          Like most homes I have a large amount of electronics, chargers and cables through out my home. I am always looking for a way to neatly manage the cords. Initially I zip tied the cords but then they are hard to unattach and adjust. These hook and loop straps work great. The are solidly constructed and grip easily to bind cables and items together. They area easily adjustable and easily pull apart again similar to fine velcro. This variety pack has 20 short and 20 long straps included. I was so impressed I used the longer straps to organize larger cable s and they worked great. They have a large variety of sizes and to try and I will certainly be purchasing more in the future.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Easy to Move, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy

          The Razor-Back drain spade is designed for digging narrow trenches and cleaning out previously-dug ditches. It is designed with a narrow, heavy-gauge closed blade, so you can also use this tool to transplant live trees and shrubs. The forward turned-step provides secure foot placement. It features a closed-back steel blade to prevent dirt buildup. This shovel also includes a 9 in. socket and a 48 in. ash wood handle, a long-reaching handle to reduce back pain and muscle fatigue while digging in tight spaces.

          I use a drain spade for hard and landscaping projects around my home. This spade works great. It is a very well made spade, manufactured with high quality materials. The long handle is strong and made from solid hardwood. The all metal spade is attached with large rivets and constructed of very thick tempered metal and has very large, strong welds noted. The sharp tip made easy work of my landscape project and its high quality construction means I will be using it for jobs for a very long time. Pleased with this spade.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Clean, Great Quality, Strong

          I wanted to try to unplug form cable bill and add a digital antenna for my outdoor porch. I was skeptical that this antenna could deliver a clear signal but I was pleasantly surprised. I simply attached the antenna to the TV , plugged in the adapter and used the TV to scan for channels. I did this before I invested the time mounting the unit onto the wall of my house. I picked up about 20 channels in less than 5 minutes. The picture and sound are very crisp and clear, quite impressive. Once mounted the unit looks very attractive and was easy to mount with the included hardware.

          Create a welcoming, bright entryway or light up a dining table or kitchen island with the rustic charm of the Fairforest three-light chandelier. Three bulbs offering a soft welcoming glow perch on the fixture's center, embraced by the metal bands that create an open-cage design. The blend of Age Oak Wood and Matte Black finishes give the chandelier a rustic, antique style.

          I placed this chandelier in my kitchen area. The light looks very nice and it constructed of all metal and solidly built. The directions are awful and lack any real direction. If you have never installed a light you would not be able to accomplish the task following the enclosed directions. Also installation requires 2 people because 2 must hold the light while you attach the electrical. I was also disappointed there was no bulbs included so you can see in my pictures I simply had to add what was available. I also was not a fan of the fact that chain is only 6 inches long and then attaches to a pole into the light. There is 5 pole attachments that allow you to extend the light to suit your Read More

          I really like this set. I wanted to install wiring for security system and this set did great easily cut through a variety of wood depths but I have not had the opportunity to use it on metal yet. It is a great set for my home projects. the Teeth are large and sharp and make clean holes with attached to my Milwaukee drill. The variety of hole sizes and their quality construction should make this a well used set for my home projects.
          Pros: Accurate, Durable, Easy to Use, Strong
