5.0 out of 5 stars Old age and illness means finding ways to make life easy !, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We are fortunate that we have a good neighbor, with a large driveway area, that is happy to put her garden rubbish in our trailer as payment for keeping it there. It's one of the larger trailers you can buy for home use, will carry ten bags of sand and 10 blocks and still not complain, but my arms do when trying to uncouple from the car.

With a mounting kit from the same make/supplier, and with the trailer coupled to the car, took about ten minutes to fit. Doing it when connected to the car, means you can see where best to attach, so that it is out of the way. You will need to pump the tyre up, the valve is a bit fiddly to get to, but worked with an electric pump.

Whether the trailer is loaded to go down to the dump, or with a load of building material from the builders merchant, NO more straining arms to uncouple/couple. Wind the handle to raise the trailer, easy peasy, pull to the towball, and a few more turns sees it safely coupled. Wind the wheel up so the the wheel bars slot into the casing, slacken the catch and raise the wheel casing up out of the way, retighten the catch, all done. The tyre is also good enough to make pushing or pulling the loaded trailer easy as well.

If you need a jockey wheel for a normal household size trailer, then this is a good buy. Well made, easy to use, looks strong and up-to-the-job. A happy man without aching arms, recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, tray feels a bit flimsy, wish it had a longer cable., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's an external DVD/CD reader/writer, how do you discribe what it does against a different one, most would only have one anyway. My wife is completing a major World War 1 pictorial history, renovating negatives of photos taken over 35 years ago using various types of 35mm film. Our internal DVD/CD writer is a few years old, uses less modern drivers, and has been becoming tempramental.

Rather than replace it, it still reads okay, and to save taking the case apart, not advisable when wife is professional FRPS photographer and wants nothing to go wrong, bought as a safe solution, and had fairly good reviews. Easy installation, quick to connect, looks sturdy but found the tray a bit flimsy.

Have no problem recommending if you want a reliable external DVD/CD reader/writer, just wish the cable was a bit longer as it doesn't quite reach the desk top, but that's my problem, not the good Samsung's !.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what it says, bluetooth headphones, easy controls, not cumbersome, use them daily., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to use a Park & Ride bus each day to reach where I work, parking charges are nearly £10.00 a day. I read usually, but found conversations on a nearly empty bus were a distraction. A colleague recoommended I get these, she listens to podcasts from her iPad on the same bus.

Easy to link to iPhone, has sensible maximum volume setting which isn't ear damaging. Can go forward or back, and pause, and will include text/email recieving tones as well, something I hadn't thought about. I also wear glasses for reading, and more when outside, and these don't interfere or feel loose.

I like dance/pop floorfiller type of music, and the quality of sound is good, no tinny distortion, as good as my computer seperate speakers. Happy to recommend, well made and easy to put on, well worth the money.


True Utility TU35 Recoil Strong Steel Belt Clip Recoil Clip for Key-Ring
True Utility TU35 Recoil Strong Steel Belt Clip Recoil Clip for Key-Ring

Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Is what is says, strong steel twisted rope, is as it looks, finally found a good one., 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have tried also sorts of recoil belt clips, most last about a year if lucky, even a metal chain version snapped. I use it to hold my staff pass, which I need to hold against swipe readers, and the key to my pedastel. I can't stand things hanging round my neck, swinging forward when you bend over.

I left the key in the lock once, and the clip pulled off the belt without damaging it, and recoiled back to the lock, so it is strong. If you need something with a reasonable length, not cumbersome, and easy to use, then have no hesitation in recommending this.

Any suggestions on what to do with the case it comes in, it's too good to just throw away !

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, can't tell if a deterent, but car has been safe in Park & Ride carpark., 6 April 2014

A bit tongue in cheek, how do you know if it works as a deterent. Just think with a small fixed camera to look the part, it might just stop some opportunist thief, and save a lot of grief.


