5.0 out of 5 stars Bit expensive but does the job well, 26 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bit expensive for what it is...but...trying to find one of these Y splitters is neigh on impossible where I Iive, so I went ahead and bought it anyway and saved money on fuel trying to find one.It was however well made and did the job perfectly without the need for any jubilee clips without any drips on my garden hose system..Cheers


RAIN "MICRO" 2 Dial Single-Port Digital Tap Timer

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed feeling on this watering timer., 23 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this timer after doing much reading and reviewing on such products..Upon arrival I found the plastic cover was broken off and I was intending to send it back...but thought other wise and decided to go ahead and fit it..I discovered that where you have to screw the device onto an outside tap it was way too large and needed a reducer...I was not happy as these are not that simple to find,plus I would have expected one to be inside the box..I have a standard brass tap fitting which thousands of people use,but this will NOT fit so be aware of this.

After sorting the tap fitting out my next step was to insert the batteries...and this was not as easy as expected...3 screws have to be removed, and they were tight....'Very Tight'... and inside I found a cartridge style fitment in which to insert 3 AAA batteries...but don't pull it out too far or you will pull the wires off...and once inserted I proceeded to set the timer...I thought at first it was broken as the water would not turn off in the OFF position,but it turns out that you have to wait a few seconds for the device to make any start/stopping of the water flow....in other words...it's not instant...and as another reviewer mentioned...the device starts the process of watering from the point of setting it.

You may be wondering why I kept it and not returned it...Well...Firstly...it was fairly well made for the money...it does turn on and off precisely when set...there was no water leaks once fitted...and it has a good battery life of 6 months plus using good batteries such as duracell..Finally...the price was not bad for a punt..For now I'm giving 3 stars and will re value my rating after my long holiday if anything has gone wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb quality 'Y' hose pipe connection, 23 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb 'Y' hose pipe junction and well made...the rubber touch material was a great touch and helps for a great grip when needed...After fitting the hose there were NO leaks whatsoever and that was a great sign of quality...It maybe a little more then most cheaper ones out there but it's worth it..Recommended product..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Very strong burnt on grease remover, 12 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used correctly this product is brilliant and remove those hard baked on greasy stains you have inside your oven and cooker top with ease...it's a bit difficult to use on the inside grill bars when removed but this can be done carefully with the use of a plastic sheet laid out.Sometimes you might have to do more then one application with some burnt on marks,but that's to be expected..but this WILL get rid of them eventually...One thing I will stress is USE the gloves provided as it's not friendly to skin and of course you will have to buy more gloves as the ones supplied are only enough for a couple of uses...I've had lots of success with this product and I'm sure you will too...and it's a great price compared to some of these catalogue places selling it..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for £20 quid so far..and used for another purpose, 11 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm giving 5 stars based on the fact I've had it a month and so far so good, I will change this star rating if anything un-towards happens...However...I have not used it for the said purposes (the basic model with the fixing kit for bathroom extraction)...instead I have used it for extracting warm/hot air from my oven/hob to stop my hob from shutting down for safety reasons..I recently purchased an Induction hob and the heat from the oven when both on, sometimes causes my hob to shut down for safety reasons and this has done the trick perfectly...and for £20 quid it's a bargain...I fitted a 3 pin plug to turn it on and off when needed and I already had an sds drill to fit the extraction piping which was pretty straight forward for your more experienced DIY'r...The fan itself seems pretty well made,albeit it basic and care must be taken when tightening the screws to fit to the wall...you don't want to crack the casing as I feel some might have done..You get all the fittings required for fitting through a wall or a window and some rubber sealing which should suffice...Recommended...Cheers

