          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.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, High Quality, Sturdy

          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.
          Pros: Eco-Friendly, Functional, Good Size & Weight, High Quality of Material, Nice Design, Very Bright

          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

          You can feel the quality and durability when you hold the heavyweight, metal flow control nozzle. The nozzle is designed to fit comfortably in the hand with soft rubber grips where you need them. Patterns are selected with a twist of the front turret while on, off and flow rate are easily controlled with one thumb lever.

          Does the nozzle have brass fittings, so it won't leak

          Answer: 
          No brass fittings. The threads are cast internal to the handle with an adequate flat on the inside to provide a good seat for the included rubber washer that seals tightly to the male hose fitting.
