Decorative more than effective as is. As is, only ladies might scrape their shoes on this dog's back; men would surely tip it over. It is heavy and well made but needs to be affixed to a square of concrete to be sturdy enough to remain in place while scraping the mud off a man's boot. Attractive as a decorative touch but needs more support to be an effective tool.
Elegant & functional screen. This product is a great alternative to traditional, attached fireplace screens. Easy to assemble and install. We removed our old, attached one (with hanging mesh screen) and replaced it with this one. Couldn't be happier with the look of it and the stability of it. It has "legs" on both sides making it very stable. A plus is that the legs are hidden on the inside and barley noticeable on the outside. My only con would be that, because there are swinging doors made of very heavy material, one door sits lower than the other. Could be a flaw on just my screen. I still love it! We live in the desert so use of the fireplace isn't all that often, but it's great to know that we can have a beautiful and functional experience when we DO use it!
Just what I wanted. I found this product to be just what I needed. I couldn't find it in the stores unless it came in a bundle with other tools I already had or didn't need. [...]had it within a few days. My only complaint and it is minor, is that it can come loose-screws together, and at times have to tighten it up. Other than that I very much like the product.
Fireplace Tools Accent Match Decor Well. The stairway in our new home has wrought iron handrails and ballusters. The the ballusters are made with a basket weave decoration. The design motif on this fireplace tool set fits in very well with our decor. The fact that the set is not only decorative but well-made and very useable as well is just icing on the cake. [...] I'm very happy with the purchase.

Where did the name "Blue Rhino" come from? In 1994 Billy Prim wanted to take his convenience store business to the next level, and on a trip to Paris found a propane cylinder exchange display at a gas station. He thought cylinder exchange might work in the states, and he convinced a couple hundred stores to try it, sales were good, so he started a national tank exchange company that would capitalize on gas grill sales, which were starting to grow. On a photo safari in South Africa, inspiration struck when he zoomed in on a rhino, tough, sturdy, and looks like a tank. And the propane flame, he said, would make a perfect rhino horn.
