          The large S-Biner #8 has dozens and dozens of uses. With dual spring gates and double functionality, the S-Biner #8 is a 2-in-1 tool that has as many uses as you have medium sized things you'd like to organize, keep track of, or carry with you in an easy, hands-free way. Made of strong, lightweight, durable plastic, it's strong enough to connect necessities to stroller handles (diaper bags, laundry bags, grocery bags, backpacks, boat railings, ladder rungs - anything you might want to take along when you're out and about). It also makes hanging and organizing in sheds and garages a snap.

          This Nite Ize Plastic S-Biner 3 pack has countless uses. My daughter is using the two smaller clips in her locker and backpack at school. I am using the larger clip to organize the plastic bags I receive from the grocery store for future use. The larger ring will hold nearly 100 bags. Next spring I plan to buy some more three packs to put in my fishing boat to organize equipment. The clips are made of hard plastic and the springs are super strong. The large clip measures 3.5 x 8 inches. The medium one is 2.5 x 5.5 inches. The small clip is 1.5 x 3.5 inches.
          Pros: Durable, Nice Design, countless uses
          Cons: wish you could buy a 12+ pack

          I installed this Lyric Top-Mount/Undermount Stainless Steel 33 in. 4-Hole Single Bowl Kitchen Sink into my bar in the basement. I enjoy smoking meat and the basement bar is where I prep work. This sink is perfect for my operation. The sink has 4 holes so if you are going to top mount the sink you need to have a 4-hole faucet. If you are going to under mount the sink it can be under mounted using just one hole for the faucet and one hole for the soap if desired. The sink doesn’t come with a drain so that will need to be sourced from HD before the installation. The installation is pretty straight forward.

The sink doesn’t come with a drain so that will need to be sourced from HD before the installation. The installation is pretty straight forward. The kit comes with a template that shows where to cut the counter top depending on how you intend to mount the sink. The directions tell you to mount the drain before you place the sink into place and I’d also recommend installing the faucet before you place the sink so less time is needed under and inside the cabinet when installing. Since the sink is 33 inches wide your base cabinet has to be at least 36 inches wide. The cabinet comes with the tie down clamps. I found that since the sink is so wide that the clamps on the sides are super hard to install. Finally the sink come with a lifetime warranty. Read Less
          Pros: Convenient, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great
          Cons: doesn't come with a faucet

          This 8 oz. Lemon Lavender Solid Pet Odor Absorber and Air Freshener works really well in smaller areas. I first put this freshener in the basement living room by my yellow labs sleeping crate. This room is relatively large. The freshener didn't seem to work very well in a large room. I then put it in the master closet and it worked great. I suspect if you are going to use it in a large room that you will need more than one and at less than $3 I think that is a solution. The freshener says it is Lemon Lavender. I can definitely smell the lemon but can't smell the lavender.
          Pros: under $3, great in a small space
          Cons: need more than one in a large room

          This Ridgid ½ HP 120 volt sewage pump is a beast. It is cast iron and weighs around 35 pounds. The pump comes with the pump and tether switch. For a replacement installation you will need a 2” male to PVC adaptor that screws into the pump. You will then need 2” PVC to plumb the pump to your union. If you are doing a new construction install you will need a check valve, union, 2” adaptor, PVC, and then the pump needs to be plugged into a GFCI outlet.

          When your eyes require reading materials to be held further away to focus or more light to see clearly, it is time to purchase reading glasses. Other indicators may be blurred vision at normal distance reading, headaches or tired eyes after working. Magnifeye reading glasses provide superb optical clarity. These readers are a great value, offering high quality for a low price.

          These 1.25 magnification reading glasses. are something that is needed in many different areas of the house and garage. I suggest putting a pair in your tool box, tackle box, and on your night stand. The glasses have scratch resistant lenses. The glasses also seem to be built super strongly and have confirmable nose pieces. These aren't a replacement for prescription reading glasses.

The 24"x 36" side opposite the handle side would be rested on the dolly base and the 62" dimension facing up strapped against the dolly. I'd like to make sure the workbench can be tilted in this direction for transport up stairs without damage. Thanks

In Home Depot's Delivery & Installation instructions it says to ensure the rough cabinet opening is at least: 24" W X 24" D X 34–1/2" H. However, this dishwasher is 18" wide.
