          When using these clips on an electrical box you can install the box in a hollow drywall or block wall. Simply place an “old work clip” on each side of the electrical box, insert the box into the opening, screw down on the screw on the work clip and collapse the clip against the drywall or block wall. The ears at the top and bottom of the electrical box will hold the box from being drawn back into the hollow and firm against the drywall or block. I have used other devices like the switch box supports for holding the boxes in drywall but found these to be the easier to install.

          These stainless bar cabinet pulls are extremely well made. They provide an excellent look on my bathroom cabinets. They also can be used on kitchen cabinets and will provide an excellent look as well. The 5-1/16” dimension is not the total length of the cabinet pull. This dimension is the distant between the mounting holes. The actual cabinet pull is 7-1/2” in length. The cabinet pulls include 1” & 1-1/2” mounting screws for quick and easy installation for different door and drawer widths.

          I got these cabinet knobs to replace the knobs on the cabinets in my laundry room. They are very attractive and feel nice but are somewhat small. The knob measures 1-1/8” across the top and the height of the knob is 7/8”. This makes it hard to put your fingers between the door and the knob to open the cabinet. The knob is heavy and made of great quality. The knobs come with two sets of screws 1” and 1-1/2” for different door and drawer widths. I will keep the knobs for this project, however, I only wished they were larger.

          Peace of mind, all the time. The SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI tests itself even if you forget. Designed to meet the latest UL standard for auto-monitoring (self-test) our complete line of self-test GFCIs periodically conduct an automatic internal test to confirm that it can respond to a ground fault. With the slimmest profile on the market, the device allows for fast and easy installation, while Leviton's patented reset lockout mechanism prevents reset of the GFCI if it is not wired or operating correctly. The SmartlockPro Self-Test GFCI is the smart choice in ground fault circuit interrupter protection.

This enables you to walk with the reel in your hand while playing out the hose in the hose reel. I found this to be the easiest way of watering. I had read some other reviews about this product that had poor results. I have had the Aquabag water hose reel only a short time but it has functioned exactly as the manufacturer has stated without any problems whatsoever. Read Less

          This premium HDX replacement refrigerator water filter fits in place of GE Filter model MWF. Certified against NSF/ANSI 42, 53, 372, 401 & CSA B483.1 to reduce Lead, Cyst, 70+ VOC’s (Volatile Organic Chemicals), Pharmaceuticals, BPA, PFOA & PFOS as well as Chlorine taste and odor to ensure high quality and performance. This economical filter will deliver fresh, crisp, clean tasting water and ice cubes that you can trust for your family. Engineered with the power of 0.5 Micron coconut shell carbon block, this filter provides tremendous capacity to reduce impurities, sediment and rust that may be present in your drinking water.

These processes ensure that you are receiving the cleanest and best tasting water possible for you and your family. Easy DIY installation filter with a life capacity of 300 Gal. or 6 months, whichever precedes. Using this filter will replace 1500 water bottles reducing the amount of plastic waste in our landfills. This filter fits the following GE filter models: MWF, GWF, MWFA, GWFA, GWF06, Kenmore filter: 46-9991, Hotpoint filters: HWF, HWFA.

          I have installed this and water will no longer come out through the water and ice dispenser on the front of the door. I have held the water spigot open for an extended period of time thinking the filter had to fill up first but that didn't seem to to work either. I also reinstalled it and still the problem exists. What could be the problem?

          I replaced the GE MWF with this filter and found no problem. As soon as I installed the new filter I heard the water flowing. Make sure when you install the filter that you turn it a full 1/4 turn. You should then hear the water flowing into the filter. The only other thing is that it is the wrong replacement or is defective. Lastly did you remove the plug in the top of the new filter before installing Read More

          Answer: 
          I recommend that these closures be used on only kitchen cabinet doors. Hallway doors would be too heavy for this type of closure. It is made of plastic and I feel it would not be able to handle the force and weight of a hallway door.There are several door closers that Home Depot sells that are made for residential doors weighting 85 lb. to 140 lb.
