5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, functions as required, recommended., 4 April 2016

I needed this for my new Dell XPS13 to work with a HDMI TV for work presentations. Having spent some time looking for the official Dell product - which is incredibly difficult to find and way more expensive, I went with this instead and so far am very pleased. It feels well built and all the ports work as they should. The design is quite attractive and a good match to my laptop.

I bought this to use with a BT Converse 2300 Corded Telephone so I could keep my hands free to use my computer while on a conference call from my home-office. Comfortable to wear for longer calls and helps the clarity of the call.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of features, perfect for home-office use., 4 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this phone and a TH100 Professional Headset as I regularly phone conference from home. I chose this model specifically for the hands-free function and the ability to use with a headset so I can continue to use my computer while on a call. The phone fits a standard domestic phone socket and has a number of features which I will never need, but the hands-free/headset/secrecy(mute) functions are great. Another useful function is the ability to increase the volume of the call which impacts the handset, headphones and hands-free. My only criticism is that if anything maximum volume is still relatively quiet so whilst this is OK for the headset, if you were using hands-free with a number of people around the phone it might not be loud enough for everyone.

Just the right size and cheaper than getting additional keys for my older padlock.

Just fitted these over the Easter weekend to tension some climbing plant wires along a 6 metre long section of garden wall. They do the job very well with the hook end hooking onto a vine eye and the plant wire through the other. The range of adjustment is between 3 and 4 cm so it tensions the wire nicely.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flawed design, broke after a few minutes. Not recommended., 4 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to automatically close our front gate and stop our dog escaping onto the road when one of the multitude of delivery men fail to shut it behind them.
As another reviewer has noted the installation instructions are very poor but it's not too difficult to work out how to fit. It is a bit fiddly setting the spring tension particularly at higher tensions and a 2nd lever is really needed. I used a bradawl which fitted nicely inside the tension holes.
Our gate is well within the 40Kg specification of this product and although it gently closed our metre wide wooden gate I was a bit disappointed that it didn't exert enough force to cause the gate to latch or even hold it closed against a strong breeze. My disappointment grew rapidly when within 4 or 5 operations of the gate the "washer" which holds the closure arm in place popped off and the closure arm flopped and fell off. Looking more carefully at the construction the "washer" (because that's all it seems to be) appeared to be held in place purely by friction when at a minimum it should have been welded. So when it was put under any strain from the spring it literally popped off. Given that the closure arm is intended to be adjustable so you can effectively lift it up to allow the gate to swing freely, this appears to be a very poor design and a regular bolt, washer and lock nut would have been very much more effective and robust while adding just a few pence to the cost. Picture attached to show the closure arm and "washer". Thankfully it was no problem returning it via Amazon and getting my money refunded. Maybe I was just unlucky to get a dud but I'm now buying a gas pressurized gate closer at over twice the price of the Gah-Alberts as a safer bet.

Bought to store kindling, matches and firelighters near the log stove and secured so our dog can't get to them. He particularly likes the wood shaving in wax firelighters! This is an attractive small basket, perfect for what we needed.

Great little lighter which does work well with the nozzle pointing down when trying to light candles and tea lights from above. Equally good for lighting our log stove and a BBQ. Lasted all Christmas and still s bit of gas left in it. Haven't tried to refill yet but should be straight forward.
Construction feels pretty plasticky but at this price that's to be expected.

Decent quality and loner lasting than standard lights, on average 6 to 8 hour life. Same diameter as standard lights but about half as deep again - 38mm as I recall rather than about 25mm.
