          The Commercial Electric ultra slim recessed lighting kits are the recessed lights of the future. Not only is each fixture is designed specifically for small spaces where height clearance is limited such as beams or ductwork, you can change the color temperature with a flick of a button. The integrated color changing switch is located on the cable so you can choose between a 3000, 4000 or 5000K temperature to best suit your needs. 3000K is perfect for relaxing, 4000K is the ideal choice for everyday affairs and 5000K is great for task lighting in a basement, hallway or work area. ENERGY STAR certified and insulation contact rated for direct contact with insulation, these lights won't overheat, do not require a bulky can and will last for years to come - 50 000 hours or approximately 34 years if used for 4 hours per day to be exact. Wet rated and certified airtight, this 6 in. kit is perfect for your bathroom, drop ceilings, outdoor soffits, larger spaces and all general lighting applications. The smooth baffle is designed to absorb excess light and reduce glare significantly - quintessential for the glasses wearers in your home.

          The installation of this light is the easiest light I have ever installed. I also like the idea of being able to switch between Daylight, bright light and soft light.

          GearWrench Open End ratcheting wrenches need as little as 5-Degree to move the fastener as opposed to 30-Degree for standard box end wrenches. Open end ratcheting allows ratcheting of nuts and bolts without removing the wrench from the fastener, making jobs faster and easier. The box end features improved strength from GearWrench Surface Drive technology and at the same time, reduces fastener rounding. These ratcheting wrenches are made from premium alloy steel for a precision, long lasting tool.

          HDX box sealing tape is a value oriented choice for sealing shipping, moving, and storage cartons. Tape rolls will hold well in cold and hot humid temperatures. This 2-pack is great for refilling tape dispensers and bigger projects.

          HDX shipping packaging tape is an excellent choice for sealing shipping, moving, and storage cartons. Tape rolls hold well in cold and hot humid temperatures. This 2-pack can be used in tape dispensers. Each roll can tape up to 20 medium boxes. Each tape is 1.88 inches wide x 55 yards long. Besides using this tape for sealing boxes I found it excellent for attaching labels to the packages that I have sealed.
          Pros: Easy to Use, High Quality, Sturdy

          Do I have to defrost this every few months? The manual says so but I thought this was a frost free model.

          is it possible to see the energy guide that should be on the freezer somewhere (In store) I can't find any info re energy use except that it is energystar. Would like to see how much difference in energy usage compared to a new freezer that isn't energystar. Thanks!!

          Answer: 
          I looked thought out the Owner's Manual but could not find anything on the energy guide of this appliance. If it was on the door when delivered it we would have removed it. I can only suggest you contact GE customer relations. GEAppliances.com/ge/service-and-support/contact.htm
           
          Crack-Tape repairs difficult cracks on flat surfaces and corners. Ten times stronger than paper tape, the tape repairs stress cracks and cracks due to truss uplifts. Crack-Tape cuts easily with a utility knife or scissors, but also resists blisters, tears, shrinkage, and wrinkles. Manufactured from Strait-Flex's patented composite material, it can be used for finishing drywall in high humidity applications. To apply measure and cut to length, then fold in half for corners. Apply all-purpose compound to surface or corner. Press Crack-Tape into the wet compound, adjust to create a straight line, and wipe down with a taping knife. A second coat can be applied immediately. Let dry. Apply a light skim coat, let dry, and sand.

          Answer: 
          I don't believe any drywall tape will be good on a sagging ceiling. This tape is excellent for ceilings where cracks keep on reappearing. I suggest that you use additional sheet rock screws to secure the wall board to the ceiling joists. Once the ceiling is secure I would use this crack tape.
