The Side Socket unit is an outlet / extension that provides you with more outlets from a single unit, but also gives you the right angle you need. With this device you just turn the sides to fit behind any furniture in your home, preventing the cords from squishing. This keeps things clean and simple. The space behind couches, across kitchen counters, and along wall units are all cleaner and better organized when you can plug things in at a side angle.
The cost of Side Socket Outlet is $10.00 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Side Socket Outlet by paying the extra shipping fee of $4.99 for a total price of $19.98. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at sidesocket.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Side Socket Outlet and has taken down the website. Side Socket Outlet may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

. The Side Socket unit keeps your house or office safe and organized. If you plug it into a garage or other work station, you can use tools without the worry that you might step on them on the floor.
The traditional mess of cords that is shoved against the wall behind furniture is completely alleviated with this device. Users can just rotate the side panels where they want them so that three outlets are made available on either side of the plug. Having the cords on either side keeps them from dangling down, being balled up, or bunched up. This just makes the space look nice and neat, compared to having the cords hanging everywhere.
Having the cords lifted up by the position of the outlet keeps them from the floor which is safer. It keeps users from continually pushing against the cords with furniture like desks. Generally, when people having things plugged in, the plug sticks directly out from the outlet, but the cord is then bent downward and wound around something. When this happens, furniture gets pushed regularly against the slight bend in the cord where it is forced to bend down or to the side. Eventually this leads to exposed wires or electrical shorts.
Vacuuming and other cleaning tasks are much easier too. In fact, the cleanliness of the entire space is improved. Often, when cords are huddled together in a ball on the floor, like all the cords coming out of a computer and plugged into an extension cord, the cords create little barriers. Vacuuming or sweeping often just pushes dirt up against the cords, rather than risk running them over.
Even generic movements through a room naturally pushes dirt and debris, even hair. These get coiled around the cords and makes the room or space even messier. This is true when the cords are all sat on a desk too. When cords are sat in a corner of the desk, that corner rarely gets cleaned, which leads to a build up of debris and dirt that can cause allergies.
Most users rely on this unit for electronics, usually in an office or area where lots of things need charging or plugged in. That being said, these are often the most expensive too which is why the company has included the optional surge protection function for when you have electronics plugged in.
You can pivot in more than one direction. So if you have a space where the outlet rests just outside of the end of a desk, you can plug it in and pivot just one side so that it faces directly out. Then the opposite side creates a right angle. This utilizes all of the available space in the best way.
You cannot buy this offer in stores yet which means you have to buy it from the website. .
You cannot extend the reach of the unit, which means that if you are trying to get lots of things to plug into one outlet. However, if they don’t all reach, this unit won’t be a viable solution.
When you order Side Socket from the website, you get one unit for ten dollars plus another five in shipping. They include the second unit for “free” though it does cost another five in shipping.
There is a thirty day money back guarantee on the product. However, if you order directly from the website there are no expedited shipping options so you might not even receive the product until that guarantee has expired.
States including California, Nevada, Connecticut, and New York have to pay state sales tax.
Extension cords are the main alternative. While they offer additional outlets, the same as this unit, what they do not offer is the ability to turn. This means that the aforementioned risk of cords bending and interior components being exposed is much higher with an extension cord. What’s more, extension cords have cords themselves of set lengths.
So if the majority of things you are plugging in are really close to the outlet, then you might have extra cord length from the items and from the extension. This just means more cords cluttering up the space. You cannot keep things lifted and off the ground with extension cords either. They too just rest on the floor or a desk.