1.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTE RUBBISH!!!... Don't bother with this, 15 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a punt for the money...Don't bother...it's utter crap.!!..I'm just glad it didn't cost anymore..!...I must have fitted over 30 screen protectors in my time and this was the worst ever I have encountered..Applied it maticulously clean and peeled the layer off and it just didn't stick at all..I pushed and smoothed to no avail...Rubbish...absolute rubbish...!!!...They just don't make a good Hardened screen protector anymore like they used...9H..Phttt...correct sizes are a joke and as for protection...just take your chances and use the screen itself...your better off not wasting your money on any of them...especially this one..Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars It winds your watch's as well as more expensive models, 14 Mar. 2017
First off...I did not actually buy this model from CKB as such...I'd actually purchased a lower model and I bought it on the description it had Bi-directional winding which it hadn't and has since been rectified, so I was sent this as a replacement,which I'm very happy with...I'd also like to mention that they are great company to deal with and dealt with the issue very promptly.

When this actually arrived it was about the same size as the other but obviously it was portrait not landscape in stature..The cost of this winder is reflective on the materials used, which are plastic,but it still looks smart and does the job in hand very well...One thing I will say right away is...it's quiet,and the controls give quite a selection of winding methods to choose from as the description implies,so I won't go into details on that as it's on the site..and at least one of them should suit your needs to keep your mechanical watch wound to perfection..I actually have several watch winders and this was a replacement for one that had given me many years of service and just decided to stop working,and this has filled that gap perfectly...If you want a more expensive look then you'll have to pay a Lot more then this and they won't wind your watch any different,but that's down to the individual..I have a watch winder that cost in excess of £200 (one watch) and although it looks superb and it winds my watch no more different to this one..If there's a niggle to point out it would be the actual part that holds your watch.It works by pushing in the spring loaded latch at the rear of the holder and placing your watch over it and then it expands to hold the watch secure...which it does well...but if you were to keep placing and removing the watch regular I'm not sure how long this mechanism might last...luckily for me I don't wear the watches often in question which will be kept wound,they are collection models..

Over all...this watch winder is perfect for the money and should keep your auto watches wound well whether they be clockwise or anti-clockwise...Cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compliment for your LG G5., 9 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to compliment my LG G5 and I'm glad I did.This is a genuine spare battery and doubles as a charger for other phones and peripherals that might need a top up...I can't understand why some have moaned about it not coming with a lead as it doesn't state it does..plus they moan about it not being fast charge (no battery pack is) ..it's exactly what it says it is and no more...A bargain accessory for your LG G5..cheers

5.0 out of 5 stars Original part...but expensive., 9 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as a spare ready for when the one that come with the oven breaks...it's split and only a matter of time before i use this well made Original spare.This IS an original Samsung oven door rubber seal and it fits perfect and actually looks and feels better then the original...if i have a gripe,it's the cost..30 quid is ridiculous for a piece of rubber,but without it the oven is useless..cheers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great add on module for the keen photographer., 3 Mar. 2017
Before I review this module, I will say that I did not purchase this from Amazon due to the fact I bought it from Egypt at a greatly reduced price so this made it worth while buying.

I'm a keen photographer and I love the LG phones because their cameras are way better (in my opinion) then other phone manufacturers out there...so I decided to go ahead and buy this add on module for those days I go out and just take photos with my phone..Of course I use my real camera for the more serious pictures..but this phone can take some awesome shots when needed...anyway...The first thing I needed to do was charge the module as it has it's own built in power supply..and as some have mentioned it does actually top your phone up for about 5 mins when initially connected..but after this it looks after itself...Of course you cannot use your phone cover should you have one fitted ...leaving it to any knocks or drops...the price you have to pay to use this module,but it;s worth it..Once fitted you have full control of taking photos and using the zoom with a jog wheel...I found it quite positive,unlike some who said it was a bit willy nilly...I didn't find this...I found it quite responsive and accurate...What I liked the most was the fact you could get a good grip of your phone and using it one handed was a doddle and it felt more secure then just the camera itself...Is it a gimmick..?...I don't think so on a personal level...but that's because I'm a keen photographer...the casual user will probably think different...but everyone has their opinion...Like I said earlier...I got it at a much reduced price so it was a sweeter deal for me and I like it ...a lot...my one star reduction was simply due to the fact I can't use my phone case as well....Cheers.
