I haven't set it up yet but according to the instructions everything is pre linked except the smoke detector and keyfob which are additions that are not standard to the alarm kit. the instructions say it is pretty easy to link them though. If you want the full spec google "Standard Alarm Kit - EF-KIT1" and the top link to the yale site will take you to a page that will allow you to download the PDF instructions.

I stopped buying premium brands when I found the stuff I could get from China for around the VAT on the premium item, was brighter and better. Aftersales is non-existent but in general the quality isn't that bad at all, but the fact I can get way more light for a lower cost, this makes more sense, imho.
mike
​ok fair brighter maybe, but better, seriously doubt that. the cheap and cheerful stuff from eBay or aliexpress China is ok (bought load from both), but quality is not a word would use.
These are designed to be handled roughly, worn for long periods of time, whilst running, SAR, and so on. The cheapies not so.
Quality isn't that bad is what I said, I've got around 6 bike lights that all convert to head torches, my original set were bought around 6 years ago and have probably done 1000s of miles in atrocious conditions in Manchester, still running fine on the original battery.
The only reason I upgrade is to get brighter newer LEDs, at the end of the day, being seen or being able to see is the most important reason behind a light like these, 220lm is frankly insulting at that price.
Of the ones I have these are some examples, although I can't vouch for the seller, but they give you an idea http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5000Lm-2x-CREE-XM-L-U2-LED-Front-Headlamp-Bicycle-Bike-Light-Torch-Headlight-/271686245623?hash=item3f41c31cf7:g:uEQAAOSwu-BWOwXg
Very, very bright, I use these on trails or areas without street lighting, battery isn't well waterproofed, so best to put a bag round them. I have one set of these I use throughout the summer (which usually means rain) at night to hunt for slugs in the garden, so around 1 hr per day for 2 or 3 months. These are probably the least reliable, I've had one battery fail (out of 5), 2 lights have failed, one of which shorted, got very hot and now no longer allows variation of the light output, but still works fine on full beam. The remaining lights still work. If buying these for cycling, buy two, so you've got a backup. Treat as an annual expense and you won't be disappointed, I'd estimate the lumens at more like 2000-3000 but not shoddy at all.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2000-Lm-CREE-XM-L-XML-T6-LED-Bicycle-Bike-Head-Light-Headlamp-Rechargeable-Light-/171938807992?hash=item28085a00b8:g:~7kAAOSwo0JWQb27
My oldest LED light is like this one, not as bright as the earlier ones, but nevertheless completely outstrips pretty much anything from a UK based company under £100. Mine has an older LED but the design seems good.http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cycle-Bike-Head-Bicycle-Light-Lamp-CREE-XML-XM-L-T6-LED-UK-Charger-3-Modes-/252402795293?hash=item3ac461031d:g:joEAAOSwoJZXRprX
Perhaps my favourite lights are similar to these, I couldn't find the listing I bought mine fromhttp://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2000LM-USB-CREE-XM-L-T6-L2-LED-Light-Front-Bike-Flashlight-Headlight-Headlamp-/221974352634?hash=item33aeb3d2fa:g:K58AAOSw5IJWd8at
These have the same spec and run off a USB battery pack, which is useful because you can use your own. My particular set cost around £6 without batteries, but came with a bulb cover, which turns the LED from a spot to a bulb, dead handy for camping.
These are just examples of cheap and cheerful LEDs that can be used as headlamps. I would say follow these rules and you'll be happy, in most cases they are pretty reliable and much better.
1) Never leave the battery pack charging unattended. When you feel the weight of the charger, you realise there's not much protection. If I can't find an alternative charger and have to use the supplied one, I charge in the kitchen next to the kettle so it's never unattended for long, I never charge overnight, just in case. The USB varieties of course don't have this problem.
2) On a bicycle I always carry a spare, some have a habit of dying without warning rather than getting dim, though I've found this is 50:50. I always carry a standard AA powered UK light for emergencies.
3) Don't believe the lumens advertised. Chinese sellers seem pretty lax when it comes to the truth, the lumens figure quoted is usually the max. the LED could deliver in ideal conditions, with a power supply way in excess of that supplied.
4) These are not lifetime purchases, if you get 2 or 3 years out of them be happy (if you're paying 1/4 the price for 10x the brightness, don't expect longevity), but with the way technology is moving, you might want to replace with newer brighter lights at that point anyway.
mike
Only 1 of your links work. As you say dont believe the lumens advertised, but your wrong on the max it could deliver. An xml t6 can only deliver a max of 1020lm driven at full power, most of the cheap chinese is only about 50%. So a 1800lm t6 will be more like 500lm (if your lucky).
The 5000lm dual XML U2, can only be driven at a max of about 1000lm and having 2 does gives twice the light either, so you are looking at about 800 emitter lumens max.
AS for newer tech, T6 has been out for a good 5 years now, so very old in led terms.
As for brighter is better, yeah other road users really love to have those lights blinding them.

