Outlet Switch


Think outside the outlet space — say, between an extension cord and a device connected to it.

So obvious you wonder how come it took until 2008 to surface.

From the website:

    Outlet Switch

    Outlet switch lets you control power with the flick of a switch.

    Tired of unplugging appliances when you leave the house?

    Handy adapter has an illuminated on/off switch on top — when you want to shut off power, simply press “off”; to restore, just press "on.”

    Ideal for toasters, irons, coffee pots, lamps and more.

    1¾"L x 1½"W x 1¼"H.

    Fits any wall outlet.

Seriously? They think a person would pay $5 (+s/h) per plug to avoid the effort in unplugging the cord rather than flicking a little switch- AT the plug? And I still have to bend down and find the outlet? This is one of the stupidest things I've seen yet. But I guess that was your point. :-)
