I have a bed which is in front of the radiator and there is no other way to have it. I found this thing called "Heat Reflective Tape" and I was wondering if it would work if I would put this Heat Reflective tape on it bed to protect it from the heat?

many thanks everyone

Little indifferent to Rosalie’s answer because radiators don’t get hot enough to start fires. Even if you put a book of matches on the radiator they wouldn’t ignite.

However, I do agree with two other things: There ARE ways to put a bed in that room so that it’s not over or blocking the radiator. I can imagine using a bunk bed with only the top bunk in place. A day bed might work too. The other thing I agree with is whether this room is legitimately intended to be a bedroom.

As for radiators and other heat sources intended for heating the living spaces, a radiator is a rather large unit. It can be replaced with baseboard heating which can extend around the room. They’re much smaller and you can place a bed over them with very little effect on the ability to heat the room.

If you are renting the space then you need to work with what you have. If this is something you own then you may want to consider remodeling the room and incorporating different sources of heating. I have a bathroom down stairs in the basement that isn’t connected to the main heat source. So I installed "Radiant Floor Heat" which makes the floor a warm and inviting 76 degrees, and thus, keeps the room warm too. Of course I can change the temperature, and it doesn’t use much power but 76 is so comfortable to walk on I almost want to sleep on the floor.

Whatever you do, in answer to your question about using heat tape, I have to ask why? Is the bed getting too warm? If so, get a small circulating fan to move air around. That way you’re pulling the heat out from under the bed or away from the side of the bed. Or you can build a box to enclose the radiator to prevent the heat from going places you don’t want it to while maintaining the temperature of the room.

Hope this helps.

I live in NC and was looking to buy a used truck at a small car lot. I looked at the truck and found some things wrong with it and told them that I wouldn’t buy it unless these things were fixed. They told me I had to put some money down to place it on hold until my husband could come look at it in a couple of days, just to make sure everything checked out ok. I gave them $200 cash and got a receipt. I didn’t sign anything. Turns out that their service center never inspected this truck and that it wouldn’t even pass inspection (no high beams, gas tank strapped together with a ratchet strap, 4-wheel drive was bad). After my husband found all these things, we decided we no longer wanted the truck. The owner refuses to give the money back because he claims it is refundable, which was never communicated to us. He misrepresented the information on this vehicle and I have recorded him saying that he could have sold it as is (without passing inspection) to someone else. What should I do???

Sorry, he said it was "non-refundable"

Document everything that happened included who what when where and why.

Then file a claim in small claims court.

The guy is obviously a crook and most likely has other claims against him.

Odds are excellent that he will gladly give your money back rather than go to court and get the negative publicity.

I want to put reflective blue tape on my car rims to add some style. Is having it considered a light or is it legal? Especially if legal on highways in Minnesota.

Illegal.

I purchased some new trees and purchased the tree tie down kit with three stakes with the yellow rope and the rubber pieces to put around the tree. Not sure what kind of knot to tie anyone help?
Thanks

Actually what We do in the tree industry is to take a piece of wire that will go around the tree and the stake and put a hook onto each end.We slide a piece of old garden hose over the wire and simply put the wire with the protective hose on it around both tree and stake and clip the two hooked ends together.Keep it on for about two years until the tree is established and then remove it.If You chose to use a piece of string any half knot set to the right length and then secured with another half knot and cut will do.

I’d be taking it two miles on well paved roads, but I don’t have an a-frame. My plan is to put two pieces of scrap plywood in the bed, braced against the sides and leaving only enough room in the middle for the thickness of the countertop. I would stand the countertop up in the bed on its edge, connect a c-clamp to the center of it with plywood cushions on both sides of the granite, and run four ratchet straps from the corners of the bed up to the c-clamp. Would that brace it well or is there some force I’m not thinking about that might break it?

And no, the store doesn’t deliver.

5 by 2 is relatively small. And if there are no sink cutout holes in it then there are no weak spots. Here’s how I would move it:

Get a 2 inch thick foam panel (comes in 4′ by 8′). Cut it to fit the bed of the pickup. On top of that I’d lay a 3/4 inch plywood support (for putting the slab into and out of the truck – and for carrying it into the house). I’d lay the slab on top of the plywood and strap it down using ratcheting tie-down straps to prevent it from shifting around.

Then take it home.

Is all that necessary? Probably not. But still, I wouldn’t want to risk my money. Besides, laying it strapped to a 3/4 plywood panel (that fits the bed and is just about the same size as the slab, but with handle holes for easy lifting) will make handling the slab a whole lot easier.
