Difference in measurements on Bunnings website


Difference in measurements on Bunnings website




I find it perplexing when going through the Bunnings website and looking for items.  People who who put in the item measurements have little idea as to height by length by width (HWL/D).  If I am facing an rectangular object;-

* Height is the vertical measurment from the floor or from the ceiling down.

* Width is the measurement from left to right.

* Length is the measurement from myself into the distance of an object. (ie what is that distance from me "Depth")

Intersignly enough the ther are two measurements for Round objucts (OD, ID and L;-

Outsie Diameter (OD) - pretty obvious - the outise diameter.

Inside Diameter (ID) - the inside diameter.

Length - self evident (as above)


Issue #2


Why was I not able to address this succgestion to head office and had to use the workshop forum.  Why no direct email to Head Office? ? ? 



I have attached an example of a light bulb from the Bunnings website when I was searching for on the website.  Note the notations my red.
