NITE IZE KEYRACK LOCKER (STAINLESS)
NITE IZE KEYRACK LOCKER (STAINLESS)
Offered by Pet Supply Company USA
Price: £7.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice key or gadget organiser, but heavy on pocket linings, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very neat key ring. It allows for any attached key or gadget to be securely held or removed with ease. It is probably best clipped to a belt or bag. I have noticed holes developing in my trouser pockets since using this.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice, shiny doorknob, 23 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent piece of door furniture. I received the brass door know, steel bolt and a solid brass nut with a slotted head. The bolt needed a 10mm wood drill and the brass nut needed a 16 mm wood drill to countersink it partway into the door. I would have liked a brass washer to go with the nut as it would have made a neater finish. But that's me being picky.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sinister potato peeler, 11 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For a lefty it's easy to use. But it feels flimsy, unlike the Good Grips peeler. Also the potato eye remover seems to be located on the wrong side and scrapes my hand when peeling. Having whinged about that, it is a good, sharp peeler.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and cheerful Oriental cutlery, 17 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are a nice set of cutlery for Chinese or South East Asian food. Note that there is no knife. The spoon and fork are pressed steel. The chopsticks are joined in the middle via screw threads. This is not very well engineered but do fit together with a little 'brute force'.They fit nicely into the container, although there is some rattling. The spoon and fork are about 14cm/5.5 inches long and the chopsticks are 22.5cm/9 inches long. The container is 15cm/6 inches long.
Let's be honest... They are not fine dining material, but would be great for picnics or keeping at work for lunchtime.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat, easily adjustable picture hooks for STAS picture hanging system, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed to hang a set of photo frames from a STAS rail with perlon hanging cords. I found that these were very easy to adjust. I need to use two cords and attach the frames to each cord to stop them flapping around. These are good for smaller lightweight frames up to about 4Kg.

Great stuff. I use this to get the Curry House look on my Tandoori Chicken. Nice colour, no beetroot taste.


TomTom Adhesive Dash Disks

5.0 out of 5 stars These work well on my Zafira dashboard., 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got fed up with circles on the inside of my windscreen. SoI fitted one of these - they come as a two pack. You need a level piece of dashboard. My dash is textured, so I was a bit worried about it sticking on. I gave the dashboard a clean with computer screen cleaner and slapped the disc onto the dash. The sticky area is foam backed and seemed to stick okay. I left it for a day to be sure but I have had no problems with it gripping the TomTom to the dash. I still have circles on the windscreen. But that's because I am too lazy to give it a clean.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great device - but strap needs streamlining and the catch is 'something special', 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great device for monitoring daily activity and movement. It requires a simple set up - I used a Mac. Stick the wireless dongle in a USB port, register your device on the Fitbit website. Fill in the required info like height, weight and possibly stride length, and you're good to go. Tap the device twice and it gives you scale showing how far you have walked in 20% increments. It defaults to 10,000 steps and vibrates when you hit the target.
There is a usb charging cradle but no charger. Luckily I have spare chargers which take usb cables. I found that the charge lasts me 4-5 days. You do get a warning on the Fitbit website to recharge. The device is housed in a replaceable strap, so you can swap colours if that is your inclination. I don't like the square edge of the main strap body. A curved side would be less likely to catch on things. Also the catch is a 'triumph of form over function' and is a bugger to do up.

You wear the thing 24/7. You can set it into sleep mode and it will monitor your sleep - how restless you are and how often you wake. There are metal contacts on the device for charging when you remove it from the strap, so I wouldn't wear it for swimming etc. It should be okay in the shower but...I take it off for showering.

So what's it good for? Monitoring your day to day activity, like how much and how fast you have walked or run. It's not so good for other activities like cycling or weight training, so you need to update the website with details of any other activities.

If you do a lot of work on the website like inputting what you eat and adding information on your sporting activity you will get a good record of calories in and out. The website can link to other apps to suck in information and make use of other devices like wireless weighing scales and blood pressure meters. But if you are 'nerdy old school' you can manually add the information.

All in all I love the device, simple but effective. If they added a clock display, that would be great, but would probably eat up the battery. Just fix the catch and streamline the strap!
The website could do with some work. The food database is US, full of stuff you've never heard of. I haven't really played around with the reporting which is available as a premium option- you pay for it.
