          Slime is a well-known brand for flat tire prevention and repair. These valve caps are sturdily crafted and carry the Slime guarantee. Replace worn and leaky valve caps with Slime's standard black valve caps.

          No, I do not recommend this product.
          The company name may sound a bit strange (Slime) but the valve caps aren't. Made of plastic with a knurled end for non-slip on and off operation, fits Schrader valves, and is tire sensor safe. Great inexpensive replacement for worn or missing valve caps.

          Black Lace features a unique and intense purple/black foliage with intricate leaves. Often used by designers, Black Lace is extremely durable and adaptable to most sites. Left alone in a sunny environment, it can reach up to 8 ft. in height. This variety can easily be pruned back to fit into smaller settings as well. Because Black Lace attracts birds and resists deer, it works well in a container on the patio or grouped in the landscape. For best performance, use Proven Winners fertilizers and irrigate with Proven Winners WaterWise kit.

          Ordered the plant in February with a follow up call from the nursery explaining to me when the plant should arrive. Shortly after that the plant arrived well packaged and very healthy. The package mentioned that the Elderberry Bush was in a dormant stage and could survive without any care until April.
          Planted the Proven Winners Black Lace, in mid-April and was concerned that even though the ground wasn't frozen the occasional frost would kill it. The plant did go into shock like most plants that are transplanted, but within a week or so buds from around the base started re-appearing.

          The deck that the stain was to be applied to was previously stained, it was worn, peeling, and dull looking. After prepping the deck the Thompson's was applied, being a semi-transparent stain it kept most of the original color. It was easy to apply using a roller and brush for the tight areas. We were surprised at how far it went and only one coat was needed. Cleanup was a breeze using just soap and water. Drying time was about two hours.The pictures tell more of the story than I could tell.
          Pros: Easy to Apply, Good Coverage, Easy to Clean, Easy to Use, Looks Great, Dries Quickly

          4 uses, 1 amazing tool. SuperTuff Select's new 4-in-1 Bucket Hook is more than your average bucket hook. It provides a secure way to hang your paint pail from your ladder. It also features a screwdriver for removing wall plates and opener and a swivel clamp to allow for a rotating paint pail. Plus our exclusive easy lift finger loop allows for an easier lift than other paint pails.

          Have used other bucket hooks that aren't as versatile as this. Built in screwdriver, a large loop for carrying and placing a rag into and a swivel hook that also has a built-in clasp so the handle of the paint can doesn't accidentally slip out. Will hold a gallon of paint safely.
          Pros: High Quality of Material, Easy to Use

          The Perky-Pet Squirrel-Be-Gone Wild Bird Feeder features six feeding ports, U-shaped perches and a 2 lb. seed capacity. The feeding ports have sturdy metal perches that allow birds to feed comfortably but, when the squirrels perch on them, their weight causes the entire metal casing to slip down, completely blocking the feeding ports and their access to the seed. The interior seed tower is surrounded by rustic metalwork. The six perch/feeding station set-up, coupled with the anti-squirrel technology makes this feeder one of the most economical and convenient squirrel proof feeders on the market. Comes fully assembled. Remember to clean your squirrel proof feeders once every two weeks with a mild soap and water solution.
           

          How do you fill the feeder with seeds?

          Does the top come off? So far I've been filling it thru the feeding slots and that doesn't seem right.

          The top slips on and off, use some pressure to pry it off and you should be all set.

          I recently installed this fill valve, and it works properly but is very noisy.
