instant on to full brightness

          Answer: 
          The discharge is 2" female pipe thread. It also comes with an adapter that is 1.5" female pipe thread. You need a hose or pipe that is 1.5" or 2" male pipe thread on the end to connect. Also include a check valve.
          For electrical, it just plugs in, preferably to a GFI outlet.

          How do you adjust the float

          I bought a unit yesterday and installed. I have a 30" basin and this model was suggested. I ran the water to watch the pump operate and the water level gets to the inflow pipe level before turning on. Although there is no water backlash, I was wondering how and or if I can adjust the float to come on before the water level rises to the inflow pipe.

          Answer: 
          The float cord is clamped to the unit. It just hangs there so it's not adjustable. The water level needs to reach about 12" deep to start the pump and will pump it out to about 6" and then turn off.
