Power Strip Modification
Ah, the power strip.
The back side.
To mount to a wall you are supposed to install two screws in the wall with the heads proud of the surface by the thickness of the plastic shell, then capture the heads and slide onto the screw. This usually causes much anguish as you have to mount the screws the correct distance apart. Often trying to slide it on will result in cursing.
Ever open one of these up? Not much to it.
The hole for the screw could be drilled all the way through the body…
Always good to check first…
I should have spaced this hole a little closer to the end, but there it is.
Mounting is insanely easy – put the strip where you want it and screw it on.
The screw head is no uglier than the power strip.
This is my new bench…
Lots more storage space.
