It's Turn The Tables Tuesday, and Leo protects his power plug with the Jerkstopper cable retention device.

Detailed information

Turn-The-Tables Tuesday

Bob Crossman of Damage Control Products invented and manufactured this cable detention device to keep the AC power connector on your laptop connected, and protect it from the day to day tugging and pulling the power cord gets.  You put the power cable into the U-loop of the JerkStopper, which fits snugly on to the "teeth" of the JerkStopper plug, and then you plug the entire device into an ethernet or modem port or USB port.  An ethernet port or a modem port are preferred because they are lock ports.
