    Good Outlet Features, Not very sturdy

    This outlet works very well and has plenty of plug room that is appropriately spaced out. The USB ports are great too, adding an additional 2 plug options (that don't require large plug blocks). The side plugs (3 each side) swivel too to allow cords from the side or front, but click into place when you want it to stay facing forward. One issue I have is it is not very sturdy and will pull out of the outlet if you don't hold it with your other hand while unplugging something from it. A good product fix would be to have it screw into the outlet. Also it only plugs into one outlet in a standard two outlet wall jack. I have not had any issue with this but you should be aware of the power/amp draw since you are only technically using 1/2 of the available capacity and may cause something to trip the circuit prematurely. All in all it is a good product for a good price compared to the alternatives, and it looks good on the wall (not a big blocky eyesore. My only issue is that is pulls out of the wall if you are not holding it while unplugging a cord (only a real problem if you have something that can't/shouldn't be unplugged like Alexa or a TV Cable box that resets when it loses power) Very Good Product, I would buy another.

    Convenient Multi Outlet with Surge Protection

    I’ve bought 3 of these “on sale” over the last 2 years. They have lots of neat features, including 6 sockets that can point forward or sideways, 2 USB ports, 2100 joules of surge protection, and electrical noise conditioning. I have one in the bedroom I use to charge my phone overnight, in addition to providing power to a lamp, clock, and air cleaner. I have one in the bathroom so I can charge my electric razor and toothbrush while leaving my hair dryer and a lamp plugged in, and still have 2 free outlets. The swivel of the outlets is very convenient when hooking up multiple “bulky” chargers. I also placed one in the kitchen for extra outlets and USB charging ports. They are well made and offer lots of flexibility. I certainly am happy with them.

    I purchased this to replace an older, multiple outlet plug in that did not have surge protection. My older home has fewer power outlets but we have to ensure not to overload sockets. This was perfect. Because of its slim design, I was able to place it behind a piece of furniture, swivel the outlet plugs outward and use as needed. My furniture piece was able to be pushed closer to the wall than with the previous plug. Love that this has the 2 usb ports at the top, very convenient if you have the longer usb cords and hide the outlet behind something like I have. With the surge protection, I feel safer plugging in my cell phone and ipad. Rocketfish doesn't disappoint!

    I bought my first one about two months ago on a whim because it seemed like we never had enough outlets in the living room. Although this is typically sold for the fancier wall-mount flat-screen home entertainment systems, I find it works fabulously for at-home work or play areas. There are 6 regular outlets on this surge protector, which is pretty standard, but the three on either side are on a swivel to put less pressure on the cords that are plugged in. The two USB ports on the top of the unit is a nice addition too, because I can charge my iPad or iPhone without taking up another outlet space, and it'll even charge my PS controller at the same time. My only complaint is that there's only 2 USB ports on the unit, but that being said, I've ordered an additional three units for the house because it's just that convenient.

    I wish it came in white. I purchased this swivel wall for my daughters room and although it serves it purpose, it is not very pretty to look at especially for a teenage girls room. If Rocketfish or anyone in charge actually reads these reviews why not manufacture these in white since they actually go up against a white wall - duh! Also, my/her only issue is the light. Because it is LED it is pretty bright and at night even brighter, so she had to tape a piece of paper over it so that she could fall asleep easier at night. Maybe that little light could be place on the side, not on the front. These are the reasons why I gave it 4/5 stars.

    Great surge protector to significantly reduce the space between the wall and the back of the furniture that holds the TV and the rest of the equipment. The previous surge protector sat on the floor and the furniture would only go so far back to the wall and created a noticeable gap. The fact that the outlets on the side of this protector swivel is a great feature and even more of a space reducer. The USB connections are also great as they actually reduce the number of iOS devices that I need an outlet for to charge overnight since I can now connect them right to the USB connections. My wife wishes that they came in white for the other two that I bought that aren't as hidden and would blend in with the wall a bit more.

    I bought a couple these for those places around the house that gets high electrical traffic and So far I like it. The only downside to these is that if you fill them up they get a little heavy and can sometimes come crashing down to the floor. But I guess you can't do much to prevent that. Wish the blue light in front was a little dimmer so it feels like it's not burning electricity although I'm not sure if that's the case, it's a simple (LED?). Got them on sale so no complaints, I would have passed on these at regular price to be honest. But don't regret the purchase, sot there you go.

    We have bought this product in January of this year. We used that in the sleeping room. It made it much easier to charge our smartphones. We connected it to the wall outlet close to the head of our bed. That worked out that nice that we bought a second one for our living room. The swivels makes placing chargers and other cables easy. We love the two. Sometimes it comes loose of the wall socket, but we simply press it a little and it will hold for a long time. Charging with the two USB chargers take a long time. So we connect the chargers for our smartphones and iPad.

