These Clever Plugs Let You MagSafe All Your Cords

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Apple’s breakaway MagSafe connector is a beautiful thing. It’s kept many a MacBook from being unceremoniously yanked off a counter or desk when someone happens to trip over the cord.Other manufacturers have introduced similar solutions for their own devices — Microsoft’s Surface and Surface Book being two of the best-known examples. But why stop there? Surely there are other cords that might ensnare our feet and lead to expensive accidental breakage of things.That’s where Tug comes in. It’s a clever little two-piece adapter that lets you add that device-saving quick-disconnect action to any cord in your house (provide those cords use the standard 2 or 3-prong we lean on in the U.S. and Canada).One end goes in the wall, the other on the end of the cord you’re going to plug in. It doesn’t get much simpler than that now, does it?It just takes a tug (hence the name) to unplug after that… or someone or something snagging the cord at high speed, whichever. If you regularly have small children tearing around your house these gizmos could help you avoid numerous injuries, meltdowns, and unplanned replacements of electrically-powered things. The same goes for clumsy and/or drunken adults, really.Apart from preventing damage to yourself/friends/family and whatever you have plugged in, Tug also prevents annoying plug breakage. You know the sort of thing — when you kick or pull a cord for the umpteenth time and one of the prongs finally shears off in the outlet.How much will this added peace-of-mind and safety set you back? If you’re only buying a single Tug adapter it’ll run you $19.95. Buying in bulk will save you a few bucks: a three-pack goes for $49.95.You can place pre-orders now over at the ILOVEHANDLES online store, and you won’t have to wait too long for your Tugs to show up. They’ll start shipping on March 1.center_img Bitcoin Mining Puts Massive Strain on Electric PowerCalifornia Mandates Solar Panels On New Homes last_img