What LED chip is in the SE07?

Subjectively I reckon I get 600 lumens from my T6, certainly in a dark room my photographic light meter reads the same as a Philips 650 lumen spot lamp moved to give the same beam radius. So maybe the Chinese lamps aren't so far from running the Crees at their maximum output, which considering the ease of driving an LED, it's not hard to achieve, I'm not entirely sure why we'd expect the Chinese lamps to be 50% down on power output. Regardless of anything else for 1/4 the price I get 2-3x the quoted output of the SE07.

As for being bright, that's surely the whole point of a light? A car headlamp is going to output in 1000s of lumens, so long as a bike light is used correctly and points down at the road, what's the problem, yeah there are those that cycle with them pointing to blind oncoming traffic, but equally well plenty of cars do the same, as a cyclist, I seem not to count as a road user where car users care about dipping.

I'm sure this is a lovely headlight and produces plenty of light, but you're paying a hefty premium for the name.

Not many road users up the side of a mountain where I use mine ;) I think battery life is far more valuable to a user than brightness. Also having that extra brightness spread over a wider area, so in effect it is the same brightness giving a wider field of view, might be useful in some circumstances. If brighter isn't better Tesco sell head torches for £5 and Poundland probably have some.

You can buy a heavy duty staple gun in Home Bargains/Wilko/B&M for less than a fiver


Is that your idea of a like for like comparison on staple guns or are you comparing tools with toys ?

You can buy a heavy duty staple gun in Home Bargains/Wilko/B&M for less than a fiver
just bought a yellow one of these from screwfix for £15, used it for fixing superquilt to roof batons with 14mm staples, worked really well. had to get the staples from homebase though, screwfix don't stock them, didn't make sense to me. can get thecstaple from amazon also quite cheap.

Would a staple with Nail gun be better?
anyone?

Depends on what you're doing but I think one that does both nails and staples is far more flexible.

Doing the backs on Ikea bookcases for example, using nails in the gun is super easy and takes just a couple minutes rather than manually having to hammer all the nails in.
Thank you, ordered.

This is £139 @ Screwfix, possibly your mixing this with the DCD795 which is a combi (hammer) drill ?
looks like £239.99 @ Screwfix

Had to double-check to ensure I wasn't imagining seeing this.

Dundee Screwfix Trade Counter have this for £139, definitely the brushless version that is reduced to £199 as per OP

LEATHERMAN Rebar & Micra Multi-Tool Combo £49.99 Delivered from UKToolCentre.co.uk

The Rebar usually retails at around £50 on its own, and the Micra at £25+, so a steal at this price! Part of Leatherman's heritage range, these classic multi-tools come in an even more compact size…

Draper Expert 149 Piece 1/4, 3/8, 1/2 Drive Socket Set £129.99 UK TOOLS

not many places have it actually in stock and can't find it cheaper anywhere else with free delivery, prefer the Draper to the Halfords socket sets

spend more and get halfords instead
A good price but the RRP is a bit of a joke. I prefer Halfords with the lifetime warranty and ease of using that warranty.
Shame it hasnt got 36mm socket as thats what im after :(
what could you use this for?

Can't understand why this is cold. Great deal for some top tools.

Looks like there is a £10 off code as well.

A good deal gets better.

The Fire Service fit free smoke detectors, just give them a ring. They are usually the posh ones with a ten year sealed in battery. (there are only a few that have been setting themselves on fire, detectors that is)

CO detector from lloyds about £13 delivered.
