Cool 4-plug adapter with rotating outlets

Transformers are receptacle hogs.  They clog up power bars and often take up two spaces.  So someone really smart came up with this beguiling little unit with outlets that rotate 360 degrees so you can put four transformers to work at once without a bar fight.  Not bad looking either, and way tidier than a gawky power bar with its stiff unwieldy cord.  By the way, it's also a heavy-duty surge protector.  $16.95 

Where to buy:  Lee Valley Tools.
