Slay your wire monster, part 2

Belkin has some very useful alternatives to your usual run-of-the-mill surge protectors. They are compact and can conceal the unsightly mess of all those outlets. Belkin says:

Now you can add outlets, protect your electronics, and save space with multiple outlets as close at hand or far from view as you want them.

The regular surge protectors that you probably have are not very user-friendly and don’t lend themselves to keeping the cord situation inconspicuous. They simply serve the purpose of adding more outlets for your needs. The Belkin solutions add the outlets and take into consideration the unsightly mess that those outlets add to your home or office.

The three options are the Conceal Surge Protector, the Compact Surge Protector, and the Clamp-On Surge Protector. Each serves a different purpose and you should be able to find the one that’s right for you.

The Conceal Surge Protector does exactly what its name suggests. It conceals the outlets and plugs underneath a cover that closes over the top. Leaving a clean white box instead of a wire octopus. The Compact Surge Protector has more to do with space saving than concealment. It features a vertical design that combines functionality and style. The Clamp-On Surge Protector provides a mountable design for portability and convenience. Each model also includes a Connected Equipment Warranty.

    This is a simple idea that worked for me…

    I grabbed a small cardboard box (smaller than a shoebox), cut a hole in each end, and coiled all the extra length inside. So the only cables you see are the ones that enter (and leave) this neat littl cardboard box (actually the box is tucked under the entertainment unit) and the cable are all tied together and exactly the right lengths are exposed.

    Simple and effective, and zero cost.

    You can also coil power leads like this, but obviously don’t put the power board in there!
