It's a pesky downside to the miraculous tech-driven world we live in: The more gadgets we own, the more unsightly cables and wires we have dangling, tangling and winding around our homes. If there was only an easy way to corral that sprawling mess. (Spoiler alert: There is!)
Enter the Sleek Socket Ultra-Thin Electrical Outlet Cover, an inexpensive way to manage the rats' nest that's accumulated around your electronics. And Amazon has it for just $24, down from $44 — no joke! Not surprisingly, it's been a big hit among Amazon shoppers: Nearly 22,000 reviewers have given it five-star raves.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? Don't be sad — you can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
The Sleek Socket Electrical Outlet Cover is a handy three-outlet power strip that stays out of sight while leading into one simple white outlet cover. The upshot? You can have up to three devices plugged in while also covering up the outlet powering them. And that cover ain't going anywhere: The Sleek Socket comes with an adhesive and clip kit to keep the cover secure and snug.
"Beautiful! Exactly what I expected," raved a five-star reviewer. "I use it to move my switch outlet to the corner for my lamp. It turned out so well! It's clean, neat and extremely easy to install."
Meanwhile, the Sleek Socket Electrical Outlet Cover has a three-foot cable itself that can be easily hidden away behind your electronics, clamped to your baseboard, or stowed behind your work station. The end result is, as the say, a unified solution that blends into the background. Perfect for apartment dwellers whose lease prevents them from a more invasive fix.
"I am a renter so putting a huge hole in the wall to hide my wires was not going to happen," shared a savvy Amazon shopper.

At just $24, the Sleek Socket also gives you more space against your walls, since you've no longer got bunch of plugs bulging out of your outlets. Everything is just flush, flush, flush!.
"I was looking for ways to move my outlet to the top of my bookshelf or next to the router," added another five-star reviewer. "Rather than doing the work by routing wires behind the wall or through the shelves, I saw this and tried it out. Honestly, this is the best alternative if you want to relocate an outlet using an extension cord...This unit is fricken amazing,"
