AGS LE5 Lock Ease

Price: $6.92

5.0 out of 5 stars The superior lubricant for door knobs and locks, December 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AGS LE5 Lock Ease (Misc.)
It is graphite. The superior lubricant for door knobs and locks. The spray application makes it easy to apply and to get into those tight little place - the ones where it is needed most. The carrier is rather like WD-40, a really light solvent that evaporates leaving the graphite behind to do its job. I did both the back and front doors tonight upon receiving the product and improved the action of both knobs and locks quite noticeably.

BE AWARE: the stuff comes out rather forcefully and overspray happens. It will clean up readily, but best not to make the mess in the first place. DAMHIKT.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the money, these glasses are a very good deal. They wrap around and cover the periphery well. Light and comfy. Most importantly - cheap enough to not cry over if lost or broken. I like the gray lenses and polarization. Expensive sunglasses are destined to a bad end almost by definition. These do the job very well.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A little on the thin side, this is a fairly light-weight blanket. It is quite satisfactory for my purpose - to use over the fitted sheet on the bed as an alternative to flannel sheets for these cold nights. It works quite well for that purpose. The bed is much more cozy than with only the bare cotton fitted sheet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stays on a little long in the morning., February 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As with any mass-produced of this sort - geared to be inexpensive and useful at the same time - there are tradeoffs to be made. With this sensor, the tradeoff is that the off trigger level cannot be calibrated and so it stays on too long. But it generally does the job. Just use it with an efficient light source (if lighting is your application) such as an LED bulb, and no worries.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap for a reason., November 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This clock does keep decent time. It's cheap. But the auto set feature really does not work. It is very difficult to set, and the DST feature is completely non-intuitive. And I am an engineer accustomed to working on complex systems every day. Skip this one. Buy yourself a self-setting clock.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed after a few uses, October 1, 2013
Shopped carefully I thought. Wanted the best. Fabric pulled away from the ferrule in the center. Lifetime guarantee is hype. Too much for shipping and handling. Bought a she drain at about half the cost. Will see how it works.

4.0 out of 5 stars Appears to do the job well and quickly., May 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a pretty nice set of earbuds that came with a terrible case. So I've been looking for something to protect and contain them during my train commutes. I found this, and it seems to do the job. One fundamental requirement is that I do not have to coil up the cord, but can wind it around something. Coiling just leads to a mess and tangle. This thing seems to work quickly and well. We'll see about the durability. The size is fairly compact, and removal from the case is quick. A thoughtful design, I'd say.

2.0 out of 5 stars Progressive politics, March 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rise (MP3 Music)
If you were seeking beautiful folk music as Annabelle has created previously, you have come to the wrong place for your pleasant, relaxing experience. This is a political rant set to music. That wonderful voice and mandolin are wasted on this nonsense. And her political views expressed here lead to tyranny to top it off. Two stars, but only due to the force of the talent. I guess that talent and wisdom do not correlate well sometimes.

3.0 out of 5 stars quality construction; convex bottom, February 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall, the build and material quality of the pan is very good. The handle is very long and the grip is not slippery. Unfortunately, the bottom is not machined flat, making this an unfortunate choice for any cooktop except perhaps gas. The pan spins readily on my glass cooktop.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not big enough., June 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really do not understand how these things can be rated for 10-12 gauge wire. There is NO WAY that they will fit over 12 gauge lamp cord without stripping the insulation first, completely defeating the purpose - much less anything at 10 gauge. They appear to be well-made, but I would rate these for use with 14 gauge wire at most.
