Kord Keeper is a plastic compartment that you'll be able to use to store cords from smartphones, tablets, computers, radios, kitchen appliances and more. You'll be able to store these cords in this compartment regardless of whether they're plugged into the wall or not. By storing cords inside and then closing the compartment, you'll make any room in your home look neater, and you'll also be able to protect any children who may be around from electrical outlets.
The cost of Kord Keeper is $10.00 plus $9.95 shipping, for a total price of $19.95.

The first thing you'll need to do is fit your Kord Keeper over an existing electrical outlet. For quick results, you can just stick the compartment on over top of the outlet, but you'll also have the option of removing the outlet. Following that, you'll be able to screw both the outlet and the compartment more permanently onto the appropriate wall together.
Once your Kord Keeper is in place, wrap a few cords around the raised plastic pieces inside the compartment. Keep in mind that you'll only have room for about a handful of cords, so you might want to choose the ones that look most unattractive or get in your way more often than others. Make sure one end of each cord is sticking out the small hole at the top of each compartment so you'll be able to access each one quickly.
After you've added cords to your Kord Keeper, you'll be able to close the compartment's door. You should still be able to close it even if you've plugged a couple of cords into the sockets of the outlet it's attached to. If you can't close it securely, you've added too many cords and will have to remove at least one or two. Once it's closed, you'll be able to use the small latch on the right-hand side of the compartment when you need to open it up again.
Each of these cord storage compartments is white, so it'll match most electrical outlets in most homes or offices, as most of these tend to be white or beige. It also will appear fairly inconspicuous in any room. If you put one in a child's room, you could jazz it up with stickers, stick-on sequins or other small decorations, though.
The Kord Keeper will fit over virtually any outlet of a standard size and shape, so you'll be able to move yours from room to room or even from building to building when necessary. If you need to transport one of these compartments to another building, each one is only about the size of a soap dish, so it'll fit nicely into nearly any purse or bag.
If you choose to stick one of these compartments on over an electrical outlet, it'll only take you seconds to install. It'll take you a bit longer to screw one of these compartments to the wall, but going this route isn't necessary for effective cord storage.
Each Kord Keeper has a door, so once cords are wrapped inside, almost every inch of each one will be concealed. This will make any room look quite neat instead of looking cluttered. Unless you show a young child how to open the door, they also won't be able to get into the compartment and play around with the cords inside (a potentially dangerous activity).
Aside from preventing children from playing with cords or sticking their fingers near electrical sockets, one of these devices will promote safety in another major way. Having cords strung along the floor, counter or other furniture can be a hazard for anyone, as anyone could trip on a cord or catch their hand on one and knock an appliance onto themselves. Fortunately, having one or more Kord Keepers will keep your cords mainly out of the way, so there'll be less potential for accidents in your home.
If you're someone who often loses electrical cords and spends tons of time searching for them, having one of these handy compartments will help you keep track of them. Instead of rifling through different drawers, cabinets, and bags, you'll be able to assume that any missing cord is in your Kord Keeper and look there first. Along the same lines, if you're not sure where to put a new cord that you're not using, instead of tossing it in a random place, you can see if there's room in your compartment.
In the event that all the cords you need to store won't fit in one Kord Keeper, that's not a problem, as there's no real limit as to the number of these you can use. As long as you have an electrical outlet to attach it to, there's nothing wrong with adding another one to your home, even if it's in the same room as one that's already there. If you've got a few children or teens who have a lot of digital devices, you might want to get each one a separate compartment for their own cords.
When you add any cords that aren't currently plugged into a socket to your Kord Keeper, you'll have to wrap them carefully around the device's raised plastic pieces. If an unplugged cord were to come in contact with a socket, due to not being wrapped carefully, this could damage that cord and make it unusable. Wrapping cords carefully without putting one's fingers near any sockets might be a difficult task for some individuals, depending on the size of their hands and their dexterity level.
Most cords will fit in this storage compartment with room to spare, but if you've got a very long, thick cord that's attached to a larger appliance or digital device, it may not fit comfortably. Unfortunately, the Kord Keeper does not come in a larger or deluxe size.
Without a device like this one, you might have to replace cords on a regular basis, due to them being misplaced or stomped on by someone's foot and damaged. However, when you've got one or more of these cord storage compartments, many of your cords will be accounted for and out of the way of harm, so less cord replacement will be necessary.
If a child or baby were to come to your home, you'd normally have to go around and add plastic protectors to each of your electrical sockets beforehand, so the child couldn't touch them. When you're already making use of at least a few of these cord storage compartments, though, all you'll need to do is make sure their doors are closed in order to protect the child. This will be a much quicker process than making your way through every room with plastic protectors.
