Bulk Hardware 40mm Combination Padlock with Resettable 4-Digit Combination - Black
Bulk Hardware 40mm Combination Padlock with Resettable 4-Digit Combination - Black
Price: 5.99

1.0 out of 5 stars What are you trying to secure?, 3 Aug 2014
These locks can be forced very, very easily without even thinking about working out the combination and can be cut with the cheapest of cutters - other reviewer have mentioned it - I have experienced it and it's not a huge amount of fun.
Buy something from a branded make that is made of quality materials and design - think about the maths. Is a 5 lock (with a hefty profit margin) your valuables, whatever they may be are worth?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brambles prepare to meet thy doom, 17 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An amazing device - this has been busily being set to work chewing effortlessly through my vast bramble patches, some of which have stems at lest an inch in diameter. The long reach enables the early attacks to be made and once in this little beast of wonder makes mincemeat (metaphorically) of the swines. I'm amazed at both the power and life that the battery provides (well over an hour of continuous chewing). I originally got this to keep my cotoneaster hedge and buddleia at bay but it is it's bramble devouring skills that are to be worshipped. Rejoice in technology and the power of the lithium battery. What times whe live in.

5.0 out of 5 stars and the clouds lift....., 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vapor Trails (Remixed) (Audio CD)
After a decade of dipping in and out of the wall of noise that made the original such a beast to handle here we have, 'as if by magic' (though I'm sure a huge amount of hours were put into this) a crystal clear, mush free version. Still with oodles of power, I would actually say more power, the key point is it's now listenable to when your not in a beast head of a mood and it sounds..... so well....... so bloody wonderful. There's something at times painfully joyful that comes out of this remix that was just lost in the original 'monster'. Possibly the original thrash mix was right for the band then and this mix now? - it really is like a new album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strange times - but just download it., 8 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There's something magical about this version of the cycle, hence a 'Penguin Guide' key recording being awarded to it. Kempff's versions just reaches out to the listener and I feel like I'm discovering these works afresh. Amazing music performed sublimely and the recording quality is pretty darn good too. A real no brainer of a download at this ridiculously low price. Reading the discussions about this ludicrously cheap collection, DG wont be happy but I'm sure it's all legal and I'm sure the last 50 odd years of selling the cycle for 50 has more than paid off their production costs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 10 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Goodness me. I've not listened to Butterworth's songs for a couple of decades and I stumble upon this gem and kick myself for what i've been missing. This is indeed high, high beauty, the songs are so perfectly rendered, the diction and delivery of voice and piano quite wonderful. I guess I've nothing really to add to previous reviews but i write anyway as this recording just deserves to be listened too. I do agree completely that the reverb on the voice is a bit too much and as a result renders the delivery a little cold, it might not even be reverb, just recorded in an echoey place (i've only the MP3 download so miss out on the sleeve notes) but the warmth of the voice and the passion in the delivery wins it back and a lot lot more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lovely images - CBBC voice over, 9 Jun 2012
This review is from: Great Rift [DVD] (DVD)
Can't grumble about the cinematography which is simply stunning at times but who wrote this script? Anthromorphic dross, and scientifically incorrect drivel - beginning within the first sentences of the series with a claim that some baboons in ethiopia live higher than any other primate in the world ....well how about good old Homo sapiens in the Himalayas ????? and continuing with the same poorly researched/dumbed down drivel placing human emotions onto just about anything that has legs. If only there was an option to turn off the voiceover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent frame, dodgy hammock, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good item for the price - read all the other reviews and none are wrong. The frame itself seems very solid, surprisingly so for the price, the provided hammock quite the opposite, yes it bottoms out unless you are a human bubble or twist it and tighten it till eventually you don't bottom out (I'm 70kg) - Best to think of the provided hammock as a spare/freebie and buy a decent hammock and all will be fine. Some very useful tips in the other reviews about taping over the unused hook holes to reduce water entry/rust if your keeping the frame outside and I've popped a 2m section of foam pipe lagging over the base section so that if my young family fall off the hammock they'll bounce - quite a useful tip for adults as well. You really can't complain for the price, oh and the delivery was superb, well communicated and within 48hrs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great little head torch, 15 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this little torch - it's very light, the light is superb, the battery life is far better than stated ( a refreshing turn up for the books) and it's very comfortable. I'm a man of many head torches and this little beast has become the preferred choice over my far more expensive silva and petzl options when I'm just popping out for an hour or so into the mirk. Exceptional value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great find, 12 Mar 2012
Wonderful stuff - superb percussive guitar playing. Skilfully arranged tunes beautifully arranged and sung with plenty of skill. Some classic songs given a blast of fresh energy .... and now back to the guitar playing - as a bit of a strummer myself this is very impressive stuff - just try 'The Lowlands of Holland' for a quite superb display of high energy acoustic work - hardly what you'd expect in that song ! - but it works a dream. I know nothing at all about the band but this album has really made my month musically.
