5.0 out of 5 stars About the active ingredient, Trifluralin, July 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Preen has proven to be very effective at keeping the weeds out of the ornamental plants. Don't use this product on lawns. The active ingredient in this Preen product is Trifluralin. It inhibits the emergence of broadleaf weeds and annual weed grasses by inhibiting mitosis (part of the cell cycle process by which chromosomes in a cell nucleus are separated into two identical sets of chromosomes). Trifluralin is gradually degraded by soil microorganisms. The half-life of trifluralin in the soil is 45 to 60 days which means that after six months to one year, 80- 90% of its activity will be gone. So Preen should be re-applied at least each year to be most effective (the product label says to re-apply every 3 months).

4.0 out of 5 stars Compared to Knipex, July 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have the same size Knipex except with the angled head, here's a photo of them side by side. There are two noticeable differences: the plastic release latches are different, and the Knipex is Made in Germany while this HK Porter is Made in China. Sometimes the side of my finger rubs against the larger plastic release latch on the HK Porter, so I prefer the Knipex design which keeps this latch on the interior portion.

Havahart CD1LB Cat and Dog Granular Animal Repellent, 1 lb.
Havahart CD1LB Cat and Dog Granular Animal Repellent, 1 lb.
Price: $14.22

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps the cat out of our vegetable garden, July 4, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This repellant contains citronella oil and castor oil, ingredients that are safe to use around the house and kids. Other ingredients include white pepper, cinnamon oil, and garlic. The neighbor cat keeps using our vegetable garden as a litter box. So far this has kept the cat away. I like the pleasant ingredients, for example this doesn't have dried blood or putrescent egg solids like some other animal repellants. This has a nice fresh citronella / cinnamon / garlic fragrance. A nice side effect is that the citronella also helps to repel bugs, flies, and mosquitos near the vegetable garden.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photo of the larger collar (medium/large option), July 4, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The first thing I noticed, the correction collar is pretty large with the medium/large version of the fence. Here's a photo showing just how long the prongs are. This works better for our maremma sheep dog as he weighs 125 lbs and has lots of hair on his neck. So we don't have to put it on tight at all, the prongs still reach and keep him in the area when we travel to different pastures. This comes with a large colorful instruction book, much more substantial than most of the little black & white sheets that come with most products these days, which made it easy to understand how to setup and do the initial training.

Bosch GLL 2-20 360-Degree Self-Leveling Line and Cross Laser

5.0 out of 5 stars Compared to the GLL 2-80 and 3-80, July 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I also have the GLL 3-80 model which has 3 laser planes rather than 2 planes like this model. See my review of the GLL 3-80 for photos of what the laser lines look like while installing a kitchen backsplash, and how simple these are to use out of the box. The primary difference between the models is the number of planes and orientation of the planes.

This 2-20 model has a horizontal and vertical planes, with the vertical plane projection lined up with the narrow end of the unit. The 2-80 model has the vertical plane lined up with the wide side of the unit. I find that the 2-20 model is the most compact, so this is the model to get if you like to easily carry it around the job site, and easily fit it in your tool belt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously simple to use, a must-have tool, June 30, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I don't know why I was messing around with clunky bubble levels for so long, now that I tried this Bosch 3 plane laser level. I love this tool! Here are some photos of the laser line before installing a kitchen backsplash. When I first opened the manual, I was afraid I would have to spend an hour decrypting all of the functions (like with the Bosch laser distance tool), but actually the instructions are so simple, turns out I had it all figured out before I looked at the manual.

The power switch slides to two ON positions; the first one is to lock the laser beam so it does not auto-level, and the second one enables auto-level. When you first place the tool on the surface or tripod, the beam will wiggle around like something that's balancing on a point. But then the wiggling stabilizes within a couple seconds, making the projected laser lines perfectly stable and level, with no vibration at all, until the next time someone bumps into the tool. Then it stabilizes again within a couple seconds.

The laser beam is very bright, as you can see in the photos. With all of the mounting options, and 3 planes, it is easy to find a spot to place the tool to project the beam into tricky areas. In fact I find it more convenient to use this laser alignment tool than to use an old fashioned bubble level, because sometimes the bubble level is too long to fit into spaces or I would like to have two free hands to work instead of holding an old fashioned bubble level.

I really had no idea how useful this would be until I tried it.

Nature Bound Bug Vacuum - Motorized Kit
Nature Bound Bug Vacuum - Motorized Kit
Price: $22.99

4.0 out of 5 stars For kids who love vacuums, June 29, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is not just for bugs, our 2 year old boy is fascinated by any vacuum around the house and he always wants to "help" us with the nozzle. Now he can play with his own mini version and it is harmless when it sucks up household objects. I know this is for older toddlers but we watch him play with it supervised. The suction is weak, just barely enough to grab a bug or a little scrap piece of paper. The first thing I did is to replace the alkaline batteries with four Energizer Ultimate Lithium AA batteries to give it a little bit more sucking power. It shines a fuzzy green LED where it is pointed. This is a great way to entertain a toddler who is obsessed with household vacuum cleaners!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice gasket, fastens on easily, June 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Here's a photo of this cam and groove cap. It has a nice water tight gasket inside. It was easier to put on than the fitting on the discharge hose, I didn't have to use nearly as much pressure to close the levers. I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because it is Made in China.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blum servo drive is convenient, June 22, 2015
When we decided to have this drawer installed in our new kitchen, I wasn't sure if the automatic open feature would be merely a novelty or actually useful. It turns out, I like it a lot because it reduces the effort to pull open the drawer with dirty hands, allowing the handle front and panel to stay cleaner than a traditional waste drawer. The double waste bin configuration is much better than the single waste bin, so that the rear waste bin can be used for recycling beverage cans. I used the green lid on the rear waste bin so that no one throws trash in there by accident, and no cover on the front waste bin. After a lot of research, and first hand experience, this is the best configuration and perhaps the nicest waste bin drawer on the market.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for a temporary band-aid while waiting for a permanent fix, June 21, 2015
I have a leak in a 2" PVC main line and the family needs to be able to use water occasionally while we prepare for a more permanent repair. The pipe joint glue broke loose and the pipe slipped out 1/2" spraying water out the side. So I wrapped the pipe with two of these kits, and I was able to get it down to a drip. Now we can take a shower and flush the toilets while waiting for a complete replacement of the messed up pipe section. If you think of this as a temporary band-aid to buy some more time, it is a wonderful product. This consists of epoxy putty and very fast setting fiberglass wrap. Epoxy and fiberglass are strong, proven materials. Some people may succeed in using this for a permanent repair, but then you have to be very careful to follow the instructions exactly and get it perfect the first time around - because once it dries rock solid it would be tough to try again.
