Rockler’s Magnetic Cord Keeper Preview
Keeps Power Cords Off The Floor
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left power cords laying on the floor and later realized I stepped on them or rolled something over them. The result typically ends up with bent prongs and occasionally a broken cord. This new Magnetic Cord Keeper from Rockler is brilliant! Once again another simple yet affective product that I wish I had designed! Read on to learn more.
MEDINA, MN (November 8, 2011) – Rockler Woodworking and Hardware has introduced the Magnetic Cord Keeper, a rare Earth magnetic clip that keeps unplugged power tool cords off the ground and out of the way. This is particularly useful when moving heavy tools around the shop and while cleaning a shop. Used with a table saw, scroll saw, band saw, or other power tool, the Magnetic Cord Keeper efficiently secures loose cords and cord endings to any ferrous metal object, keeping cords neatly organized and easily accessible when needed. Storing cords off the floor also eliminates potential tripping accidents and keeps the cord ending free of shop floor debris, preventing possible electrical hazards.
“Loose, unplugged cords can be a problem in any shop,” said Steve Krohmer, Vice President of product development. “The Magnetic Cord Keeper picks a cord off the ground and stows it on the tool keeping it always within reach, and preventing damage to the cord when moving tools.”
Measuring just 1-1/2″ in diameter x 7/8″ thick, the compact Magnetic Cord Keeper has a 5/16″ opening that holds a standard-thickness power cord. The magnet’s notched opening is also conveniently sized for holding pens, pencils or drill chucks, making it possible to keep commonly used items near and in plain sight where they won’t easily be missed or forgotten.
The Magnetic Cord Keeper also reduces wear and tear on the back by eliminating the need to bend at the waist to pick up unplugged cords.
The Magnetic Cord Keepers (42388) retail for $7.99 per pack of two. They are available at Rockler Woodworking and Hardware stores nationwide, Rockler’s independent resellers, Rockler.com, or in the Rockler catalog.
