Inventor Bob Green figured somebody, somewhere must have come up with a device to solve the problem of cramped plugs and hard-to-reach outlets. His patent attorney thought so, too. But after searching high and low for an existing solution, Bob found none. So he designed and patented his own creation, called Hug-A-Plug.
“It lets you use two three-prong plugs in a wall outlet where you want to push a piece of furniture as close to the wall as possible,” says Mary Roback, who wrote to tell us about Hug-A-Plug, which is manufactured in Decatur, Indiana. “No more cords smushed against a dresser or couch. It's great!”
With Hug-A-Plug you can save your energy for something more rewarding than dragging furniture away from a wall to reach an outlet.
