          The Lightshow 61 Effects Remote Controlled Christmas Snowflake Projector is a great way to ramp up your home's Christmas holiday spirit. It is easy to set up, comes with every thing you need to get started and if you ask me the best feature is its remote control unit (no venturing out into the cold to turn on, change the display or turn the device off). It takes longer to unpack the box and peek at the instructions than it does to set it up - the only real challenge (about 20 seconds) was installing the included battery in the remote.

It takes longer to unpack the box and peek at the instructions than it does to set it up - the only real challenge (about 20 seconds) was installing the included battery in the remote. Operation is simple with the three button remote - the big round button allows you to scroll through the colors (white, green, red and blue) and color combinations; the middle button lets you choose the "effects"; and the small square outside button is the on/off switch. The projector itself is relatively stout and should hold up well under most winter conditions. It is mounted to a combination tri-pod/stake device that could be beefier - as a tri-pod it seems a tad wobbly (but effective) and if you set the base up a stake I feel it should be a couple of inches longer. I would have rated it five stars if the stake design was more heavy duty. Can't wait for the holidays Read Less

          Our StyleWell backless counter stools pair a Rustic Farmhouse wood seat with a Modern metal base for a look that transcends the ordinary. The seat is carved for hours of seated comfort at a kitchen island or bar. Color: White/Natural.

          While I am by no means a ceiling fan authority I have installed enough of these things to know which ones are good ones and which ones are not so much. The Mickelson 52" Integrated LED Light Indoor Brushed Nickel Dual Mount Ceiling Fan by Aire falls into the first category. The finishes and fit are excellent - no exposed casting burs or flash on any of the metal parts, no sketchy paint coverage nor any issues with sub standard screws or hole threads. The box comes with everything you need (and expect) like the battery for the remote, extra fasteners in case you lose one, a small blade balancing kit and best of all great instructions.

Swapping out an old tired looking Hunter took less than 45 minutes including rounding up everything I needed (step ladder, phillips head screw driver and needle nose pliers), getting a good handle on the instructions, installation and cleanup. The only real issues I had were with the somewhat anemic light (maybe as bright as a single 60 watt incandescent bulb) and the clunky style of the art deco-ish fan blade mounts. They're growing on me though. The wife is pleased with it and that is pretty much all that matters. Read Less

          The SmartCode 955 Commercial Grade touchpad electronic deadbolt lever is a 1-touch locking motorized deadbolt. With your personalized code, you can enter your home with the convenience of keyless entry and the back-lit keypad provides increased visibility. SmartCode 955 is easy to install, program and use, and operates on one 9 Volt battery. It also features SmartKey Security as the back-up keyway. This entry lever can be locked or unlocked by using the keypad or key from the outside as well as the turn button from the inside. The crisp, clean appearance of the Satin Nickel finish adds to the overall look of the product and brings a modern feel.

          Since we're having a serious do nothing day courtesy of Hurricane Dorian I figured my downtime would be well spent checking off some of my indoor to-do list items. I just finished installing The Kwikset 955 Smartcode Pembroke Door Lever on our back door. This thing is way cool! It has a 10 digit lighted keypad that can be easily custom programmed with your own four to eight number pass code. A 3 year (hopefully it will last that long) battery is included to power the electronics as well as the motorized deadbolt.

Nice if you wish to have this lock keyed to match another existing one or if you want to change keys at down the road for security reasons.
          The entire assembly appears to be very stout and well made. The start to finish installation process including getting a handle on the instructions and programming the lock cylinder in my existing door took about a half hour with just a medium sized phillips head screwdriver. The instructions were clear and easy to wrap my head around. This deadbolt door latch unit provides many options for allowing entry without a key (and it is very easy to add or delete a new code for weekend visitors or, say a package delivery). Read Less

          I ordered the Geeni High Speed USB Charger Outlet with Voice Control after seeing one at an open house in down the street. My wife thought it would be a great upgrade for the kitchen counter receptacle we use for charging tablets and phones as well as plugging in the electronic timer we use to control a radio we play when we are away on trips. Unfortunately it is to big (see photo) for any of the electrical boxes along the kitchen counter or in my office or in the family room. The house electrical system was "upgraded" over 30 years ago and many of the switches and outlets have those brown bakelite j-boxes. Since the kitchen walls are all subway tile swapping the bakelite box for a bigger Read More

Since the kitchen walls are all subway tile swapping the bakelite box for a bigger old work box is a major hassle. .
          The outlet itself very stout and well designed with an excellent wire fastening setup. It will fit just barely into a standard new work box but probably not fit if it is going on a 20 amp circuit with 12 ga wire. I will try to update this review once I install a bigger box in one of the other suitable locations. Read Less

          Answer: 
          Depending on the pitch of your roof you should be able to adjust the tubing angle by rotating the tubing at the joints. If your ceiling pitch matches the roof pitch only minor adjustment will be needed (other than cutting to shorten the tube run)
