With a compact ultra-low-profile design, the Commodus fits snug to the ceiling for powerful air performance without sacrificing style or space in rooms with low ceilings. This large room ceiling fan features an LED light, preinstalled remote receiver for easy installation, and a wall control for easy fan speed and light dimming adjustments.

          The Casablanca Commodus low profile ceiling fan by Hunter is far superior to the builders model fan in my New house in The Villages. I installed the Casablanca myself following the instructions. This fan does not "hang". It is screwed tight to the ceiling bracket, thus it must be installed on a flat ceiling. It is extremely well balanced, it did not require any adjustment. The fan and light are assembled one piece at a time on the ceiling. The wall switch fit into the existing receptacle. The wall switch required two batteries that were included. There was not a true "remote" that I expected, only the wall switch. The reverse mode works well in our bedroom to equalize temperature .

          The GEARWRENCH ratcheting combination wrenches are the original patented ratcheting wrench. The ratcheting box end is designed to need as little as 5 to move fasteners versus 30 for standard wrenches. The wrenches are made from strong alloy steel with a bright, full polish chrome finish. The ratcheting box end features off-corner loading for a better grip on the fastener and reduces fastener rounding.

          Right out of the box the GearWrench is ready to work. This set of eight comes in a handy pouch to keep them organized. I have trouble mounting my bike rake with a screw in pin. I need to reach under the bumber to get to the hitch. The ratcheting GearWreach allows me to hook on to the 3/4 inch plan head once and either tighten or loosen. The "flex" option offsets the wrench while still allowing the ratchet to function. The wrench gives me the leverage I need to make the bike rack safe.
          Pros: All In One, Easy to Use, Strong

          Gone are the days of climbing up ladders to clean your gutters. Ideal for both commercial and residential applications, this Gutter Guard by Gutterglove keeps out leaves, pine needles, roof sand-grit and other debris from your gutter. The patented V-Bend Technology (VBT) design allows the system to filter rainwater more effectively than other gutter covers. There are no support mechanisms needed under this high performance VBT stainless steel micro-mesh gutter protection system. This allows 100% of the holes to filter rainwater coming down your roof and into your gutter.

          I looked at several "gutter guards" some of them looked like they would cause more problems than they would solve. The Gutterglove was easy to install in four foot sections that I could handle alone. My gutters were thirty years old, the Gutterglove system was flexible enough to work around the "rough edges.

          When marking a large jobsite, this large capacity chalk reel is a must-have. With the ability to hold 1 lb. of chalk, you will get more line snaps per fill. This chalk reel has rubber feet which allows the unit to sit upright for easy fill access. It also has a large fill opening to help reduce chalk spillage.

          The Dewalt 150 is the biggest chalk line I have ever worked with but also one of the smoothest to operate. This is a contractor grade tool and I am a DIY. I needed to layout an extension to my driveway to make a sitting area. This line put down enough chalk I could mark the grass, mulch and cement, then wash it off when I changed my mind. Now I feel confident to talk with a contractor. You do need to purchase powdered chalk. Eight ounces will work to start, it needs to be loose inside the reel.

          I have tool boxes and tool bags but I had never thought about a tool backpack. It makes sense. Not every job can be moved into the workshop. Tool bags and boxes require free hands to carry them. Now I can pre-pack the tools I need and carry them with my hands free. Ladders are easy to maneuver. Working in the attic is never pleasant but now I can take everything in one trip. The Tradesman Pro has 21 pockets plus pouches for small items. Everything you need for small jobs fits in the back pack which zips completely open for easy access.
          Pros: High Quality, Lots of Features, Sturdy
          Cons: a little heavy when loaded

          I have asphalt roof shingles:
          Both the front and back of each Gutter Guard length have a metal edge. The front edge is needed to attach to the front of the rain gutter. However, the back edge will lift the last asphalt roof shingle by some height that I believe is undesirable.

          Question: Can I cut off this unwanted back edge of the guard to allow the guard to slide under the asphalt shingle without lifting the shingle or does Gutter Guard make a guard that doesn't have that back edge that will lift the last roof shingle from its desired flat resting place???

          Answer: 
          Follow the directions and bend the back edge down over a two by four to a 90 degree. It springs back against the bottom edge of the shingle.

          Victor Solar Powered Sonic Spikes offers a poison-free way to drive away moles, gophers. Every 30-seconds, sonic pulses penetrate the soil, emitting a penetrating sound that irritates moles and gophers, which are virtually blind and extremely sensitive to sound and vibrations. This method encourages moles to leave the property and continues to discourage return visits. No batteries are required to operate the waterproof solar spike. A single solar charge will last up to 5-days. The spike is built with a mow-over design and safe to use around pets. Allow 7-days to 14-days before moles and gophers start to move away from the area.
