          I've used these before and just ordered some of these in both genders but these are too late to help me this year. I'm finished with my lights for this year. But I did order some of each male and female to have for next year since I end up doing some new things each year and these are a good deal compared to other sources I have used (and I shopped around a lot for them). Had HD not waited so long to stock them I'd have bought the ones I used this year here also (another 600 or so). I've also tried the heavier SPT2 ones from other places and I've come back to SPT1 just because it is so much easier to work with. It saves a lot of time when you are doing hundreds of ends.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Easy to Install, good value/price
          Cons: stocked too late in the year

          I agree whole heartedly with the other reviewer about it being a mistake to not have these now. I've been buying hundreds of each for several years. I'd been watching for them to come in stock this year for some time. I used a lot of them this year too (about 600 total of male&female) . I just bought them from someone other than HD for a little more money. It's a shame they no longer have these. After this year I won't even be looking here for them. I need a reliable source I can order from well before the holiday to allow me plenty of prep and build time for Christmas. I'd have bought more while they had them and stockpiled if I knew they were going away.
          Pros: good value
          Cons: no longer available here

          A heavy duty wreath/garland storage bag with handles. The 48 in. by 48 in. by 4 in. dimensions can easily fit any 9 ft. garland strand and it can store any decorated wreath up to 48 in. in size. Zips open for easy access and the handles make this a convenient way to store your product year after year.

          I've had this bag for 3 years now. Still in good shape and holding up well this year when I pulled it out. Stores a large heavy wreath well. I have mine stored in a storage building with a/c so it's not in a harsh environment so I can't say how it would hold up to that but I keep it hanging by the handles on a large S-Hook on the back of a Gladiator shelf unit and I see no issues. The wreath in it is pretty heavy with a 100 ct string of C9 lights on it (don't take them off). Just put it up for the year and it stored well. I had some issues in the building with high humidity earlier in the year but this thing seems to have protected the wreath from that and there are no issues from that. If I Read More

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          Had one from last year. Just bought 2 more and one leaks on my patio right off the bat. Too much trouble to unpot large plant and take back plus this was the last they had available. Web page shows in store but that is wrong. Out of stock. Too bad. Like the size and design but quality control is lacking.
          Pros: Vibrant Color, Stylish, good large size, lighter than concrete
          Cons: quality issues

          Does it come in other sizes ? I've been using the 12 inch one for about 6 months now and am very happy with the way it cooks and how well it is holding up to practically daily use. I would not mind buying a couple smaller ones as well like say a 10 inch and an 8 inch.
           
          The Storehouse mailbox can easily be called a powerhouse when it comes to storing large volumes of mail. This extra-large mailbox was designed to fit the newest USPS Standard 7C regulation, and is generously sized to meet the increase of large parcel deliveries. Large boxes will no longer be left conspicuously at your door for potential damage or vandalism. The Storehouse has a wide mail delivery opening measuring 7.24 in. tall x 13.44 in. wide to easily accept multiple parcel box deliveries along with daily mail. In addition to its impressive storage capacity, this mailbox is constructed from heavy-duty gauge galvanized steel and protected with a powder-coat finish for lasting durability against rust, and impacts. The Storehouse also comes fully assembled with pre-drilled bottom mounting holes. Mounting hardware is sold separately.

          I don't really have much of a question just an amusing observation to pass along and since you can't modify reviews here it is.
          I put this up a week ago and it is indeed really nice - large, solid, well finished and easy to open and close. Piece of cake to mount.
          Today I had a post-it note left in the box with the days mail from the mail carrier lady. It said she loves this box !
          It was kind of funny to see and I'm glad she likes it too. Obviously she appreciates a smooth opening and closing box.
          I guess if you have to open and close them all day that would not go unnoticed. some certainly require more effort.

          To make this a question and thus kosher to put here I ask the populace...
          Has anyone else had a compliment from the mail carrier ?
          I'm just curious.

          Answer: 
          Depends on what bulbs you use. If you use incandescent or dimmable LED bulbs then yes. I just used non-dimmable 100W equivalent LED bulbs because they were about 1/3 the price of dimmable LED bulbs. If you want dimmable make sure they say they are on the box. It will be easy to tell from the price. They cost a good deal more.

          Yes. There is a swivel on the base of the rod at the mounting plate. It just swivels on one axis so you woudl have to line it up with the slope correctly but that is clearly what it is made for.
