swivel to redirect your power so you can safely slide your furniture back
without any problems with your electrical cords.

We plugged in the Side
Socket and make sure the surge protection and ground were working. Then we went to
see if the product would allow us to push the furniture back further up against the
wall - and sure enough it worked.
The Side Socket comes with a surge

only good once. It will still work as an
outlet, it just won't have surge protection for you any longer. So for $12.99
it's not a bad buy.
