          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

          AGT 3-piece matching luggage in navy blue. They are handsome to look at, have an excellent handle, are all expandable if needed to add extra space for the souvenirs you buy while on travel, have TSA approved locks built into the 2 larger suitcases, light weight, and all have easy rolling spinner wheels. I have not used hard sided luggage for many years but I am looking forward to future travels with this luggage.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Lots of Features, Nice Design

          This is one of the most complete impact driver sets on the market. I mostly use the square drive and Philips drivers, but you have to have on hand all of these drivers for when you come across the occasional odd bolt or screw. I only keep impact rated drivers and bits so I can interchange them when I use my impact driver or my drill. I have used the shockwave line for many years and they have proven themselves to be reliable and durable.

          Strong, rugged, and durable best describes the quality of these versatile tools. The finish is excellent and I expect these to resist rust for many years even in the humid conditions I live in south west Florida. There are 10 different locking pliers in this set but I get the most use from the needle nose, square jaw, and the round jaw. Like many tool sets when you need the odd shaped one you have to have it on hand. So having the complete set is a must.

          A well built small parts organizer. I have many others but without the nice handle that this one has.The handle makes it much easier to take to the job instead of balancing one without a handle. I also have the 17-compartment divided parts organizer for larger screws, bolts and other parts. I will be buying more to replace my storage containers without handles soon.

          Inside the case is a reference to an accessory keyed chuck adapter that will allow use of any round bit. It is the only solution.

          ECOSMART 75-Watt Equivalent PAR30 Dimmable Energy Star Flood LED Light Bulb Daylight (2-Pack)
          The EcoSmart PAR30 9.5-Watt LED Light Bulb can be used to replace any PAR 30 or 75-Watt bulb with a standard E26 base. This Daylight LED bulb uses only 9.5-Watt of power while emitting 680 lumens of clear, clean, bright light. It is estimated that this bulb saves an estimated $180 in energy costs over the course of its life. On average the bulb lasts 22 years (or 25,000 hours of use). This light can be dimmed for convenient light customization, which further helps conserve energy over the life of the bulb.

          Is it a 75 watt bulb equivalency or is it a 70 watt bulb equivalency ?

          Also this says energy star on it whereas others one up one down same manufacturer just more bulbs in box one does not state they are energy star bulbs for those --- even though led -- and text look a likes thus is the text description missing it or is text correct

          This bulb is a 75W (equivalent output to old incandescent lightbulbs), PAR30 (parabolic aluminum reflector), 680 lumen, 5000K (daylight color) bulb.
