    Outlet Covers with supports for plugs

    Anyone know of a source for electrical outlet covers that have a support for heavy power cord plugs. I had one that was 3d printed but it broke after only a few weeks.

    Thx

    Yes! Exactly! Mike - you are the MAN. I have Furutech outlets. I'll figure out which ones I want and give Matt the info.

    Thanks

    Those Block Audio C Lock covers work like a charm and they make a version especially if you use the Furutech base plate.

    Re: Outlet Covers with supports for plugs

    This seems like a good product. Do they make a triple version? I didn’t see anything other than a single outlet on their site.

    No triple. They do make a double, but it’s for a small power cable. Best to stick with single only. There isn’t room for the C-Lock and more large outlets.

    Re: Outlet Covers with supports for plugs

    Well, that is probably a good thing since I suspect it would cost at least $500. However, thinking about this it seems like a relatively easy niche market to get into. All the outlet cover needs is a strong, supportive U shape under each outlet to handle each cable. Feel free to take this suggestion and produce it. Just let me Beta test it.

    Since we’re the American Distributor for Block Audio, we probably won’t be competing with ourselves. Outlet Covers with supports for plugs

    They are $350 if you’re getting them with the top of the line Furutech outlets built in.

    Otherwise:

    Was this the product that broke? They are 3D printed.

    Yes. Very poorly designed. Not recommended.

    A big expense to a wall plate manufacture is 'UL' certification.
    Yep, even wall plates need to be 'UL' listed.
    The 'UL' wall plate code book costs over $400 dollars.
