The Holidays Mean More Gadgets and Appliances to Plug In

Do-it-yourself Plugmold® multi-outlet strips for kitchen, workshop, or anywhere you need more outlets


Plugmold GFCI in the kitchen

WEST HARTFORD, Conn., November 14, 2013 – It seems that there are never enough power outlets – at least not where they’re needed the most. This is true in kitchens with the ever-growing number of plug-in appliances and gadgets—especially during the holidays. Other rooms where outlet shortages are common include entertainment centers, workshops, home offices, and garages. Fortunately, adding outlets is an easy do-it-yourself project, thanks to Plugmold® multi-outlet strips from Legrand.

 

These units are the quick, easy and attractive way to de-clutter and create space for new gadgets and appliances. Available both in hard-wired, DIY kits and cord-ended, plug-in models, Plugmold® multi-outlet strips add from six to 10 outlets to make your home more functional and organized.

Hardwired Tamper-Resistant Plugmold Kits are ideal for kitchen applications, including under cabinets, along a backsplash, and on islands. Available in black, white, and stainless steel, these units complement any décor. They also meet tamper resistant requirements, which are mandated for residential installations. A built-in shutter system prevents inserting objects such as hairpins, keys and nails into the outlet. The convenient “project in a box” includes a 36” Plugmold strip with six tamper-resistant outlets, quick-wire connectors, and mounting hardware.

Cord-ended Plugmold Multi-outlet Strips are the easiest way to deliver power where you need it. Simply mount the unit and plug the cord into an existing outlet. It’s perfect for entertainment and hobby areas, kitchens, home offices, and anywhere that additional power is needed.

Plugmold Tough Power Strips feature a “diamond plate” aluminum cover that looks great on workbenches or in garages. This plug-in unit provides 10 outlets with a circuit breaker.

Plugmold multi-outlet strips are available at The Home Depot and other retailers. Please visit the Legrand DIY Project Corner for more information on adding outlets and other do-it-yourself projects.
