Bindaboo Extra Tall Walk Through, Self-Closing Dog and Pet Security Gate, BlackThe gate fits most standard doorways and is ideal for other openings in the kitchen and stairway. No tools are necessary, simply attach the tension knobs and adjust them according to your doorway or opening. The pet security gate acts as a fence that will prevent your pets from entering areas that you don’t want them to or roaming your home and getting into trouble. It is even safe enough to be used as a barrier that will protect babies and toddlers from going into dangerous areas where they could possibly be harmed. The gate is not a solid wall, pets will be able to see into other rooms and feel like they are part of the action. Unlike other barriers that require you to step over them once they are in place, you can walk through this gate with a simple one-handed motion to unlock, lift and swing it open in both directions…then just let it automatically close and lock! The Bindaboo Walk Through, Self-Closing Dog and Pet Security Gate is a functional device essential for homes with pets or toddlers.

PC TrickleSwitch Energy Saver

If you are using or plan to purchase the PC TrickleSaver you may want to consider the PC TrickleSwitch as an Accessory. The TrickleSaver turns PC USB peripheral devices Off when you turn your PC Off and On when you turn your PC On. The TrickleSwitch takes energy savings a step further. It attaches to the TrickleSaver, and allows you to turn all of your PC USB peripheral devices On and Off manually at anytime while your PC is On – simply press the button on top of the TrickleSwitch. By allowing you to manually switch PC USB peripheral devices On/Off and to supply power to them only when required, you can significantly reduce the amount of ‘vampire power’ consumed when your PC is On. This is especially helpful for those that put their PC in standby mode, in which case the USB is still active and wouldn’t turn off the switched outlet. The TrickleSwitch connects directly to a PC via a standard USB connector and a PC TrickleSaver plugs into a USB connector on the product. Read more

Don’t Fuss With Changing the Speed of Your Windshield Wipers as the Rain Pressure Changes!

Hydreon RT-50A Rain Tracker Windshield Wiper ControlWe have all done it–we lower the speed of our windshield wipers as we drive through a patch of clear skies, and then we get to an area where there is huge downpour so then we have to increase the speed. Having to keep changing the speed of your windshield wipers can quite annoying and not to mention distracting while trying to drive in already hazardous conditions. Turning your wipers on and off is a nuisance when it’s not raining enough to justify leaving them on, and even the intermittent setting is too frequent. It would also be convenient if your wipers simply turned themselves on when needed, leaving your hands and mind free to drive your car. The Rain Tracker needs only five connections to your car, and the entire system can be installed in an hour or so. So if your car doesn’t already come equipped with automatic sensing wipers, don’t worry this is the answer! Make sure you get this before we truly see high amounts of rain. Read more
