Outlet-mount Device Charging Pocket



I have four teenagers who each have various small rechargeable gadgets. The chargers are hooked up all over the house, which means cords go everywhere. This little project might make things easier for parents and dogs who tend to trip over cords. It's a pocket to hold your device as it's recharging -made out of a shampoo bottle! Find the instruction at Make. Link -via Unique Daily

Separating the outlet and plug with a thin piece of plastic like that is dangerous. The plug should always stay snug against the outlet. If anybody is going to make one of these, the bottle should hang ON THE WALL above, below, or next to the outlet, never between the outlet and the plug.

Let me echo guest's comment.

Besides, there are a couple of good screws that could have been used to hold the caddy. Using the lower one to hold the caddy would have even made the construction much easier.

Totally agreed with both of the above. As soon as I saw the plastic separating the plug and outlet, the project went from "neat" to "potentially dangerous".

I think the SocketPocket from Thinkgeek.com does a much better job. Looks nice, and is safe, too.

I feel like the outlet caddy has been done better than this version. There are some cute versions out there that really do combine form with function in a much more design forward way
