          Simple to use, once you understand the directions, I tend to make things more difficult than they really are. Like the idea you can change the combination number anytime you would like. Not that you would want to, why make life harder than it already is.
          Not being the strongest lock on the market, they did prove to give you piece of mind from inquisitive people looking at your luggage. For that alone they were worth it.

          The 18” hook and rail hanger is finished in a dark stain. The holes are drilled on 16” centers, if your luck enough to position it on a stud. It does come with hangers if you install it on dry wall. Easy installation of the hangers, a 3/32” pilot hole, screw in the anchor and you're done. The hardware is what possessed us to get the Venetian Bronze, it's exactly the same finish that we have on our kitchen cabinets and henceforth used the hanger as an accent.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Well Made, Excellent Quality, Looks Great, Looks High End, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design

          The Perky-Pet 2-in-1 Wild Bird Feeder features an exclusive design allowing for easy switching from a mixed/sunflower setting to a thistle/finch mix position—the multi food choice allows for variety in wild birds stopping by to feed. The feeder holds 1 lb. of seed and has four feeding stations with offset perches that allow you to see more birds at one time. The antique copper finish of this 2 in 1 feeder is sure to be an elegant addition to your yard. The bird friendly tray will catch seeds and shells, creating less mess and the removable base makes cleaning this feeder easy. The clear, shatter-proof plastic reservoir makes it easy to monitor seed levels. Remember to clean your feeder once every two weeks with mild soap and water solution.

          It's a beautiful tube bird feeder in copper like finish that would highlight any backyard or garden. It has the four adjustable ports that rotate very smoothly, with two different openings. One for thistle, a thin little slot and the other a small bowl type for the regular bird seed. It's even suggested that you can put the two together, thistle on the bottom and the regular seed on top.
          Cleaning is easily done by twisting the bottom off and using mild soap to wipe the old chaff/seed. We did notice a few things that should be brought to your attention. If by chance you pour the seed out of the feeder there is the chance that the cylinder that the cover attaches to by the two wires can slideRead More

If by chance you pour the seed out of the feeder there is the chance that the cylinder that the cover attaches to by the two wires can slide out of the tube, causing you to lose it. We bring our feeders in overnight to help reduce bears from coming into the area and other mammals/rodents from enjoying the seed. Had to bend the ends of the hangers closer to a 90 degree angle to prevent the feeder from slipping out, refer to picture.
          Even though there are a couple of design flaws, the overall quality and appearance makes this a possible consideration.Read Less

          While the instructions are somewhat intuitive they really do not cover the small intricacies of the installation.
          Starting off with removing the bracket from the light itself. Tilt the light up, as in the picture, there seems to be a notch that locks everything into place. The reverse holds true in putting it together.
          Installing the batteries, sounds simple and it is once you understand the dynamics. It's not a screw type but a twist and if you look really close and I mean really close you will be able to see an impression of a lock, locked on one side and unlocked on the other.

It takes three C batteries, to lift the cover you must depress the tab on the top side. Again if you look really close at the bottom of the battery compartment you will see the +/- symbols. To help, one positive goes down.
          It throws out a light that you would expect from such a small unit, so do not expect it to compete with the bigger units. It's perfect for a closet, a hallway or even an entry to you're outside door or shed, as depicted in the picture. The only adjustments you can make to the light is the positioning, everything else is pre-set at the factory. My particular unit from where it's mounted will come on from about 12 feet away and it will stay on while it detects motion, good feature. Mr. Beams mentions that the batteries should last about a year. Good for what it's made for.Read Less

          The Korky QuietFill Toilet Fill Valve is more than two times quieter than other fill valves. It has a universal design to fit all brands and features a wide range of adjustability to fit most 2-piece and 1-piece toilets. QuietFill Fill Valve is very easy to install and adjust; no tools are required.

          If you're reading this you've been in the same place as so many of us. You started with the old conventional tank fill, maybe had a problem with the flapper so you had to undo the rod that holds the float and so on and so on. Maybe you tried a different fill valve, while it took less room in your tank it filled it on the drip method, one drop at a time or so it seemed, plus it was noisy.
          Along comes Korky with their QuietFILL. I read the instructions twice, because I might have over looked something the first time.

          Along comes Korky with their QuietFILL. I read the instructions twice, because I might have over looked something the first time. The instructions are pretty straight forward and easy to follow in English, Spanish, and French. It takes about 5-10 minutes to install without any special tools, I did use a scissors to cut the tube because it's extremely long. First turn the water off make sure your tank is empty and put a dish tub or something similar under it to catch any water, and remove the old valve. You adjust the height of the QuietFILL to your water line with a counter clockwise twist to loosen it, then clockwise to lock in place, place the tube into your fill valve, secure the line with the enclosed metal clip to the fill tube and that's it.
          Turned the water back on and it filled up quickly and quietly. No ghost flushes or leaks. It's a great change from the other systems that I've had in the tank.Read Less

          Answer: 
          Jimmy,
          In my experience in removing glue from vinyl flooring, is to use a spray bottle, wet the glue, let it soak for 5-10 minutes, scrape. This may take several tries but the keyword here is patience, the scraper will eventually remove it.
