          This is the cutest toy. I ordered it because I thought my boys would get a kick out of having a chainsaw that looked and sounded like mine. Not only does it look and sound like a (mini) chainsaw, but it operates like one (except for the actual cutting!). It’s good training for safety with power tools. First you need to use the metal switch to turn on the saw, then pull the pull cord to start it (and it will make an engine starting noise), then the orange safety button must be held down before pressing the button to get the chain moving on the saw part. It sounds a little complicated but even my three year old got the hang of it after one demonstration. My boys have loved playing with it and Read More

          These straps are very useful for an endless amount of applications. So far I’ve used them for tools, computer cables, loose string, and even on my kids’ toys. At first I thought they were going to be too small for my needs, but then I realized they stretch quite a bit, so they’ve fit around everything I’ve tried so far. They are a simple way to keep things stored neatly. Two thumbs up.
          Pros: Nice Design

          Scalloped No-Dig Landscape Edging by ProFlex gives your landscaping a charming, decorative look with a wood grain texture. Flexible enough to accommodate any landscape design, even tree rings, the patented No-Dig L-shape eliminates damage from digging into tree and plant roots. The 2 in. H edging is strong enough to retain bedding materials, but is easy to cut to the length you need. Color: Black.

          This edging system is simple in design and very effective. We have a section of mulch immediately adjacent to a short sidewalk and the mulch is constantly spilling onto the sidewalk. It is annoying and unsightly. This simple solution was easy to install and does a great job holding the mulch back. I was concerned it was going to be flimsy, but it is thick, sturdy plastic. I am very happy with this product.

          This sofa came packaged nicely and was easy to take out all the parts. It came in four large parts (the seat, two arm rests, and the back rest) in addition to the two cushions. It took under thirty minutes to assemble. The large parts come with metal attachments on them that slide into each other. The directions recommend two adults to assemble, and I did need the help of another adult to get the back piece on because it was difficult to slide the metal parts in for that piece. After you connect the large parts with the metal sliding mechanisms, you screw in a few bolts and Velcro on the cushions and you’re done! The sofa looks really nice.

It’s a soft fabric and a nice deep gray color. The back is not the most comfortable, but it’s not uncomfortable. A couple pillows will help with that. I had originally intended this love seat for my office but with our high ceilings and windows, it looked a little too low. It’s now in our bedroom and looks perfect. Read Less

          This new innovation makes securing loads quicker and easier and is considered one of the biggest breakthroughs in the transport industry for decades. This will be the best ratchet you will ever own. The side loading functionality makes webbing easier to load and faster to release. The extended molded grip handle and rubber release lever are ergonomically correct and provide a lot more room for your hand while operating the ratchet. Gears are located on either side of the housing to make for smoother ratcheting compared to standard ratchets. Included with Zinc plated finish and Keeper Hi-Test webbing. Perfect for all applications. The 1.25 in. and 1.5 in. versions are ideal for tradesmen, serious Do it yourself and Sportspersons. The 2 in. versions are ideal for the freight industry, commercial users and individuals securing heavy loads. Color: Black.

          These side loading ratchet straps are unlike anything I’ve ever used before. It took me a while to really get the hang of it but once I did I ended up really liking them. The side loading aspect makes them quicker to use, and I really like the large handle and easy to use release lever. These straps are now stored in my pickup truck and will be my go-to straps.

          I have several 90 degree turns with my gutters. Do I have to cut each end at a 45 degree angle? Or do they recommend just cutting them straight and butting the ends together?

          Answer: 
          For outside corners, the instructions say to cut only one (the top overlapping piece) at a 45° angle. No 45° cuts are necessary for inside corners, just some trimming to properly make the butt joint
