I only recommend it because it is the only receptacle strip I've been able to find that will work for my application. Putting them in place is another matter. I've installed three 22" ones so far and two 36" ones. They are installed underneath cabinets. They look great. The 22" ones are a little easier because there is more room to make the connections, but they are still a pain. Being installed under the cabinets, there is only a short amount of incoming cable to work with. In order to make it work and the protect the cable, I drilled a 3/8" hole in one of the end caps and inserted a rubber grommet and attached it to the base, then pulled the cable through and attached the baseplate under the cabinet. It is extremely difficult to insert a 12 gauge wire into a connector, especially when there is limited space. You have to do it one at a time and test to ensure the wire is inserted properly. Sometimes, you are forced to grab the wire with pliers to insert it, which can damage the insulation. Then you have to insert the other end then pack these three connections tightly in the receptacle plate and attach it to the baseplate without being able to see what you are doing. It might be a little easier in other applications, but I don't ever see it being easy. Terminal screws would seem to be an easier, more secure way to make the connection. I thought about cutting the connectors in half since two connections per end can be made. I didn't have spare connectors in case it didn't work. Putting the two plates together underneath a cabinet is a bear. I had to use a rubber hammer. I would start at one end, and as I got to the other end, the first end would pop out. It's probably easier in other applications but never easy. I have concerns about the connections. It seems easy for the wire to come out. I verified each connection, but I worry that there are weak connections, not only the connections I made but the ones made at the factory. If you pop the covers off the receptacles the wires will freely pop out of the forks. The 36" inch receptacle strips come with clips, which makes it much easier. You can assemble the strips and simply pop them in place. The problem with the 36" strips is the very limited room to make the connection. I had to trim 3/16" on the connection side to fit the strips under the cabinet. It was just enough room to make the connection. I didn't have an 1/16" to spare. It would sure make it easier if the company had a pre-attached screw terminal connector, one that could be clipped off on the end not used for the connection. My wife had a granite backsplashed installed and didn't want any holes cut into the granite for the receptacles. Installing these strips was the hardest part of the job. The USB charger ports worked out nicely for plugging an Amazon Echo under the cabinets, also out of sight.

The PLUGMOLD 2-Outlet / 2=USB Outlet Multi-Outlet Strip in White has been installed under my kitchen cabinets. [Be careful when unpacking the carton, there are loosely packed components that could fallout unnoticed.] The installation went well, just read first and follow ALL DIRECTIONS carefully and have the required/recommended tools and supplies on hand. I have hardwired the outlet and removed the current wall outlet that I will be covering with the back splash tiles for a clean hidden look on my counter top. I will be adding more hidden outlet strips in other locations in the kitchen and bathrooms too. The USB ports will allow for convenient recharging of cell phones, etc.. using the USB plugs. I recommend this product and recommend good planning to get the best results. PapaBear1

Pros Compact, Easy to Use, Lots of Features, Nice Design, get help if needed for the 'hardwiring'. Cons watch for loosely packed components when unpacking

This plugmold strip is made from quality components. The tamper proof outlets are absolutely smooth, the best tamper proof outlets I've ever used. The USB ports are of high quality as well, and have virtually no "phantom load". The internal wiring is 12awg, safe for a full 15 amps. This plugmold strip can be combined with other plugmold products. It mounts easily and looks great. The back piece has mounting holes in it, and then the front piece snaps securely into place. I used mine for my electronics work bench, connected to a power meter. It looks and functions fantastically.

Pros Easy Installation, Eco-Friendly, Nice Design

Nice outlet, pretty easy to install and setup. We used on end of island and is thin enough to be covered by countertop so is mostly hidden.

These were incredibly difficult to install given the compactness of the unit. However, the compactness is why we all would buy these! If you get them in, you will be happy. Make sure the length of the wires are the absolute perfect length.

I'm a very capable electrician and I had trouble assembling this unit. It comes with the main piece, with the plugs installed, and a base that needs to be slid into a channel on the plug part. Mine doesn't fit together and required some modification. The plugs are too large, extend enough to block the base from sliding on cleanly. It is hard wire only, has no accommodations for an extension cord installation. This wouldn't be all bad so long as you know where you want to install it permanently. What I didn't expect is it is wired for a pass through circuit. In other words, it has incoming wires and outgoing wires (no termination point). This too might be OK if I wanted to wire to another outlet in parallel such as a GFCI circuit that has other outlets downline. Otherwise you will need to cap off one set of wires if you intend to terminate with this outlet. I don't like leaving capped wires inside this kind of unit. The unit does have a certain convenience and if you have the right application for it you might consider it. But it's not much what I expected.

Pros Stylish, Convenient Cons Complicated, doesn't fit together well, for hard wire use only, must be permanently mounted, has incoming and outgoing wires. this may be a plu

This timer can only control incandescent bulbs. This is timer not a dimmer so it should not matter. But it apparently does.

The Plugmold 2-outlet/2USB 22 inch white hardwired multi -outlet strip gives a more modern update to a kitchen remodel when needing additional outlets.... Too bad it doesn't come in an outlet strip that has more standard outlets … Say maybe a 6-outlet /3-usb outlet strip with an additional USB outlet in the middle of the strip... With today's modern technology many women use I-pads or their phone for on-line recipes when cooking.

Pros Easy Installation Cons not enough outlets, too short

The strip is a nice design, for my application but the quick connectors are crap. I used wire nuts to connect the wires. Fix this and you’ve got a home run.
