    I bought mine last year on sale.

    Check hfqdb.com, it shows price histories so you can try and see when the sale might happen next.

    That’s what I paid for mine. After tax I was still less than normal cost.

    Does anyone own this cargo carrier? For the price seems hard to beat.

    what's with the double LED shop light? My newly opened store has had a blank shelf now for a month. Cashiers have an auto response "check back Thursday when we get our weekly shipment." Man I need light!

    Nothing shows up on the website other than this single one: I installed these a couple years back:
    https://www.costco.com/Feit-4'-Linkable-LED-Shop-Light,-2-pack.product.100462723.html

    I wired them directly into the existing junction box by cutting off the plugs. A ton brighter than the fluorescents that I had. You can usually get them at the store for $25 each.

    Given the HF single tube price, the Costco ones might be the better deal?

    Save your pennies @EnonEye , get these. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DNPL2V...olid=2VS5KNSHAOH72&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
    I put 6 of them in my garage and it's very bright in here. The other two will go in my wife's art studio.

    Picked up the Daytona 3 ton super duty Jack yesterday at $180 with coupon, along with some 6 ton Jack stands and a cheapo creeper. Holy shit this thing is way bigger than the 2 ton I've had forever!

    Nope, I don't have them behind the doors. They are about 6 inches away from the vent running through the middle of the garage on the door side. They are centered on the far side.

    I should mention, I have them running off these to the two bulb sockets that were in the garage so it's all on a switch without having to hard wire anything.
    I used these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B002DN6QX...olid=2VS5KNSHAOH72&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

    Sorry to derail! Back to HF!
    I picked up an electric leaf blower the other day while it was on sale.
    Wife also got the dual drum polisher but I think it's junk. Motor sounds wonky after only two days of run time. Will fire it up again and give it a second go but I think we may just take it back.

    Mine took 8 days. Was quoted 10.

    Definitely varies.

    Everybody loves them.

    I was surprised at how light they are too. Doesn't make me worry that they are only screwed into drywall :anonymous::crapstorm:

    I started out the lights in my garage with the bulb sockets like that but decided to remove the light fixtures and install outlet boxes and normal dual plug outlets so I can utilize the power for other things. I plan to add a retractable extension cord hanging out of the rafter at some point that will plug in there for tools and things that I shouldn't need the power for unless I'm out there with the lights on anyway. It was easy for me though since it was just mounted to the open ceiling truss framing.

    Stopped in yesterday and they said it was on the truck and should be in today, finally. They quoted me 1-2 weeks, Saturday will be 6 weeks.
