A power strip with a long cord is usually enough to give you an easy-to-access power outlet when doing handyman work around the house. Being accessible, however, doesn’t make it the most convenient to use. That’s where Prop Power comes in.
Instead of just a long extension cord attached to the power bar, the power outlet is attached to a gooseneck tube that you can wrap around structures in the vicinity. That way, you don’t need to find a dry surface to rest the power bar on — just wind it around the same hanging rod, post, or table leg where your Flexi Light is clamped onto, and plug in.
Prop Power is a power bar with three outlets (two in front, one in the back) attached to a 6-foot long cord. Over a foot of that cord is covered by a flexible rubber tube that you can clamp around fixed structures for propping up the outlet completely hands-free. When set up around your impromptu workspace, it gives you convenient outlets to plug in a drill gun, an electric fan to cool you down, and a laptop so you can read instructions for what you’re doing from whatever handyman website gave you the idea. Yeah, it’s pretty awesome.
Aside from handyman jobs, we’re guessing Prop Power can make for an ideal tool to bring power outlets in the backyard and other unwired sections of the house, too — perfect for turning a tent pitched in the yard into an emergency home office if you need one. It’s available now from Quirky, with shipping slated October 18th, priced at $19.99.
