AA Heavy Duty Tow Rope
AA Heavy Duty Tow Rope
Offered by Sivitec_Direct

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but little things let it down, 22 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Overall this is a reasonable bit of kit but with a few niggles that let it down.

The first issue is that the hooks are quite small and the spring loaded opening takes up too much space inside the loop of the hook when pushed open, meaning that it doesn't fit over some towing eyes. For instance, I was able to connect it easily to the towing eye of the car that had broken down but not to the car doing the towing, as the metal eyelet was slightly thicker. Due to the position under the rear bumper, I then wasn't able to able to form a loop with the rope either, as suggested in the instructions if no suitable towing eyelet is available. I had this issue on my last tow rope from Halfords, with the hook being a fraction too small. So either I am missing something or they are all made by the same people or to a particular design standard.

The only other minor gripe (which would only be a half star loss if it were possible) is the storage bag. It's handy to be able to store it neatly, but is different to the one pictured and appears to be a fraction smaller. As such, you have to roll it up extremely neatly to get it in the bag. If they had given it just a little more material, it would be so much easier! A minor grumble, but a grumble none the less!

Overall, I would say the ribbon design is superior to the round rope style, even just from the point of view of storage and the bright colour is a very good idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the trick, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for my Mum to replace the kitchen foil she was using. Initially she though it was a complete waste of money and wouldn't be an improvement over Lidl's finest silver foil, but a few weeks in she was convinced. To convince a true pessimist they must be good, so I have no hesitation in handing out 5 starts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having seen these in a shoe shop on the high street at over twice the price, I was slightly expecting there to have been corners cut somewhere. However, they seem well made and are attractive but most importantly, keep your shoes in great shape. As a general point, I've never used shoe trees before but wouldn't be without them now. They are definitely worth the money to prolong the life of your shoes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't do better for the money, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having expected to pay £100 upwards for a well-made bracket, this represents superb value for money. Ours is holding a 40 inch Samsung LED tv and there isn't the slightest hint of the arm straining under the weight. Given a TV is an expensive item, you want to feel assured that it's not going to come crashing off the wall and this certainly gives you confidence. Time will tell how the moving parts stand up to prolonged use, but for now its 5 stars and no reservations.


Megaman GU10 6 Watt LED PAR16 Dimming 2800 k Light Bulb
Megaman GU10 6 Watt LED PAR16 Dimming 2800 k Light Bulb
Price: £10.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bulbs, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These bulbs are great value, producing a bright, warm light with a good beam angle. The fact that they are dimmable only makes them better value for money. There are some orange coloured spots inside the bulb, visible when the lights are off. This isn't the most attractive feature but the finish of the glass is still better looking than most being subtle rather than overly modern. My only word of caution is that they wouldn't fit into the IP65 rated downlights in our bathroom, so we are stuck with halogen until I can find an LED that fits.

4.0 out of 5 stars Attractive bowls, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fish Bowl, Black (Misc.)
These novel bowls are something a bit different from the standard fare. We already had one in green from a different brand that cost twice as much but these are identical, all except for the embossing of the word 'Hing' on the bottom of the bowls. That is half a reason for deducting a star, because the embossed name is a bit of a food trap when you come to clean it. The other half star is lost for the imbalance caused if your cat stands on the 'tail' of the bowl, causing it to tip up. If you've put too much water in, it will be all over the floor. If your cat is smarter than ours, then it won't pose a problem!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 19 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Think Diesel
I run a fleet of cars and despite a sticker on the dash, one on the outside of the fuel flap and one on the inside, people still manage to put petrol into our diesel cars! Since installing these, we've only had one misfuel.

OK so it's a little bit embarrassing with it 'bing-bongs' and stern sounding gent warning you to put diesel in but if it saves you a whacking great bill then it's job done. The only thing I would say is that in isolation, they are loud enough but on a noisy petrol station forecourt they can be hard to hear. As i said, we still had one misfuel despite the warning being in place.

They stick well on the inside of the flat - none have fallen off so far. They are light activated and seem to work well at night, even under dimmer forecourt lighting.

The plastics are by no means premium but then neither is the price. We had 5 of them for a study and all worked as they should without issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and attractive for a litter tray, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This tray is well made and about as attractive as litter trays can get I suppose. The removable rim is very useful for holding the bin liners in place that we use to line the tray. It also comes with a scoop, which can be a bit of a pain to clean but it's no different to any other scoop on the market.

There is a smaller version that we had for when our kittens were very small but they soon outgrew it and when they stood on the rim, even at 3-4 months old, they would tip the tray up and spill the litter. So if you are considering this or the smaller one, I would say choose this, as they will grow into it very fast!

Overall, decent value and recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fussy kittens love this food, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have two fussy kittens that will lick the jelly off the likes of Felix and Whiskas but leave the meat. I've also tried lots of other foods like Animonda and Grau which are supposed to be pretty good, but they've turned their noses up at that too. (I can't blame them - it looks like corned beef!) Even Lily's Kitchen is a take it or leave it but not so with James Wellbeloved!

They lick the bowl clean each and every time, even without receiving a variety of flavours from meal to meal and day to day. OK so it costs more, but given how much they otherwise waste of cheaper foods, it can't be far off amounting to the same thing. Also, as I think some else mentioned, their ablutions don't require you to open all the windows in the house. A definite upside with the cost of heating your home being what it is! Five stars and both paws up from Lola and Jesse!
