Pull-A-Plug — World's most technical plug remover


From the website:

    Pull-A-Plug — Remove Plugs Without Yanking!

    Now you can safely and easily remove electrical plugs without damaging the cord.

    Pull-A-Plug is especially handy when removing plugs from a tightly packed power strip.


I'm reminded of the wonderfully-titled fishing memoir by the great Australian art critic Robert Hughes, "A Jerk On One End."


A set of two Pull-A-Plugs costs $9.95.

Ten bucks? Ten Bucks? for one???? I even zoomed in to see if it was really anything other than knotted (beaded?) twine and a thin piece of plastic....seems to me the "jerk at the end" would be the one that buys it.

The don't-pull-the-plug-by-the-cord thing is a remnant of the days cords were screwed to the plug. Now almost all plugs are crimped/fused/molded/bonded on. Yank away.
