Status Lights:
Red Light – Protected. This light should be lighted when the Socket Sense™ power switch is on, and it is plugged into a grounded outlet. If the “Protected” LED lamp goes out at any time, it means that the surge protection components of the Socket Sense™ have absorbed one or more power surges. At that point you should replace your Socket Sense™.

Green Light – Grounded. This light should be lighted when the Socket Sense™ power switch is on and it is plugged into a grounded outlet. If the Grounded green light goes off at any point, it means that there is a grounding wire malfunction associated with the outlet. You should stop using Socket Sense™ until the malfunction is corrected. The use of the Socket Sense with an improperly grounded outlet voids the warranty.


How to use?

  1. Using two hands, grasp the socket to the left and right of the socket where the power adapter will be inserted.
  2. Pull the left and right sockets away from the middle socket in order to create more space.
  3. Plug the power adapter into the middle socket.
  4. As channels as formed between the sockets when they are expanded. You may place cables inside these channels in order to organize them.
  5. Push the left and right sockets toward the middle socket in order to contract the length as desired.
