          The first thing to note about this safe is that the battery compartment (4 AAA batteries, not supplied) is easily accessible without first opening the safe. No risk of being locked out if the batteries fail.
          At 138lbs, this safe is not easily going to be carried away by a thief. Optionally, you can bolt the safe to a fixed surface. Mounting points are on the bottom of the unit only, it cannot be bolted through the back to a wall (this is to ensure the fire protection is not compromised).
          6 heavy duty bolts lock the door firmly in place. The door has an exposed hinge on the right, so the door swings left to right. On the back of the door are two compartments for storage, and also 6 hooksRead More

          The main compartment has 2 multi-position trays which can be positioned at one of 16 different heights, making it extremely versatile.
          The safe is supplied with one 5 digit master code that cannot be changed. You can add your own codes, which must also be exactly 5 digits in length.
          This safe is extremely heavy duty, and the fit and finish is excellent. Upon locking the safe I feel secure that it will protect my valuables from fire, water, and even the most persistent thief.Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Strong, many shelf positions
          Cons: can only use 5 digit codes

          The CF325 7.2-Framing Nailer is designed to load and drive fasteners 2 - 3-1/4 in. in length with gauges of 0.113, 0.120 and 0.131. It is finished in a bright orange for high visibility at cluttered job sites, and it's equipped with a depth-of-drive adjustment that resets on the fly. This nailer comes supplied with a lithium-ion battery that charges in as little as 30 minutes on the included charger. The battery's extended life lets you drive up to 6,000 nails between charges.

          Supplied with a rugged plastic carrying case, rechargeable lithium ion battery and charger, and safety glasses, all you need to add is the fuel cell, and of course the nails.
          This framing nailer is perfectly suited for use where a air compressor and hose are not available , or you simply want the freedom to use a cordless tool. The cordless nature means no more dragging hoses around the job site, and also prevents fatigue caused by the drag and restrictive nature of a air hose hanging out of the back of an air powered nailer.

          Setup time is very quick. The battery clicks in to place, a simple thumb operated release to load the nails, and a quick attach for the fuel cell. The lithium-ion battery provides plenty of run time in a small lightweight battery. The battery acts as the power switch. Push the battery in to the nailer and the unit is off, a second push of the battery engages the power. You might consider adding a spare battery, but unless you are doing a huge job I don’t see the need. The Lithium-ion battery has a quick charge feature that allows you to drive 200 nails from a 2 minute charge, and a full charge takes just 1 hour.
          Depth adjustment is quick and effortless, simply press in the two orange prongs.  This is very handy and it allows you to dial in precisely to get a perfect shot each time.
          Nail capacity is average to good. If you want a lightweight tool, then this is the perfect balance of capacity verses weight.
          This nailer is well balanced, solid, tough, and a real workhorse.Read Less
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Strong, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
          Cons: average nail capacity

          The Awaken handshower brings KOHLER quality, design, and performance to your bath. Advanced spray performance delivers three distinct sprays—wide coverage, intense drenching, or targeted—with a smooth rotation of a thumb tab. Ergonomic design makes for superior comfort and ease of use, with ideal balance and weight in the hand. The artfully sculpted sprayface takes its inspiration from the purposeful patterns found in nature, complementing a wide range of bathroom styles.

          Installation is very simple, and it can be installed by hand without the need for tools.
          This hand shower is constructed of chrome colored plastic. Almost all parts are plastic, with the exception of two brass fittings inside the plastic hose. Given its all plastic construction, the hand shower lacks a heavy feel.
          A small lever on the head allows you to select one of the three spray patterns. On its highest flow setting, I found adequate water for a luxurious feel, and the lower flow settings provided more power for blasting off grime after a day gardening or invigorating my tired body. The hose is somewhat rigid, a little too rigid for my liking.

          VorMax flushing technology is the solution to maintaining a cleaner toilet bowl by simply flushing the toilet. Its revolutionary VorMax flushing system completely cleans the entire bowl, including under the rim. The VorMax flushing technology has been independently tested and proven to CLEAN 2X BETTER than conventional toilets. This helps maintain a tidier toilet bowl longer, so cleaning is a breeze. Source: IAPMO test comparing VorMax against conventional under-the-rim-water-dispersal toilets from major retailers. Test measured average removal of tomato paste from bowl wall in a single flush.

          This is a two piece toilet, the tank connects to the base with 3 bolts. Installation was a breeze. Even though this is a very substantial fixture, the 2 pieces could be lifted in to place and connected in situ. A wax seal is provided, as are all other pieces necessary for installation, a water line is not provided. Installation, including removing the old fixture, took less than 10 minutes.

          You will be ‘sitting pretty’ with this slightly taller than normal (16-1/2" rim height ) toilet, that also features an elongated bowl.
          The finish is excellent. I was unable to find one blemish or glaze defect on all of the toilet. The bowl has a highly polished and smooth appearance, which is going to help prevent discoloration and mineral deposits over the years.
          This is the first toilet I have owned that has 2 flappers. American Standard call this their VorMax™ Flush Technology. The concept is simple. The flappers trip at slightly different times, one shoots a jet of water around the rim in a spiraling motion that removes any waste and the other forces the contents of the bowl down the waste outlet. It works very well (see my attached video). Unlike other toilets, water spirals around the bowl in a single direction. This creates a spiraling flow that helps clean the toilet and push the waste down the waste outlet. Each flush uses just 1.28 gallons of water, yet manages to clean the whole bowl.
          There is no rim or lip on this toilet to attract grime or dirt buildup, instead the water shoots from one side in a spiraling motion.
          In general, a very well made and attractive bathroom fixture, with a promise to flush with just 1.28 gallons of water. It manages this admirably.Read Less

          This is a small, and unobtrusive unit, that fits wherever you have a power outlet.
          As the husband of a veterinarian, we have a number of cats that now call our place their home. This air cleaner is perfect for keeping the air clean, and preventing allergies.
          On its slowest setting the unit is almost inaudible. On medium it is about the noise of a small desk fan. High and Turbo settings are like a larger desk fan. I was able to sleep with the unit on its highest setting, but it is certainly audible and may not be suited for everyone on this setting.
          The air cleaner is multi stage, and is supplied with 4 carbon filters which you replace each month. I found it did a good job of removing odors.Read More

          The air cleaner is multi stage, and is supplied with 4 carbon filters which you replace each month. I found it did a good job of removing odors. The unit has a built in sensor that detects 'poor air quality' and if set to automatic mode will ramp up the air cleaning speed as needed. This does not detect all air quality problems, and it is still necessary to manually adjust the speed in some instances.
          One complaint I have is the LEDs on the top of the unit pulse while it is running. This is not a big problem during the day, but at night it illuminates a dark bedroom with a constant pulse of light. I had to place a book over the LED to prevent it disturbing my sleep.Read Less
