Review -I hate power cords. They can get tangled and get in the way, especially on small kitchen appliances. We usually use cable ties to tame them, but if we lose the cable tie, it will still leave a bunch of rope behind the device. It would be great if all small appliances had wired storage, but they didn’t. There is an answer. Winder. Let’s take a look at The Cord Wrapper and see if it is the better known mousetrap.
what is it?
Cord Wrapper is a patented power cord storage solution. It adheres to a surface and provides a place to wind the power cord.
What’s in the box?
The box itself is part of the solution because the simple instructions are printed inside the lid. Each box contains two packaging lines and two alcohol preparation pads.
They also include a thank you card, which contains some placement tips.
- Size: Approximately 3 inches wide and 1.5 inches high
- Capacity: Five feet or more power cord
- Heat resistance: 200 degrees Fahrenheit
- Color: black, white, red
Design and features
Cord Wrapper has a domed top with a matte rubber finish.
Under the dome, we see the mounting base. A 3M rubber pad is installed on the base.
From the side, The Cord Wrapper looks like a chunky mushroom with scalloped edges.
The setup is simple:
- Use the supplied alcohol pad to clean the installation location
- Remove the protective paper from the rubber pad
- Install the winder
- Put away your rope
All this sounds simple, but it is rarely the case.
This is the back Vinci hands-free juicer I reviewed it.
Note the classic twisted power cord. I want to know if Cord Wrapper can be installed on it because it is curved.
I cleaned my back as instructed.
Then, I peeled off the backing paper and attached The Cord Wrapper. This involves placing and pressing it. Then, I reached under the dome and pressed the mount itself. To my surprise, the base is flexible enough to follow the curve of the juicer. It installed perfectly! I don’t recommend trying this method on anything with sharp curves, but the curvature of the device is subtle and it works well.
The scalloped edge grabs the plug and helps to hold it in place, making the packaging look neat and tidy.
This is another one installed on the back Magiccos Food Processor I reviewed it.
Again, it cleans the hanging ropes into a neat solution.
I pointed out at the beginning of this section that some things should be simple, but rarely. This is one of the exceptions to happiness. It should be simple, and it is.
All this sounds perfect-what are the gains? There are three kinds.
First, it is not heat resistant to more than 200 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that for something hotter than a slow cooker, this is not a good solution. Many toasters have cool sides, so these are fine.
The second problem is that once it’s in place, that’s where it stays, which means you can’t move it. On the one hand, this is a good thing because the adhesive is very strong. However, if you want to move it, you must peel it off. They do sell replacement pads in this case, so this is a minor problem. By the way, the cost of each replacement pad is as high as $5. This makes me…
The last bigger issue is price. I asked my budget-conscious wife how much she was willing to pay for these. She said that two packs of $7.99 would spark her interest. Unfortunately, the price of $24.99 for two packs is more than three times that. If you enter your email address on their website, you can get two or more two-piece 20% discount codes. This reduces the price of each Cord Wrapper with a quality of 4 or more to just under $10. I would rather see the manufacturer provide power cord storage and charge me $10 more for the equipment, but this is me.
what do I like
- Simple and practical design
- no sooner said than done
- Can be easily connected to most surfaces
What will i change
They say that if you build a better mousetrap, the world will pave the way for you. In my opinion, this is a better mousetrap. It is elegant, simple, and easy to work. You must determine whether the value it brings is worth the $24.99 packaging line asking price.
price: USD 24.99 per pair-If you provide your email address to get the code, you can get a 20% discount for two or more packages
