          Tactically inspired, the instant utilizes Gerber’s fast mechanism for easy, 1-handed blade opening. Layers of g10 composite are textured and shaped to make an ultra-light, ultra-tactile handle. It’s a sleek, ballistic clip folder made for everyday use.

          Personally I like the outrigger from Gerber better, but this is also a fine choice for everyday carry. Blade seems durable and with a bit of practice the one handed open performs well. Looks are subjective, of course, but I think it's an attractive piece of gear.
          Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight

          The Outrigger blends features from three of Gerber’s most popular clip folders of the past 10 years into 4 oz. of functional, problem-solving design. Its Assisted Opening 2.0 technology from the Gerber Instant relies on a ball-bearing pivot for silky smooth, 1-handed opening. Added safety comes via the thumb Plunge Lock on the handle, so you can close the blade easily, without putting your fingers in harm’s way.

          I've reviewed a handful of knives for home depot and this is my favorite Gerber, hands down. Nice heft but perfect for everyday carry, silky smooth operation and a sharp, versatile blade make this one a winner. Zero complaints with this one, highly recommended.

          Attractive, opens easily, and a good balance between weight and function. Blade is quite sharp and seems to retain its edge well so far. I like it.

          The TOUGHBUILT GELFIT Rocker Kneepads redefine how professionals use their kneepads. This patented kneepad system allows the hard Rocker SnapShell to be removed entirely or interchanged with other SnapShells. Create the exact kneepad to fit every job. Hard-wearing, shatter-resistant SnapShell protects the knee on the roughest terrain while enabling easy side-to-side movement. Ergonomic gel and foam design embraces the natural shape of the knee and upper shin, maximizing pressure distribution for all-day comfort. High side walls greatly reduce twisting off of the knee. Secondary tension straps allow incremental adjustment, keeping the tops from falling away and twisting. Rugged materials and construction make these reliable kneepads withstand the most rigorous working conditions.

          The most maneuverable in the gel fit series of knee pads, these are my goto when mobility is a must. I may even use for paintball later in the summer! For floor work they are really high quality and comfortable. It's a really impressive functIoning product line, and they look sharp, too. The behind-the-knee strap can be a bit of an irritant, but thats inherent with all knee pads.
          Pros: Sturdy, Comfortable, Looks Great

Professional-grade potting soil made from a blend of premium Canadian sphagnum peat moss, processed softwood bark and horticultural-grade perlite. This blend contains a professional wetting agent and dolomite lime to buffer soil pH. Available in two sizes.

          We're noticing promising early results with this soil in our spring plantings. Easy to work with and good levels of moisture retention. Looking forward to seeing what blooms this summer.

          Q-SEE's 960H surveillance system, the QC524-4K2-5, offers a recorded video image that is over 30% larger than D1 and over 500% larger than CIF resolution, providing a recording resolution that further closes the gap between the high definition resolution of expensive state-of-the-art systems and the conventional resolution of analog systems. The outstanding recording resolution isn't the only noteworthy feature of this security DVR. With an array of remote monitoring features, this DVR keeps you connected even when you're away. Monitor from a compatible smart phone or tablet, and check in on the system when you're at work or just on the go. This multi-tasking DVR can even send out email alerts when motion is detected or a camera loses video. Coupled with 960H/700 TVL cameras, monitoring your surroundings has never been easier or clearer. High quality image sensors and LED's allow each camera to provide color accurate images during the day and bright black and white images during the night.
           

          Are these items hard wire or battery operated? Are they wireless (camera to monitor)?

          Answer: 
          Hardwired, and no, they are not wireless. There are two cables that run to each camera, one to deliver power, and one to transmit the signal.

          One answer was that cables could not run inside walls. Why is this? Certainly you don't want exposed wires if they can be hidden in walls.

          Answer: 
          It's up to the homeowner/business owner and local code regulations, I would imagine. Certainly, I would see no problem running AV and low voltage cable through walls, as long as it was through protected studs.
          For my installation I had a drop ceiling which aided the instal, but if I had to run it through walls I would have done so without hesitation. Quality wires.

          It would, probably, but only for patient, sporadic use. This tool is a real gas hog, though. My 20-gallon Husky compressor ran nearly constantly when using this impact wrench.
