          This 48 in. extendable pry bar is the largest in the indexing pry bar series from GearWrench. Useful for repositioning equipment, prying and aligning vehicle components and general purpose prying applications. An indexing head enables access to tough spots no ordinary pry bar can reach. Extendable at the push of a button from 29 in. to 48 in. and many spots in between. A must have item for your tool box.

          A very interesting and big pry bar tool. The handle grip has a very solid feel at about 1-1/4 in. This thing weighs in at about 15 lb of drop forged steel. Fully extended you have a 4 ft long leverage bar to move along heavy equipment like engine blocks or big rocks. I just used this bar to easily scoot a raised garden bed that would have broken my shovel. The bill hook is unique in that it has numerous angle adjustments. The locking buttons for the bill hook and handle are positive clicks that feel tight and strong. With the tool retracted to its short position it fits easily into my tool chest.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Strong, Well Made, quality steel, heavy duty
          Cons: a bit pricey

          Light enough for an import - Tough enough for a semi. Use in new equipment which requires synthetic oils or any equipment that needs enhanced performance. It can also be used to protect new and used Heavy Duty and High Performance transmissions, gear boxes and engines. Controls heat and wear in motorcycles, air-cooled engines and all drive train components. Reduces friction for increased power and MPG. In Ford Powerstrokes we suggest one quart of Pure Synthetic Oil Stabilizer per oil change.

          I have an expensive diesel tractor that I use the best synthetic oil 5w-40 in. Diesels dirty up any oil really fast and I change mine between 50-100 hours depending on how the dipstick smells. I think that Lucas synthetic oil stabilizer is good insurance to add at oil changes or to top off at mid changes. I also buy the big jugs of Lucas synthetic series oil by the case to save a few bucks. My SUV's do well on synthetic oil with the addition of stabilizers too. Engines can last a long time with great maintenance and attention to quality oil. Even if you don't do your own oil you can still have the oil person use this Lucas product for your vehicle.
          Pros: Easy to Use, maybe worth the cost
          Cons: price

          Have heavy coats, book bags or purses you need to store and organize. The Liberty 45 in. Heavy-Duty Coat and Hat Hook Rack can do your heavy lifting. This hook rack is a great way to get your home in order with style.

          I do like this 6 hook coat rack. It's in my garage because I have numerous coats and hats that I wear often up here at 8000 ft elev. where the weather changes throughout the day/night. My 4 hook rack is being moved to the mudroom/laundry to put on a door. I like this 45 inch 6 hook enough that I'm ordering another one for heavy insulated bibs which are a burden to store in a closet, also for my heavy parkas and rain gear. The long length of the backboard allows to attach to a couple of studs so there's no concern of pulling those drywall anchors out of the wall. The white with nickel hooks looks nice on the wall too.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, Functional, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Well Made

          The DEWALT 4 in. Heavy-Duty Bench Vise is ideal for home, shop and contractor use. Built for durability and dependability, this vise is constructed from 30,000 psi cast iron. The replaceable micro-grooved steel jaws have a strong grip and will prevent objects from moving around once you clamp them in place. A large anvil work surface on the back of the vise is perfect for hammering and shaping metal pieces. The 120° swivel base allows this vise to be positioned so work pieces can be clamped with ease. The machine steel main screw with rolled threads is wear-resistance which provides smooth operation. Whether you are working with wood or metal at home or in the shop, the DEWALT 4 in. Heavy-Duty Bench Vise provides the maximum clamping and holding power needed to get the job done with confidence.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          This little 4" Dewalt is just ok. I do not see that it is heavy-duty, however it is a functional tool for any garage bench. I have several other vices from 4 in upto 9 in. My 4 and 5 inch vices are made in china too, but they are finished much better than this grainy cast iron vise from Dewalt. The edges of this tool are sharp enough to nick work pieces and cut your skin. The matte black finish is spray painted. If I was planning on using this vise I would immediately take a file to it to radius the sharp edges. I have a couple dozen Dewalt tools with most made in china. I have noticed much lower quality in the past few years.
          Pros: Functional
          Cons: poor quality

          The Delta Shelf is the perfect storage solution for any bathroom. Its fixture has a Venetian bronze finish, providing more of a matte appearance, but still reflecting more light than other bronze finishes. It comes equipped with mounting hardware, making it an incredibly user-friendly accessory to install.

          This little corner shelf is a nice fixture to add next to the bathroom sink. Its sturdy tempered glass shelves are ideal to get small cluttered items off the vanity; like the bottles of lotion, cologne, razor, etc. The towel bar will hold a folded hand towel or washcloth. The steel frame is coated with a wiped on bronze colored finish. It comes with drywall anchors to attach to the corner wall. This is a handy and useful fixture.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design, Sturdy, Stylish
          Cons: not stainless steel
