Tidy Extension is a retractable extension cord. It is meant for keeping electronics and outlets tidy in your home or office. By eliminating a mess of cords on the floor, you can open up a lot of space. This unit keeps whatever part of the cord is not in use retracted inside of the main device. The cord can extent up to five feet so you can use it to reach all of your outlets.
The cost of Tidy Extension is $19.99 plus $5.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Tidy Extension by paying the extra shipping fee of $5.99 for a total price of $31.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at tidyextension.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Tidy Extension and has taken down the website. Tidy Extension may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
The cord can extent up to five feet. Which part that is not in use gets reeled inside of the main component where it is hidden from view.
With only the length of cord you need exposed, you can eliminate messes and tangled cords.
This device has two of the three-pronged sockets and two USB ports so you can use it for many items and electronics. The flat plug feature rests nicely against the wall.
With this device, you can extend the cord as much as you need and then leave the rest coiled inside nice and neat. This is great for electronics, which is why it has the additional USB ports designed into it. Most home outlets are near the floor.
This makes it decidedly more challenging to plug in newer technological devices like kindles, tablets, or laptops because they have shorter cords. So when you just need to reach a tablet on the couch, or a laptop on the desk, or recharge another device just out of reach, you can do so easily and discreetly.
The company has a thirty day money back guarantee no questions asked. So, assuming it ships to you within that time frame, you can return it for refund minus the shipping and handling. What’s more, if your unit cracks, damages, or breaks within the first year you can get a replacement. The company states that this applies even in cases where the damage is your fault. You could, in theory, accidentally crack or break the unit during the first year and still get a new one or your money back.
The company has good customer service. Their website states that customers are not charged until the order ships. What’s more, they give all users the ability to check the status of their order online twenty four hours per day, seven days per week. There are operators standing by to take questions or concerns over the phone Monday through Friday for twelve hours per day. If instead e-mail is preferred, said inquiries can be sent through the company website. Using FedEx to ship all orders, users also get tracking numbers from FedEx so that the order status can be monitored.
You cannot buy this offer in stores which means you are forced to get their buy one get one free offer, which charges you additional money in shipping. Consumers also cannot opt out of the shipping costs by running down to the store or ordering it on Amazon.
They have a deluxe version of their product which offer surge protection, but it costs five dollars more per unit. Right now the first unit is twenty dollars plus six in shipping and handling. The second unit you cannot opt out of is technically free but it also charges you the six dollars in shipping and handling fees. For you to get the surge protection for both, you would need to add an additional ten dollars to the total cost of your order.
Those living in Nevada, California, Connecticut, or New York there is state tax applied to the other. Unfortunately those who want to send orders to Alaska, Canada, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Guam, or the U. S. Virgin Islands have to add yet another ten dollars to their order for shipping surcharges.
When consumers need extra outlets in the home in particular areas the only real alternative is to get an extension cord.
The unfortunate issue is that extension cords come in very specific lengths. So if the area in need of a cord requires only one extra foot of extension between the outlet and plug, consumers might have to buy a three foot extension cord minimum. This means there are two extra feet of cord just hanging around or sitting in a ball. In areas where lots of electronics are perpetually plugged in, this just leads to more mess and more wires in a pile.
What’s more, if extension cords are only needed for short term things, then that same three foot extension cord might end up in storage for the long term. Instead, consumers have to go and get a new one to better fit a new outlet.
For example, if consumers then need an extension cord in their kitchen that is four feet long, they have to buy another one instead of using the older, three foot one. Unfortunately, these cords go up incrementally and not foot by foot which means the next size up might be six feet in length. This, again, leaves the unsightly and sometimes unsafe problem of two or three extra cord feet.
