Really low profile. Easily fits behind a tilting mount. My outlet is in the middle of my mount where there is a hole, and this plugged into the outlet over the mount.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I found this product to be useful for limited space applications and its ease of adjustment in close quatets. However it would be beneficial to have an on off switch. For more expensive electronics I prefer a surge protector with voltage monitoring capabilities.

Excellent product value. The swivelling AC outlets are the best feature that allows use in cramped spaces. I only wish that this came with its own power on/off switch (like an power strip does).

Wayne from Livermore, CA on 7/14/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I installed this surge protector in an outlet behind a wall mounted flat screen tv. It's low profile design and adjustable receptacles allows for a flat profile and organized installation. It also has a higher joule rating than most at 2100.

Pros: Higher joule rating. Flat, compact design. No cord.

Cons: None
