People are always messing with my powerstrips, unplugging and reshuffling my stuff to make room for their own cords, which wouldn’t bother me except that some of those powerstrips are powering especially important equipment, the kind that make you sad when they shut off spontaneously — that’s where the Furman PlugLock comes in.

The PlugLock powerstrip features special “locks,” not the key-and-lock kind, but brackets that’ll securely hold bulky wallwarts as well as conventional plugs.  Just tighten down the screws on the back of the unit, and your pesky family and/or coworkers will have a much harder time meddling with your precious power.

I wish it came in a larger format, say a strip of eight or nine, but five outlets will hopefully cover the all-important devices.  The PlugLock goes for around $30, a pretty low price considering it could save you a bunch of headaches.

    I have seen a few guitar techs use these when they build and wire effects racks.
    Mounted to the top of the interior of the rack they allow you to use the unclaimed space for securing your wall wart power supplies. Of course a power strip, cable mounts and zip ties can accomplish the same thing but the Furman piece is cleaner and makes it easier to move/remove wall warts. In the few years since I have seen them I haven’t heard of one failing, and this is on well traveled, used and abused rack mount gear.

    Looks good for RVs. One of my squid type power strips has a little cam lock that holds the blade in the plug, I never considered putting wall warts in it – til now.
