comment How do I open a padlock after it has frozen?
They make a lock deicer spray designed to unfreeze automotive locks, but I don't see why it wouldn't work on other locks as well. You should be able to find it at your local automotive shop.

comment Does a single-gang double timer switch exist?
@bib Hmm. I'd like to see the circuit diagram for that thing, to see how they get away with that. I wonder how the unit gets power, if there is no neutral. Unless it has an internal battery, that charges when the switch is closed (on).

When you say "cord", do you mean "power cord" or "data cable"?

comment Does a single-gang double timer switch exist?
This is a countdown timer, not a schedule timer. With a switch like this, the light will stay on for between 5-60 minutes and then turn off. I think the OP may be looking for something that will turn the light on at 5:00 p.m., and off at 6:00 a.m. each day. But I could be wrong.

comment Why does the shower get cold when I flush, and how can I prevent it?
The shower would get cold if somebody used hot water for something (almost certainly not a toilet flush), instead of cold. It could be caused by an over enthusiastic thermostatic mixing valve, which reduced the hot water flow too much. Using up all the water in the hot water tank, would also lead to a cold shower. And yes, you do have to install a thermostatic mixing valve at each shower/tub. They are used to replace the plain old standard mixing valve.

comment How do I cut a brick fireplace hearth to allow for a laminate flooring expansion gap?
@SwDevMan81 You can leave it as is, if you want. If it was me, I'd probably trim it like this just so it has a flat face where it meets the hearth.

It might be useful to have a bit more detail in the question body.