Multi-Sharp 2001 Multi-Sharp Dual Purpose Drill & Tool Sharpener
Multi-Sharp 2001 Multi-Sharp Dual Purpose Drill & Tool Sharpener
Price: £14.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, including masonary - recommend, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the first one I have found that enables you to do 10mm masonary bits. Others say 10mm including masonary, BUT, they don't cope with the slightly wider head on these bits.

Took a few minutes to set up, suggest a piece of chipboard big enough to take drill and sharpener. Once set up, very easy to use, I sharpened two 10mm masonary easily within 5 minutes - read the instructions carefully, they do make sense. Had been drilling through strong concrete, and the bits felt like new when I used them after sharpening.

No more blunt bits when the D.I.Y. store closed, just sharpen and carry on..

4.0 out of 5 stars Once you work out how to fit it, it does exactly what it says., 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Age and strength meant I needed to be able to move my trailer without having to pick up the drawbar each time. Stored on a neighbours driveway, meant lifting and pulling to my car. And lifting up to mount on the towbar.

I bought the jockey wheel from the same manufacturer, confident they would go together. It took five minutes to work out which way round the bolts and plate should go, but after that, less than five minutes to fit.

If you need to attach a jockey wheel to your trailer, then this is just what you need.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, impressive sound, like the functions available, alround - a good buy, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a 20 minute wait and 15 minute bus journey each working day, and was looking for some way to listen to music without all that fiddle of cables and ear plugs.

Easy to put on, straight forward to switch on and link to my iPhone, with both sound and track controls, plus a mute option I have just discovered after using them for over a month. The sound quality is good, better than I expected. I like the disco/fitness/dance music with a beat, variety of vocals and a range of rythms even at 6.30am in the morning.

If you want good quality and sound, ease of use, good control options, then look no further, well worth the money, and I am a happy bunny both waiting and on the bus.


Roberts CHRONODAB DAB/FM Digital Alarm Clock Radio with Instant Time Set
Roberts CHRONODAB DAB/FM Digital Alarm Clock Radio with Instant Time Set
Price: £61.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Roberts, so impressed with quality, replaced 12 year old which had lost alarm setting, 23 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We moved here in 2001 and needed a dual alarm clock, we get up at different times, hence the dual alarm. Our original Roberts was just as we needed, but the radio was tinny so never used. When the alarm stopped going off, it was obviously time for a new one.

No hesitation in buying another Roberts Radio Dual Alarm, and the different style and display is large and easy to read, better than it's predecesor. A bit fiddle to set the radio pre-sets, persevere is the answer. The sound is such an improvement over the last one, 12 years of improvement is clearly enjoyed. The radio is clear, crisp and easy to use once you see how it is set.

Although now in seperate rooms, I am not the easiest of people to share a bed with, tossing and snoring doesn't make for restful sleep, the dual alarm is still very useful. The setting and activating is straight forward, I was pleased to see the side switch had been retained. The first alarm is set for 5.18am which is my workday get-up time, whilst we use the other for when we need to get up earlier than usual on non-work days.

So, need a dual alarm which is easy to set, a decent sound from the radio, and control over the brightness of the display, then this fits the bill. Oh, and the alarm is a double bleep that gradually gets louder, and easily wakes you from deep sleep with the clock face becoming brighter as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars It's okay, possibly, if you are Chinese, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many sellers of this item, so really, its pot luck if you get a good one or a bad one.

Firstly, the instructions are very poor, pidgeon English and incomplete. It says at one point to 'reset' the camera, but now where does it tell you how or where to do the reset.

Secondly, the covers for the USB socket and memory card socket are flimsy, likely to fall off with much use.

Lastly, mine didn't work properly, the function buttons didn't access the memory, so I was unable to change from Chinese to English.

Verdict: looks and feels cheap, picture quality on the monitor wasn't too bad but never tried on the computer. Overall, in todays quality driven world, this item lets the seller down, don't touch with a barge poll, spend a bit more.
