What is a surge protector?
Surge protectors help shield your devices and appliances from electrical spikes by attempting to limit the voltage passing through them. This is great for anything from lamps and TVs to computers and music equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made, good value and useful This is a solid device that is very good---especially at this price (twelve quid). It comes with a pair of peg-thingies that you can push into the back of the unit in case your wall socket sticks out from the wall. The fifth socket, at the bottom, is permanently turned on. As the previous reviewer noted, the unit holds the plugs very firmly in place. So if you try and pull a plug out of this unit, you are more likely to pull the unit out of the wall. So it's just a matter of holding the unit whilst you unplug things from it. Apart from that, it is a very good unit and I would buy again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If you need 5 sockets and don't have to take the plugs out very often this will work well for you. It should be noted however that its difficult to get the plugs in and out, it tends to pull away from the wall slightly and only 4 of the 5 sockets can be powered up/down individually. These niggles are not too troublesome when set against the benefits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor execution of this product Great idea, saves the trailing cables, but poor execution. The product is designed for white electric sockets that stick out about 5-10mm from the wall or sockets with the back sticking out. It is useless for flush electric sockets. I made some home modifications to the product and it works fine, but I noticed that the weight of the four upper plugs can pull/dislodge the plug from the wall. For these reasons I would not recommend you buy this product.

Dominic, UK families move to Canada and they bring most of their household effects including fridges...I guess there must be something to make them work. Will have to try RONA.......Thank you for your time and trouble...
