Hug-A-Plug

Maker - Bob Green

Hug-A-Plug
Made in the USA

Maker Story

Outlet Ingenuity

It’s hard to believe no one thought of this until now: an adapter that changes the orientation of an electrical outlet, so power cords run parallel to the wall instead of sticking straight out. This way you need less clearance behind furniture and appliances. Plus, it’s a safer alternative to bent plugs and crimped cords that get jammed into tight spaces.

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.
