Live how many of you have sat up late at night -- and infomercials and ordered a whole bunch of products only to find out.
None of them actually work well some of them do and we're gonna find out which ones do and which ones don't from.
-- Kaplan Gordon -- an advisor for all star products group and we're gonna test out some of the products you've tried all these things down.
Now I just son had a short time ago for this screen door of the magic -- magic and we're gonna try and use this let's.
-- for a demonstration of the girls realize that this movement is.
It's a it's like a screen door in a box right -- -- it up over your patio door and that you can't leave the door open to block it and that's -- -- screen.
So you might not have a spread typical screen door you know.
Okay let the thing about this is hands freight that is when you've got it up there you go thrilled.
-- Mac and it's close automatically.
Which is great which is to make this different from a lot the screens out there.
And the reason I like yet if I've got two little dogs but when he got in at the house all day -- right so what I do they leave the dog leave the door open.
And I got my magic -- the dogs -- -- It closes behind them no bugs.
The bus so it does automatically could have -- yet to think that fifteen minutes attack -- -- Bellini is back at step Blatter and a little camera.
Any tack it up.
If you -- OK now what about children because my kids.
They also like to go in and out and they hate our screen -- so is that a good solution.
Or does it concern -- a little bit because the little ones can just fly right out the door well I mean you don't leave any door open -- -- so.
So they likely it's great for -- maybe not under the age of for the carrier.
Now I you know it's he lives -- -- -- -- little kids but you're older ones who never closed the door into the buttons are always coming in this is perfect for them.
My dogs at about five minutes to figure out how to go through it so -- am sure there.
Might think -- -- to your kids hate it if they're pretty jar and you get a nice breeze through having read about you know I live in Virginia we -- it.
Great spring in Virginia so I can leave the door open all the winter -- -- out there out and use my magic that's all right do you -- -- -- effect that high up next is the trendy.
-- you need to -- is an instance layer.
The only areas all the things that kids love layers yeah just this gives you an -- -- it's what do I want an instant well because -- Look -- pretty I'm wearing one now -- -- it's good people like many because I get the -- but I don't get that have to build more fabric you know that hot in here is that me.
It's nice not to rest of these things.
And it's like it's like -- giant.
Ace bandage like -- -- and that and we kind of Shimmy it up okay under the top you've got and then you've got a but what do you think that's really great is that it covers the area of low cut scenes between your -- -- top and -- Your shirt -- So every time you raise your hand you don't get that breeze back there it.
If you know you can't get I'm not not a not real fashion inclined so I just what does it accomplish warmth.
Tells it like getting things and then if it doesn't keep things it's not a girl it -- the little layer okay eat out from the bottom.
But what it does also is it keeps your.
Bottom from peeking back do you think that's tonight's road guys didn't feel like it on doctor -- I did not gonna try to -- it east of plumbers -- you -- -- Well back stick that I -- the black tip the cubs and let me.
That might be a little more my style outrun the black owned land after the -- them ruling an adjustable headset we just talked out wireless -- Does go to show.
This makes any this is hardly alone no it's not know it's a headset it makes any Smart phone headset.
They just but it doesn't actually -- the same things have moved past that you'll I think is much bigger and you don't lose it.
I've but because the dollar with a long -- Reboots decimal every tires everytime -- -- that that I know where it is.
They just put up the movement that -- all I want it but it's gonna mess here.
Think it does give us a better islands in the what you -- -- and I.
