Total Cost Breakdown

The cost of Socket Shelf is $10.00 plus $7.95 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Socket Shelf by paying the extra shipping fee of $4.95 for a total price of $22.9. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page which was taken offline due to Socket Shelf being discontinued. Socket Shelf may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.

How It Works

Socket Shelf is a small shelf that will screw onto your electrical outlet. All you need to do is remove the existing cover from your outlet, screw the shelf on, and then return the cover to its place. The Socket Shelf is sturdy enough to last months or even years, and will attach to any standard electrical outlet.


  1. Charging Phone
  2. While your cell phone is plugged into your electrical outlet to be charged, you can use the Socket Shelf as a resting place for it. Therefore, the phone won’t fall and get scratched or break.

  3. Hair And Beauty Products
  4. The Socket Shelf is great to store hair and beauty products on in the bathroom. Women can rest their hairbrush and lipstick on it as they get ready, and men can use it as a place to set shaving cream. It is also an ideal place to store toothbrushes, whether electric or manual, either temporarily or permanently.

  5. Keys
  6. You can put your keys on the Socket Shelf each time you arrive home, so they don’t get lost or take up too much space on your counter.

  7. Aromatic Candle
  8. If you want to enjoy the ambience of an aromatic candle in your bedroom or bathroom, simply set a small one on your Socket Shelf, where it can rest securely.

  9. Rechargeable Battery Pack
  10. The Socket Shelf is wide enough to hold a rechargeable battery pack. Therefore, you can keep it out of the way in your garage, leaving space on your workbench for other things.

  11. Coffee Grounds
  12. If you want to keep your coffee grounds close to your coffee maker, and save counter space at the same time, plop the can of grounds on your Socket Shelf. You can also do the same thing with your smoothie mix and your blender.

Positive Points

  • Prevents Accidents
  • When you don’t have enough appropriate places to store objects in your home, you may leave them lying around on counters, furniture, or the floor. This makes them more likely to fall or get stepped on and break, which can be a huge hazard if the object in question is something like a burning candle.

  • Reduces Frustration
  • When you’re completing a task that you need one or several small objects for, but you can’t easily put your hands on them, this can be infuriating. Fortunately, if you have a Socket Shelf, you can keep the little objects close by as you work.

  • Three Shades Available
  • The Socket Shelf comes in black, white, and tan, so you can choose one to match each room.

  • Comes With Outlet Covers
  • Each Socket Shelf also comes with two matching outlet covers that you can use with it, if you don’t have any or don’t want to use an existing one. That way, your outlet cover can always match your shelf.

Negative Points

  • Not Big
  • The Socket Shelf is fairly small, so it won’t hold absolutely anything. It is designed to hold hand-held objects, not big appliances, large glass sculptures, or anything else heavy.

Critical Advice

The Socket Shelf will draw attention to your electrical outlet, and will cause people to go near it frequently. Therefore, if you have kids, make sure you remind them that they shouldn’t be touching the actual socket.

Wise Advice

Do not buy Socket Shelf online before searching Amazon.
- Alternatives or the same items are always available and sometimes at lower prices.

Order Was Cancelled

Never received our order. After about 4 weeks we received a letter that said because of high order volume they did not have the stock to ship or order so it was cancelled. Strange. Still being advertised on TV and available to be ordered on the internet. Not going to reorder.

I Regret Buying it!

Where Is It

I purchased socket shelf over a month ago on line and am still waiting for the product. The money still has not been deducted. Is there a back order? If so, how long must I wait.

I have a Question

My Order

If I ever receive my socket shelf I will be happy to review it. I received confirmation of my order almost 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything since, is there a problem?
