Customer Questions & Answers

why is there a black prong. it cannot just plug into outlet

nothing in manual about the black prong
Asked by: lazybones
The protector is designed to plug into a standard duplex receptacle. The power plug inserts into the bottom receptacle and the plastic plug (prong) inserts into the ground hole of the upper receptacle. There is no need to remove the outlet cover, but you can if you like. If the upper receptacle of the duplex is being used for something other than a standard receptacle, like a power indicator or ground fault indicator, it won't work unless you replace with a standard duplex receptacle (less than 1USD at just about any hardware store).

Protect It! Surge- 6 Rotatable Outlets is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 120.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small price for "Peace of Mind" I recently moved from California to Oklahoma and I am not used to all the lightning we get here. A month ago we had a lot of lightning and a 3 second power outage. I had one Trip-o-lite surge protector on the living room satellite tv only and it saved the equipment from the surge . The bedroom satellite box had none and was destroyed. We had satellite insurance and they replaced unit. I ordered additional surge protectors and put on all outlets in the house that had electronics connected including cell phone chargers, computers, TV's, radio's etc and have weathered two storms since. This is a small investment for peace of mind and maybe saving a a major repair bill.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and easy protection Just plug in over any existing duplex receptacle and get protected. There are some wall mount protectors that require a screw to be fastened into the cover plate mounting hole to secure the unit better but this unit serves the purpose without any further assembly. If you rotate the receptacles towards the wall, plugs can be withdrawn sideways without pulling the unit off the wall. Place your thumb in the center just below the indicator light to prevent unseating the main mounting plug. It's best to keep the area around the outlet open to plain view so that the indicator lights are readily viewed at all times.

The rotating outlets allow you to keep plugs and cords very close to the wall. This is a real bonus when a piece of furniture will cover the unit. The unit also doesn't require removal of the outlet cover like many wall mount do. This one doesn't furnish cable or USB potection but for just extending the 120V power plugs at one wall location, this works great. As far as the actual surge protection goes, that is still to be determined but the warranty registration is easy and fast. At just over 15 USD, it's a bargain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Outlet rotation is a great conveinence when needed This product fulfilled my intended use. I needed to be able to use the plugs in either facing side-to-side of face outward. The facing outward was required to accommodate a timer. I rated this only a four star as the unit wants fall out of the wall socket due to the uneven surface with the wall plate in place. A better design would have a hollow recess to accommodate the wall plate or to have a screw so it would attach to the wall outlet using center hole on the wall plate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic product Bought this after reading many reviews and looking for a quality surge protector for our entertainment center. Product arrived quickly, packaging was great. It supports all of the equipment that we needed and it's great that the plugs can be turned to the side so that we can push the fireplace tight against the wall. Plan on buying several more of these for throughout the house.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This unit works well for adding plugs side ways. I like the unit but it should have a center screw to hold in place to the outlet. if your not removing the plugs often its ok. What I like is you can insert the plug sideways and not into the room, desk, counter. it does save space... if I could change the design, I'd put a screw in the center to go into the wall outlet for more support.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luckily haven't had to "test" the device yet, FUNCTIONS well This sits just next to our couch where we have the subwoofer and a couple of phone chargers plugged in. It does it's job well and the swivel is a nice feature that lets you plug in some larger chargers with limited space. Haven't had any outages or power surges but with Tripp's reputation I'm not too concerned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from EXCELLENT product These surge protection devices are small and compact. The tight fit to the wall is exceptionally clean and easy makes it easier to manage cords. I especially like the guarantee against damage to connected devices. This is a "must have" for those interested in protecting their electronics.
