NEW Redbacks Strapped Knee Pads
NEW Redbacks Strapped Knee Pads
Offered by Redbacks Cushioning Ltd.
Price: $69.95
2 used & new from $69.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Close to the perfect knee pad!, June 2, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really thought that these knee pads may be close to the perfect knee pad, and I was right, they're close.

The design of the pad is executed well. While the knee pad is a bit bulky, the comfort rating is top notch! I should know after having two knee surgeries. I have never felt more comfortable working with flooring as these pads provide!

After two months of use, my only complaint are the velcro on the straps. The velcro portion of the strap is near to the exact same width as the fabric portion of the strap which means; If you're wearing shorts, then the plastic backing of the velcro edges will begin digging into the back side of your legs. Living in the Southwest desert, I would really prefer wearing shorts much more than wearing jeans while working. As you stand up and kneel down, this digging or friction of the velcro edges on the back side of your legs will really take a toll, virtually negating the added comfort of the knee pad and it's excellent design.

A better design would be to have the fabric straps either wider than the velcro material or reduce the width of the velco material, therefore reducing the possibility of contact with the rather stiff velcro plastic backing. Currently, I am looking into a way to prevent the velcro backing from aggravating the area behind my knees in the existing pair of knee pads that I have. If I can find a way to achieve that, I will be thrilled with these pads!

2.0 out of 5 stars Once it's operational, it does a pretty decent job. Getting it operational, is a different story., May 19, 2016
Once it's operational, it does a pretty decent job.

However, this has to be the hardest piece of equipment to start that I have ever operated! Doesn't matter whether it's fresh gas or even with Sta-bil added in to week old gas! No matter what, or how you adjust the choke it takes a good 20 pulls to get the engine started. The knobs holding the top of the 'handle' to the frame frequently vibrate off since there is no lock washer below the knob. The other pain is that the tires have to be inflated every week.

1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged Surface due to Packaging, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After ordering a Skinomi Screen Protector for my 8" Galaxy Tab 4 and loving the results, I decided to purchase this brand of screen protector for my other devices.

I have now ordered two of these now for my wife's Galaxy S4. The first one went on with no issues, but after it completely cured, two days later, there is still a pattern to the surface of the protector which you can see here; i1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff482/vladimir___/protector.jpg
So I ordered a replacement for the original damaged one. When the second one arrived, I paid closer attention to prior to removing it from the packaging. After examining how the cellophane bag was stuck and adhered to the screen protector, I removed the screen protector from the cellophane bag and it displayed the same pattern to the protector's surface as the way the cellophane bag was stuck to it.

This surface damage is apparently a result of the cellophane bag sticking to the screen protector and probably sitting in a hot warehouse for who knows how long.

I also ordered two protectors for my Galaxy Note 2. One of the two boxes had an extra piece of packaging material that prevented the cellophane bag from contacting and damaging the surface, the second one did not and had a similar pattern in the surface of the protector.

So if you're purchasing this protector for a device that has just hit the market like my Galaxy Tab 4, you're probably safe. But if you're purchasing these protectors for a device that has been available for a while, you protector may have been sitting in a hot warehouse with the cellophane bag adhering to and damaging the protector's surface.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wonky! Purely wonkey!, August 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Power supply was plugged into the HooToo® USB 3.0 Hub, whether the power supply worked correctly or not, I cannot say. But something with this package was not working properly.

When the HooToo® USB 3.0 Hub is connected to my Mac through a PCI card with USB 3.0 ports, the Mac does not recognize any USB 3.0 portable drive connected to the hub, even though the Mac has no issues with the drives connected directly to the USB 3.0 port.

When the HooToo® USB 3.0 Hub is connected to my PC motherboard's USB 3.0 ports, any drive plugged into the hub reports as being plugged into a USB 2.0 port with Windows 7 reporting "This device an work quicker when plugged into a USB 3.0 port".

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor packaging led to ruined Steelbook!, August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If I could have chosen no stars, I would have.

Steelbook blu-rays are limited production blu-rays, typically purchased by collectors. Some collectors open these limited steelbooks and some keep them closed as collector's items.

This item arrived with the discs inside loose and rattling around inside the case, which ruined the value of this collector's item. I have no idea whether the steelbook was originally packaged with the discs loose, or whether this happened during shipping, but I have been having issues with Amazon using the barely padded yellow bags for shipping items that can be easily damaged.


Intro-Tech Automotive BM-26 "Custom Auto Shade" Sun Shade
Intro-Tech Automotive BM-26 "Custom Auto Shade" Sun Shade
Price: $30.39

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts out well enough..., July 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I initially liked the Intro-Tech Auto Shade, the fit was relatively good, leaving little to no gaps at the top, bottom or sides. Unfortunately, that fitting didn't last past the first week.

After rolling and unrolling the numerous times, this version of Intro-Tech's Auto Shade looses some of it's stiffness. This loss in stiffness allows the sunshade to 'buckle' a bit across the width of the windshield, leaving 3/4" to 1" gaps along the left and right side of the windshield. Even attempting to use the sun visors to 'mash out' and support the Auto Shade does not help since my BMW's sun visors do not fold down far enough to press the Auto Shade up against the windshield.

Any bend or crease to the Auto shade's material will affect how well it covers the area of the windshield. I inadvertently bent a lower corner of the Auto Shade when removing it one afternoon. That lower corner crease allows the auto shade to droop down on the left side of my windshield now, resulting in an even larger gap of area not being covered. To keep the Auto Shade in place, I ended up using the 'pop up' style oval window shades to push the Auto Shade up so that it would cover the windshield as it originally did.

The velcro strap intended for keeping the Auto Shade rolled tightly caught the fabric trim of the pillar support once which pulled the fabric away from the plastic pillar cover causing a very ugly loose section. This area is so visible and distracting that I will end up paying quite a bit to have that piece replaced. This may have been prevented if the softer loop section of the velcro was sewn next to the Auto Shade rather than the hooked section of the velcro.

The only saving grace, and the reason I provided two stars on this review, is that the material does seem to reduce the heat inside the car more than the average 'pop up' style oval window shades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooks the pizzas correctly!, April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this to replace an aluminum pizza pan. Cooking pizzas with the aluminum pan I always need to add a few minutes to the cook time to get a pizza cooked correctly. Using this pan, the cook time is reduced and follows the recommended times on the frozen pizza instructions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, nasty sticker on Jigger!, April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: EZ Step Jigger, Acrylic (Kitchen)
I have owned a couple of these in the past, and they're very quick, easy and convenient as a measurement jigger. Instead of having to look at the side of a jigger to see how much has been poured, you can view this one from the top or side.

I would have given this product 5 stars, except I had to soak the jigger in soap water for three days to get the cheap paper sticker off of the jigger. I don't know whether it was the manufacturer or the retailer that added the sticker, but you can source stickers that are made to be removed and do not leave a residue, you should look into these!

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Color!, March 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The image in the listing shows a white/ivory colored jacket, but what I received was grey jacketed speaker cable. Either the description needs to indicate grey or the picture needs updating.
