4.0 out of 5 stars Very neat switch but no wiring diagram included., 26 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very neat switch which requires only a small space to fit. It works perfectly in my kit car. The only issue I had was that there are multiple connectors on the switch with no wiring diagram included. Luckily I know an electrician who tested it for me and advised which connectors to use otherwise I would have been struggling.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works for small punctures, 26 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The nearly new tyre on my wife's Honda suffered several small slow punctures from 3 pin nails stuck in it. I took it to a tyre supplier and they said it could not be repaired because the nails were within a few inches of each other and the repair patches would overlap. They offered me a new tyre at £115. For around £10 I thought it would be worth trying this product. Having used Slime for many years in cycle tyres I'm confident in it's ability to seal small punctures.
I installed the slime as per the instructions which was easy and it instantly sealed the small punctures. After 2 weeks there has been no loss of pressure and I'm hopeful I can continue to use the tyre until the end of its wear life now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vent mounting unsuitable, 23 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hoping this "universal" vent mounted cradle would be suitable for my Nexus 7 in several cars I own. The Nexus fits fine in the cradle but the vent mounting is no good in my cars, a Toyota and a Honda. The spring loaded clip does not go far enough into the vent to latch on properly so I will have to think again. The unit is good value for money and fairly robustly made but the all important vent clip lets it down unfortunately.

5.0 out of 5 stars it looks smart is easy to clean and doesn't show marks, 18 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a large entrance mat that wouldn't slip and move on a wooden floor and that wasn't so thick that the door could open and close freely. This item has achieved both of these needs perfectly, it looks smart is easy to clean and doesn't show marks. Very impressed with the quality and price I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very strong bracket, 4 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This bracket is seriously heavy duty which was ideal for my installation in a seaside area where storms and strong winds had broken the existing lighter bracket. It does not come with fixing bolts, the holes in the bracket are big enough to accommodate 7mm dia bolts with a 10mm wall plug. This made for a very strong fixing. i'd highly recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works a treat, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very simple and effective way of removing the filter. I bought it for my Mk1 Mazda MX5 but found it also fits a Honda Civic and no doubt most Japanese cars.
The only comment I would make is that you also need a 3/8 ratchet or wrecker bar as well to use it. The packaging it comes in has a rivet through the square hole that the bar fits in so you need to remove the rivet (a flat blade screwdriver achieved this) before using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Proven Results, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using this product for over a year. It's the only one I have found that actually controls blanket weed effectively. It does need regular re application as the effect does wear off in time. It's worth it's weight in gold compared to hand removing blanket weed which I used to do with depressing regularity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box, 19 Jun. 2013

This phone is great as an extra handset in the bedroom. The most important feature for me is you can turn the ringer off. As I work night shifts it saves being woken up during the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful piece of kit, 19 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this GPS after having seen it recommended in CTC cycle magazine. I also purchased the motorbike mounting bracket which fits securely to the stem of my mountain bike and a lanyard bracket to keep it secuely on my belt when walking. I have downloaoded and installed Open Street Map from the internet which is free, rather than paying for OS maps. I have found OSM to be very useful as although it is much less detailed than OS it does include useful data such as street names and national cycle network that OS omits. I have tested it out by planning some routes on the bikehike website and downloading these as a GPX file. The route then appears as a highlighted line on the map making it very easyto follow. It seems to be very accurate and fast to lock on your location, even under trees. You can zoom in and out depending on the detail or complexity of the route. The screen is quite small but very clear, even in sunlight. After dark you can use the backlight. The battery life from 2 x AA rechargeables is excellent, easily getting a full day use from one set. All in all a great value GPS, well made and should hopefully last several years.
