We live in an electronic age, so I really shouldn’t be surprised at the number of cords my family has plugged in at all hours of the day. The trouble is finding enough outlets for them all. We have power strips, of course, but they look so messy on the floor. We also have some plug-in multi outlets, but they stick out several inches from the wall, pushing our furniture and appliances forward and giving us less room on our floors and countertops.
I figured that all these cords and bulky strips and outlets were just the price we pay for technology, when I saw an ad for Side Socket. I ordered a set, just to give them a try, and I was amazed at the difference they made in my home.
How It Works
Side Socket is a plug-in multi outlet that holds the plugs on its sides, not its front. This makes it easy to access the plugs and outlets when reaching behind furniture and appliances and also reduces the amount of space taken up by the plugs. When using Side Socket, your furniture and appliances can be pushed back up to the wall again, giving you more space and creating a less cluttered look. Plus, your cords are up off the floor where they won’t cause trips or be at risk of damage.
Here is the Side Socket commercial which gives you a good demonstration on how they work:
Pros and Cons
Side Socket has been great for my family, but like anything, it has its pros and cons. Have a look at the list below and make up your own mind.
- Keeps your power cords from tangling.
- Elevates cords and plugs to prevent trips, injury, and damage to your electrical items.
- Reduces the look of clutter in your home.
- Provides you with additional counter and floor space.
- Side access makes it easy to unplug cords without having to move furniture.
- Only comes in white, which may not match your decor.
- Provides six outlets, but may accommodate fewer plugs if they are large.
Where To Buy
I’d definitely recommend buying from the official website. I was able to get a free Side Socket just by paying extra postage and handling, plus a lifetime money back guarantee. This saved me money while also giving me peace of mind in case I ever have a problem with a Side Socket.
I like our Side Sockets so much that I’ve bought several more for all around the house. I’ve even given them as Secret Santa gifts at the office last Christmas. My house looks great and I don’t worry as much about cords getting tangled, tripped on or damaged. Give the Side Socket a try to see if it works for you and your family.
