Yale Dummy Siren Bell Box (DUMMY BOX)
Yale Dummy Siren Bell Box (DUMMY BOX)
Offered by Box Limited
Price: £17.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Real Siren Cover., 7 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have installed the Yale Home Alarm kit,and wanted a matching "dummy "siren cover for the rear garden side of the house.
This is the actual Yale Siren Cover without its batteries and electrics,so obviously an identical match.
The flashing LED's on the real siren only activate if the alarm itself is also activated,so I don't see the point in putting a permanently flashing LED in this dummy siren box( you can purchase one separately if you think it may add a further deterrent, however.)
Good value,and very easily fitted.

Salter 9106 Glass Body Analyser Scale Black
Salter 9106 Glass Body Analyser Scale Black
Price: £26.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value Body Composition Analyser., 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Long established first class British Manufacturer of scales and similar devices.
I use it as an essential part of my fitness training regime.I have used this machine for a couple of years now and recently bought another for my Grandson ,who follows a similar training regime,and had to borrow mine.On checking consistency of readings between the two machines,they are "spot on."
Users are often confused by these analysers,due to the fact that our body composition is in a constant state of flux for obvious reasons(think about it !),and they take readings much too often.It is normal for our weight and body fat etc to fluctuate over the course of each day by two or three pounds.
The devices are not precise scientific instruments of "pin point accuracy",but give accurate weight and reasonable"estimates"of body fat etc (to within about 2 percent accuracy.) You need an expensive clinical full body scan for greater accuracy.
The effective way to use them is to take your readings once per week at the same time
(I take mine on rising each Sunday morning)
Keep a record of your readings and compare them to next weeks figures to see if you are gaining or
loosing weight (body fat, muscle, bone and hydration)This will give you a fairly accurate assessment of the trend and amount of gain or loss in these categories.
This gives you information essential to planning your fitness training programme for best strategic effect.
For dieters it is obviously important to correct your weight ,but more important ,to loose as little muscle mass as possible,while reducing body fat to healthy levels.
The booklet provided gives good basic body composition guide figures and percentages for age and sex etc,and easy set up instructions.
The device incorporates an "Athlete" setting,( many more expensive devices do not)which is essential for
the appropriate serious fitness trainers among us,and has settings for up to10 users so serious trainers and normal family members can all use the same analysers once programmed in.
I have had much more expensive analysers,but none have been as good as this great value Salter
device,which I am happy to recommend.

Klean Kanteen Sports Cap 3-Black
Offered by UK Outdoor Store
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Improved version., 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great sports drinks cap,and an improvement on the earlier version,by the addition of a tiny "valve like"
pin hole ,which allows easier flow of liquids.
Long lasting,tough,and also fit other makes of metal sports drinks bottles.


Olympus Stylus SZ-15 Digital Super Zoom Camera - Red (16MP, 24x Wide Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD
Olympus Stylus SZ-15 Digital Super Zoom Camera - Red (16MP, 24x Wide Optical Zoom) 3 inch LCD

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Versatile Zoom Compact Camera., 16 Jun. 2016
Have had this camera for two years now and have used it extensively
The real advantage of this compact is its pocket size ,great "zoom" feature,and effective image stabilisation.
Have had good results at maximum zoom ,even while hand held.(which was amazing for a camera at this price)
No doubt the Camera Buffs" will "Nit-Pick" and find "technical points" to criticise,( probably not relevant or particularly useful to the Amateur, and holiday pic's snapper at which this camera is targeted)
I have used all types of cameras over the past 50 years as an enthusiastic amateur,and no longer wish to carry bulky equipment.If you require a versatile camera mainly for holidays,which has
creative additional features to use if you wish,this is extremely good.Everything us mere mortals
will require is catered for in this small package,which can be conveniently carried in hand bag or pocket.
The creative features allow a lot of flexibility and special effects to be produced ,if you want to experiment with the more "Arty " effects available.
This is really not a video camera,and you should buy a specific more bulky,and expensive video device if this is your primary use.It is not bad on battery use,as you obviously have to allow for the driving of the long zoom lens,which you tend to use constantly, it is so useful)
(If you are away for a couple of weeks,take a spare battery,or a cheap charger in case of battery drain)
It is as well to do this for all similar cameras anyway)
You have a much better chance of catching that "spontaneous" easily missed shot,with one of these ,than the bulkier cameras with interchangeable lenses etc
So if you wish to frighten the tourists with lots of impressive gear ,get a big DSLR with lots of extra interchangeable lenses,and a donkey to carry them( Some wives seem to tolerate the job quite well)
This little camera does all I demand of it,and goes in my pocket for immediate use ,if anything
Interesting pops up.
Note,however,that all these cameras (that do not have a viewfinder built in )can suffer" glare and flare "on the screen in bright sunny conditions making it sometimes difficult to see how you compose, and zoom in on the subject.
For under £5 you can add an anti glare screen protector.
For under £10 you can then add a "flip up" screen shade,and both together should solve this problem
(This is such a common problem the various manufacturers could easily build these features in,but
none do at present)
A great little convenient photographic package for us amateurs with creative aspirations.
Olympus brought out the first compact cameras,and have always been leaders in this field.

Smart looking with good "clamp style" airtight top.
Keeps the true unpolluted taste of liquids kept in glass,and avoids the leaching of chemical traces that you can experience with plastic bottles.
Very well packaged,and speedy delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Solution to Screen Glare., 16 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very pleased with this simple shielding device.
Allows you to use your camera and its zoom control as normal,even in very bright sunshine.
Much better made than I expected ,easy to fit,very compact,and does not stop your camera fitting its case. Looks as though it has always been part of your camera,which makes you wonder why (for the
small cost involved ) they are not fitted as standard by Camera Manufactures,as all compact digitals
without a viewfinder seem to experience the very frustrating "Screen Glare" problem,which spoils your
enjoyment of your photography.
If you are having "Screen Glare" problems in sunny conditions you will not regret fitting one of these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Screen., 16 Jun. 2016

Seems to be a good quality screen,and is easy to fit.
Hopefully they will prove to be better than cheaper makes, some of which can be rather flimsy and
a bit of a struggle to fit correctly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile Drinks Flask., 24 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent Gym Sports Drink flask,and cap.
Good capacity at 750 mls keeps chilled drinks cold throughout your Work Out.(fits the holders on Gym
Exercise Machines fine.) The Gym use cap is long lasting,and replacements can be obtained on Amazon.
The steel body should last indefinitely if looked after properly, and over time will be more cost effective than having lots of disposable short lived cheap plastic Gym bottles.
Keeps coffee hot for several hours using the standard cap.
Looks good in the steel finish,and is very easily cleaned.
The price is not cheap,but is competitively priced for such a good quality "double skin "flask with the two caps provided.
Also good for Hill Walking with quick access if suspended from a strap on your ruck sac.
A useful attractive and versatile drinks flask made in top quality non reactive stainless steel.
Speedy delivery,and well packaged.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality and Excellent Value ?, 24 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Did not expect such a versatile,and well made small case for the £15 I paid.
Did not want to spend a lot on a case ,which is only for a train journey,and two nights in a hotel for my
wife and me,so decided to chance this purchase.Very pleased I did,and I am sure it will come in very useful in future.
The case is slightly larger,is more versatile,better constructed,and nicer quirky design than others we looked at locally,which retailed at £25 to £35.
Speedy delivery,and very well packaged.
Far exceeded expectations.
