Keep outdoor extension cord connections safe and dry
Leaving two extension cords plugged together outside just got safer. Twist and Seal provides outdoor weather protection for electrical cord connections, and it is the perfect way to keep cord connections dry in any outdoor setting—including near pool pumps, ponds and water fountains. A Twist and Seal can accommodate plugs of any size, from smaller holiday lights plugs to commercial-grade extension cords.
The foam inside a Twist and Seal is slightly larger than the plastic housing on the outside. As you push the shell together around two joined extension cord plugs and twist it, the foam compresses to create a radial compression around the cord. Each Twist and Seal is made of a tough UV ray resistant and weather resistant commercial grade plastic that will withstand many years of exterior use. The heavy-duty, weather-proof Twist and Seal sells for about $8.95 at participating Walmart, Do It Best, Ace Hardware and other fine stores, or order online at www.twistandseal.com. For more information, call (888) 945-4545.
A new way to boost plant growth
Got plants? iGrow uses patent-pending technology to increase the growth and production of virtually any plant that has a green leaf. iGrow generates negative ions that slightly charge the plant and allow it to maximize photosynthesis. The slight negative charge allows plants to more easily absorb the positively charge nutrients in the soil, thus increasing growth and discouraging insects and disease.
The ion shower created by iGrow also counteracts the effects of pollution. The solar-powered iGrow dramatically increases plant growth and fruit yield. Simply hang a compact (4” x 4” x 3”) iGrow unit 9 to 12” above plants. The iGrow increases plant growth within 3 feet of the unit, and within weeks you will be amazed at the increased growth, vitality and production of your plants. The solar-powered iGrow never needs batteries, and it is all natural for people and pets. The iGrow sells for $19.99 at www.igrowinfo.com.
