          This heavy-duty aluminum box level is a high quality well-constructed level.
          The center bubble is easy to read which makes it very accurate. It is wide and fits between the lines exactly. It has large comfortable rubberized hand grips. I like the rare earth magnets on the bottom of the level. It works great when working with metal 2x4’s and metal corner bead. It is strong and tough, made well, and should last a long time. I recently used this level when I was installing a metal dryer vent. It made it pretty easy to insure that the vent was level. I have used other levels with magnets before but this one is superior. I highly recommend it.

          The SimpleAir Pleated Air Filter is the toughest filter available. Made with high-grade filter media and over-molded with a polymer frame, creating a single part filter that will not come apart. This advanced filter design is completely waterproof and mold and mildew resistant.

          I live in Southwest FL, where pollen and every other allergen in the world are plentiful. Living in the south our air conditioners work overtime due to the heat and so far I have been very pleased with our SimpleAir Pleated Filter.I’m allergic to dust, ragweed & pollen which requires me to clean and /or replace our air conditioner filters quite often. We have our ac system serviced twice a year. In between the service I either clean or replace the filters when needed. Started using this pleated filter about a month ago, replacing one of the cheaper filters that come in a roll and you cut to size. While the allergies aren't gone, they don't bother us inside the house nearly as much anymore. Read More

My wife has also noticed much less dust under the bed and on top of the furniture. Excellently made and easy to store. Due to the pleated design you can stack one filter on top of the next thereby taking less space. Read Less

          Certain floor cleaning liquids can damage beautiful hardwood and laminate floors.

The floor cleaner restores the shine to varnish, acrylic and polyurethane-finished floors, molding, cabinet doors and other wood surfaces. The Squeeze & Mix bottle eliminates the need for measuring cups and funnels. Zep Hardwood and Laminate Floor Cleaner is easy to use simply spray and mop.

          I used this product on my natural wood floor in my family room which is in a high traffic area. It performed well. You will need to use some elbow grease to get the scuff marks off but they eventually come off. I also have an area on the floor that is somewhat faded and the cleaner did restore some of the shine. I would recommend this product as long as you are not looking for a total rejuvenation of your wood flooring.
          I also used this product to clean my wood baseboards and it worked well.

          The Arnold Siphon Pump is the perfect tool to drain the oil and gas in your outdoor power equipment. In a few quick and easy steps, you can prepare your equipment for off season storage, or just transfer gas from one machine to another. Once you're finished, dissemble the pump for easy cleaning.

          This is an inexpensively built pump. The larger hoses are permanently bent because of the cheap material used, making it difficult to have them stay where you want them. The pump is okay but the hoses are coiled up so tightly in the packaging that they keep coiling up on themselves. I tried placing them in hot water to straighten them out and to remove the kinks with little success. I haven’t used it to transfer gas or oil from a tank to a container as yet. I found it work well to drain water from a toilet either when changing parts in the tank or from the bowl before replacing the toilet.

          This Best trylon brush is made with a unique proprietary blend of ingredients which allows it to pick up and release more paint. It performs great in high heat and humidity. It offers better leveling with today's heavy-bodied, fast drying, low/no VOC paints.

          I'm not a professional painter, but do all my own home painting. I've been using other brands of brushes for many years and have been happy with their performance. However, after using the Diamond Pro oval 2- 1/2 inch angled brush I was pleasantly surprised. The angled brush allows you to cut-in, paint in cramped quarters, or paint on angles effectively. I like the way the brush picks up and holds more paint than most, which saves time. I like the feel of the oval brush in my hand. This brush leaves a nice, even paint distribution. I highly recommend it.

          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.
           
          With the Husky Heavy Duty Digital Tire Inflation Tool, filling tires with an air compressor has never been so easy. This lightweight aluminum tool is perfect for inflating ATV, bicycle, car, motorcycle, truck, tractor, and trailer tires. It is crush resistant and even withstands being run over by a tractor trailer. A battery operated digital gauge and a built-in relief value help reduce pressure in over-inflated tires. The tire inflation tool swivels a full 360 and has a dual head air chuck for easy filling of tires. You can check your tire pressure without a compressor; simply attach the chuck to your tire for a digital reading from 0 - 150 psi. The LED display shows PSI, Kpa, Bar, and Kgf/cm2 so you can get an accurate reading in multiple international air pressure measurements. The lighted display screen automatically shuts off after 1 minute of inactivity to preserve battery life. Its slim design easily fits in a tool box drawer. The Husky Heavy Duty Digital Tire Inflation Tool is a perfect accessory for your garage or vehicle.

          Answer: 
          No that option is not offered on this tire inflator. If you exceed the desired air pressure level release the inflation lever and read the pressure in the LCD display. If the pressure is higher than desired, press the air release valve to bleed air from the tire.
