I bought this looking for a simple outlet multiplier that would just plug in. Turns out it comes with a screw that you're supposed to attach to the outlet by removing the faceplate. Well my house's outlets don't have a center screw whole in them! And the screw doesn't come out so I can't use this product! Does not come with instructions either. From what I'm reading on the US Home Depot site this thing doesn't even sit steady and tight even if you do screw it on. Very frustrating since I probably can't return this because I threw out the receipt thinking it was a no brainer product to install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom Great value and good product.
I have many of these in my home and shop. All are working perfectly protecting my valuable items. The one pictured is protecting my garage door opener.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hawley87 Great Product
There's a wiring problem in my house at the moment and another surge protector I have burned today and ruined a device i had plugged up to it but this one is still working great and everything plugged into it is still good. It's a good price, easy to connect. I like that it screws into the outlet because not only does it stay connected but I'm pretty sure that the screw is the grounding point. I also like the easy to read lights to let you know its still working.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by th1219 6 OUTLET WALL MOUNT SURGE PROTECTOR (MODEL YLCT-30)
The normal condition tor the 6 outlet surge protector (Model YLCT-30) is for the protected LED to be red when lit and for the grounded LED to be green when lit. When the surge protector takes a voltage spike and the red LED goes out it becomes a regular power strip with no voltage spike suppression. The packaging needs to be clarified in noting such. The unit itself works very well. In regards to mounting the unit, remove the outlet faceplate screw leaving the faceplate cover in place, and then install the surge protector by turning the Phillips screw of the unit into the faceplate. If the outlet was not installed properly originally there may be some looseness or movement of the unit.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by robert28 product is okay, instructions not included.
this product assumes that the face plate on your outlet has a screw in the center of the outlets. It comes with a screw to secure it using that spot. i thought it was for greater pourpose but its not. this adapter will also have a plastic stub to insert into ground at the lower outlet.

We are moving to the no communications world! No one was there in the store to tell you how this worked and certainly there were no directions in any language on how to plug this in! It is very easy once you read up on Internet but supposing there was no Internet...another 25 min drive back to HD to find someone to explain how it works... The screw in this thing is probably designed not to come out so if you take your center screw out of your wall plate and then plug it into the top position, the screw will fit into the space left in the wall plate and the plastic post will also fit. Just push gently towards the wall and screw in tight.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lowend15 Great to expand outlets in a structured wiring panel (On-Q)
I came online to repurchase this exact thing, since I have one already installed in a 42" structured wiring panel. It works just fine, and is perfect for that application because it is two outlets wide by three tall, instead of 3x2 like most others, so it is thin enough to work in a roughly 3.5-4" space (recessed in wall). I have installed another 42" panel (man these things fill up quickly!) so I needed another outlet multiplier.
I have a whole house surge protector, so people that are complaining about these failing - they may be doing their job. Mine has worked fine for about a year. Its main purpose was to split a duplex outlet to six receptacles; it was inexpensive, and added another layer of protection to boot.
I have the duplex outlet panel power via a UPS, so I doubt a surge will ever reach it.
I am pretty handy; a vast majority of the complaints are people who apparently don't know how to use a screwdriver.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Frank Purchased a Defiant power tap model YLCT-30
I purchased a Defiant power tap model YLCT-30 on 9/17/2015. Upon installing it I found that it had no lights at all illminated. The outlet was working fine prior to installation and after I removed the YLCT-30 unit. The YLCT-30 unit will not indicate power or grounding do to lack of indicator lights. I will return it to Home Depot.