    Best 6 outlet wall protector of this form

    I've tried many different offerings of wall plugin devices, similar to this. This one fits the most snug and secure, out of all the other ones I've tried. The fact that it is also a surge protector was a bonus and additionally, has 2 USB ports for additional charging needs (great for peripheral charging needs like smartwatches or fitness bands). I purchased this on sale for $19.99. Not sure that I'd buy it for more than that, which is why I only gave it 4 stars (as the retail price and current price of 29.99 might be a little high). Other than that, if this ever goes on sale again for 19.99 or less, I'll likely buy another one.

    This is simply amazing. I can plug something into it, and it gives that device power. A must have if you want power to something and need more than two plugs. This little slice of heaven is not like a power box from the 70s. I have never tripped over it, and my house has not started on fire. The installation is super easy once you know what to look for: 1) Find outlet on wall 2) Plug into outlet 3) Plug device into unit 4) POWER!!! Truly an amazing invention and definite must have!!

    Great Outlet with nice Features!

    Great 6-plug outlet with 2 USB charge outlets on top. It's a nice feature also that each side with three plug outlets both swivel. The only issue keeping this outlet from garnering a five-star rating is that it does not screw into the wall outlet. Having that ability (as some other outlets provide) allows for easier plugging and unplugging without the need to use the other hand to stabilize the outlet. Not a huge inconvenience, yet one that can be avoided by simply adding the feature of allowing this outlet to screw into the wall outlet.

    I purchased this 6-outlet protector to replace a strip protector that had a couple outlets go bad. As other reviewers have mentioned, this product could be greatly improved by the addition of an anchor screw. Even when I took the switchplate off the wall and plugged directly into both outlets, I still had trouble keeping the unit from falling out. I was able to find a different use for it, in a place where I only have regular weight plugs and it seems to be working just fine. Good, not great. I ended up buying a Belkin BP106000, which has an anchor screw, for my initial location.

    Two rather bright Blue LEDs emit when everything is working and grounded. Two USB ports located on top which I like better than the awkward outlets that have the USB Ports on the face; meaning, items plugged in will be protruding away from the outlet, i.e away from the wall; I find that very annoying. The electrical outlet can be maneuvered forward or to the sides, also allowing for items plugged in not to protrude away from wall. Although it is secure to the outlet face-plate, I wish it was screwed into the wall outlet rather then just relying on the electric socket pins and plastic pins to stay in place.

    Surge protection and easy USB charging!

    We use this in our kitchen for a few small countertop appliances and for getting a quick phone charge during the morning routine. It's pretty darn convenient. My one gripe is that the plastic stabilizer plugs on the back didn't quite fit in our GFCI outlet near the sink so I had to saw those off, but the surge protector still sits very stable and works just the same. Highly recommend for any home or office, but is especially convenient for all the smart home devices these days!

    I like the design of it fitting flush against the wall. Our previous power strip/surge suppressor was the typical design that was placed on the floor. I used it for my tv and other audio video equipment and was placed on the floor behind an audio video cabinet. The width of a typical power strip with 6-8 outlets is about 4 inches wide, so I wasn't able to push my AV cabinet close to the wall. But with this wall mounted power strip, the cabinet is nearly flush to the wall improving the appearance.

    Great compact surge protector

    Needed a small compact surge protector to protect internet cable modem, WiFi router, phone base unit and cell phone charger with high level of joules due to constant power failures in my area. This unit met all my criteria and then some. Twist feature allows space for all the power conversion blocks to easily plug in. Also don't have to deal with everything being on the floor since it plug directly into the power socket. Thinking about putting one in every room in the house.

    Outstanding for the price! The swiveling outlets are an amazing feature and I have found that I use them a lot. They are perfect for "behind the nightstand" outlets since they won't stick out when you are using them. Another plus for "behind the nightstand" use is the USB ports located on the top. Perfect for plugging in your phone while you're asleep. Nothing negative to report a this point and I have had this for probably 6 months. Outstanding unit!

    A Very Good Swivel Outlet

    The swivel outlet works very well for up to six devices. Love the way it swivels to accommodate plug-ins from all directions. Also like the surge protection the device provides for peace of mind and the noise filtering for clean power. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the outlet fits loosely into the wall receptacle and could possibly come unplugged. Seems like it will be fine as long as you plug in the devices and leave it alone. For the price point, quality, and features, this is a very good outlet.

    I HATE cords all over the floor or valuable items not being protected properly without surge protection. And we have a lot of electrical storms here in Iowa. The problem is that MOST surge protectors are not flexible or old fashioned and unattractive. THIS ONE is a stylish Gamechanger! It is sleek and even sexy! It IS flexible so the larger plugs can fit in neatly no matter what without sacrificing too many plug spots. It protects your gear but looks great and stays in the wall nicely also!

    Bought one of these to help manage my cables in my entertainment center. Bought a house with wall mounted power supply to mount my tv.. I had originally bought a regular old fashion power brick..that soon became a problem since all the connections would not allow my entertainment center to be flush (as possible) against the wall. The rocket fish unit has single axis outlets that pivot allowing power cords to be connected from the side instead of the front allowing my entertainment to be a flush as possible to the wall.
