          The Klein Tools tape measure has some features that make it stand out among the dozens (or maybe hundreds) of choices.
          The extra blade width provides for a very long reach without buckling. The packaging claims a 13 foot standout, although mine maxed out just short of 12 feet. Still, that's quite a bit better than my other tape measure which barely gets out to 7 feet.
          The blade is coated with nylon to help resist scratches and rust and it has large easy to read numbers printed on both sides. There is a magnetic double hook on the end, helpful for measuring conduit / pipe. It has two blade brakes, one on the front above the blade which can also a lock it, and one on the bottom which Read More

          It seems hard to imagine how something that's been around as long ratchet sets could still be improved, but I think this Crescent set manages to do just that. The most notable improvement is the handle - rounded and tapered for a comfortable grip (as opposed to my old one that has a rectangular handle) so when you really need to crank down on something, you won't have any edges to dig into your fingers.
          The sockets fit securely and of course, you can use any other 1/2 sockets you might already have. The large release button is easy to push so attaching / removing sockets is a quick glitch-free process. Socket size is etched in large enough numbers to be easily legible with normal Read More

Socket size is etched in large enough numbers to be easily legible with normal eyesight in normal lighting, so no more squinting or holding them under a bright light to see what size it is.
          As a bonus, the packaging doubles as a tool holder you can mount on the wall so you don't end up dropping sockets in a drawer and having to search for them later. Read Less

          This Commercial Electric LED flush mount has a great transitional design with beautifully constructed clean lines. Finished in White, the low profile design makes it a great addition to any room. The frosted acrylic lens provides pure even illumination. With the easy to install clip-in mounting bracket installation is quick and easy.

          These fixtures are very easy to install in a standard ceiling box. Simply remove the old fixture and mounting bracket, attach the new bracket, connect the wires and snap the light into the bracket.
          The fixtures snug right up to the ceiling and the rounded lens provides an even, soft white light. I used them to replace some old glass globe fixtures in bedroom closet. They took just a few minutes to install, look much better than those old globes, and use only 15 watts. The fixtures are dimmable, but I don't plan to put dimmer switches in the closets.
          They're a quick and inexpensive project anywhere you need to update your lighting.
          Pros: Looks Great, Easy Installation

          I recently replaced the old chrome and shiny brass faucet in our guest bathroom with a new brushed nickel faucet, and wanted to replace the toilet paper holder as well. Although the finish on this roll holder is stainless steel, as far I can tell it's a perfect match for the brushed nickel.
          Installation took maybe 15 minutes. Although it was exactly the same width as the old one, the mounting brackets were smaller. I used the existing lower drywall anchors on each side for the new brackets, so just needed to put in one new upper anchor for each side. (the package includes four anchors and screws, as well as a mounting template printed on the instructions). It can be a little tedious Read More

It can be a little tedious getting the tiny set screws in to attach the arms to the wall brackets, but once done everything is held very securely in place.
          The Windemere toilet paper holder was a super easy, very inexpensive upgrade, and now all the fixtures in that bathroom - faucet, towel holder, and finally, the toilet paper holder - all match. Read Less

          The Glacier Bay Springbrook 4 in. Centerset 2-Handle Bathroom Faucet in Chrome finish is a transitional high-end look that will complement a variety of bathroom or powder room decor. The 2-handle design with ceramic disc valves gives you a drip free performance and precise control over water temperature and flow. WaterSense certified, this faucet has a 1.2 GPM rate to help reduce water use.

          The review is for the chrome Glacier Bay/ Springbrook faucet, identical to the brushed nickel version I also reviewed except for the finish. These are very solid feeling faucets, they look great, and are exceptionally easy to install. Once you remove your old faucet, just drop the new one into position and tighten up the plastic nuts that snug it up to the counter-top. Install the water supply lines (not included, you can re-use your old ones if they're not too old) and the faucet is ready to go.
          The best part of the installation process was the push / pop-up drain. No more clunky linkages under the sink or trying to work around water valves and supply lines that always seem to be in the Read More

No more clunky linkages under the sink or trying to work around water valves and supply lines that always seem to be in the way. You drop this assembly in the drain hole, make the connection to the existing drain trap, then tighten up the collar (as tight as you can by hand) to secure the drain assembly and squeeze those rubber gaskets watertight. No plumber's putty, no silicon - the gaskets seal it tight. And that's it. Push on the drain to close it, push again to open it. Read Less

          If the exhaust opening on the back of the unit is 6", this hose will fit.

          Answer: 
          For that distance you can buy a 25' length of insulated flexible duct (at Home Depot). It's intended for use as attic ductwork, but it will work, and it insulates much better than the flexible exhaust hose.

          The 15 inches may refer to the box it comes in; the installed fixture is about 1.5" below the ceiling and exactly 13" square.
