Velcro VEL-EC60329 50mm x 92cm Brand Adjustable Wide Strap - Black
Velcro VEL-EC60329 50mm x 92cm Brand Adjustable Wide Strap - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Bye-bye bungee cords on my bike!, 8 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was sick of being whacked by flying bungee cords that never seemed to be the right length to secure items to my bicycle rack, or damaged items by cutting into them - enter these velcro straps.

I use these to secure my folded and baggged suit to my bike rack for commuting (use a Free-fold carrier) 50mm wide so they don't leave marks or creases on the suit. Because they are thin they don't get in the way of a pannier bag (which bungee hooks do). The velcro gives a secure hold that is easy to release (no flying ends). The plastic loop helps pull the strap tight before securing.

I can't imagine why i didn't get these years ago.

brilliant product - was sick of charging batteries and after leaving them for a while not being sure if they were still okay to use - problem solved with this little gadget

2.0 out of 5 stars Parts for assembly missing from box., 5 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Moving house and needed a sturdy bench to work on - I was very disappointed to find when following the instructions that there are parts missing. There are separators that are not among the packets that were in the box.

I specifically bought Black and Decker thinking it would be quality checked to make sure all the parts are included - not the case apparently. Maybe why it was cheap.

I just hope the other one for nearly £80 has all the parts.


Thermos Stainless Steel King Hammerton Food Flask, 0.47L
Thermos Stainless Steel King Hammerton Food Flask, 0.47L

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for winter lunches, 16 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what is says - keeps things hot for several hours. Good wide mouth for getting food in (the flask not me).
I have been using this to take hot soup/stew for lunch at work and no longer have to queue up for the microwave - just heat it up at home put it in the flask and at lunch just put it in a bowl and eat.
The spoon works well - mainly use that when I am down the allotment having lunch. The flask has been sitting in the cold at the plot for 4-5 hours but the food is still piping hot come lunch time.
Nice and compact as well.


92cm Snowflake Design Door Hanger Silver Card Holder Christmas Decoration (CH7)
92cm Snowflake Design Door Hanger Silver Card Holder Christmas Decoration (CH7)

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad design for Christmas card holder, 6 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The glitter paint on the rack sheds constantly and gets all over you hands if you touch it.

The attached rings to hold the cards are rigid and set at an angle from the vertical such that they don't hold cards in place. Cards just fall out of the rack if the door is opened or closed.

Cards have to balanced comletely upright and centered so they sit in front of each other obscuring the previous card - expected a system where cards could be placed at an angle (a leaf arrangement) on the holder. Cards just fall out if you try this.

Back to string and pegs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid built and non-stick, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Made banana bread in this and no burning of the sides like my other thinner metal loaf pans.
I still lined the bottom though - but probably could have not bothered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great base layer for cycling, 12 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Use this as a base layer for commuting to work on a bicycle.
Keeps me warm and more importantly dry and it is so thin that it can be rinsed out and dry before the next day.

May use one running but will probably have to tape the nips first

5.0 out of 5 stars Prize for a bake-off, 5 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived well packaged and in great condition.
I thought that this was a perfect prize for a bake-off this October:)

Fabric is strong - and the transfer Br and Ba are printed clearly and attached well. Hopefully it will stand up to quite a few washes before it starts to peel.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not fit 32mm corrugated pipe, 7 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nicely made product but I bought these to fit 32mm corrugated pipe and they are very loose - will try to secure with some clamps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good garden twine, 9 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wish I had found this earlier - used thinner ply twine to hold up tomatoes in greenhouse but have swapped over to this as much stronger and less likely to cut stems.

Great to use outdoors as well as can just cut off the supports and leave on the ground to rot in - unlike nylon zip ties or plastic twine that will hang around for decades.

Came packaged simply and not is a huge oversized package - well done.
