          The Tape Tearer is the only tape dispenser that can dispense any 2 inch tape, from masking and packing tape, to super tough duct tapes and backed tapes. The key is the adjustable spool that keeps the tape close against the cutter throughout the use of the whole roll, and gives the ability to dispense much larger rolls. The blade guard protects your hands and also helps place the tape onto the box or envelope.

          I have never found a wrapping tape dispenser that I totally liked and this one is the same. It doesn't cut the tape perfectly every time, nor is it easy to change rolls. I don't understand what the cord on the front is used for, but it is not in the way so I do not mind it being there. This unit is sturdy and solid and should last a long time. Which makes it better than some others I have used.
          Pros: Durable, High Quality, Sturdy

          The tape is very strong and can do everything that duct tape can. With the added benefit of being waterproof. Having just used the tape recently I cannot comment on its long term holding power. I gave a roll to a friend to fix a leaking radiator hose on his car it worked and now he is not going to replace his hose. I advised against it.He is just carrying the rest of the roll of tape around with him.

          I use mine on the end of my desk to provide supplemental lighting. It provides strong, white light, just what I was looking for. My desk has a thin top, so the clamp grips perfectly. It doesn't look elegant, more industrial than anything else, but it doesn't clash with anything else in my home office. I would say it looks minimalist. I am very happy with it.

          This is a novelty item that is purely decorative. If you want a distinctive look about your house, and don't mind taking the time to unscrew all of your cover plates (flat head screwdriver) around your house; and then installing these, the unseen plate uses Phillips head screws, and then you snap on the cover plates. In my opinion you either go all in and do your entire house or don't do it at all. The outside plates unsnap easily if you need to replace an underlying switch.
          Pros: Easy Installation, Nice Design, Stylish

          How do I keep the base from rotating?

          I'm trying to attach the Eva towel ring into the wood side of a cabinet. The black plastic mounting post has a single centered screw to attach it (it comes with a wall anchor which won't work in the cabinet); when I attach it with a bolt and nut, the entire base rotates when I hang a towel on the ring, or put any pressure on it at all. It won't take long for the bolt to unscrew itself from the nut.

          There are two additional holes in the post but they are smaller than the 8/32 bolt size of the center hole, and it looks like a bolt head would interfere with the attachment of the towel ring.

          How can I attach the base so it's solid to the cabinet and won't rotate?

          Screw the molly bolt tight to the wall and the base will not move.

          Does the ring part move or is it stationary?

          Answer: 
          It is a 3-way bulb meant to be used in a 3-way fixture. So by its very design you have a low light, medium light, and brightest setting. I would not use this style bulb with a dimmer switch. Use a single wattage bulb for that application.

          When I look up the name of the furniture it's a black finish and boast a sleigh bed. So I would like to know if that glue would work for that wood?

          I try to attach the picture of the bed, it wouldn't let me.. It would be the bottom part towards the food board, in the crack area.
          Would like to know as soon as possible.
          Thank you

          Answer: 
          As long as you can clamp the two pieces together until the glue has dried it should work. But do not use glue alone if the piece is load bearing and not just cosmetic. If it is a bed post, leg, or mattress support piece you should also drive a couple of nails or screws to hold the pieces together.
