Once in a blue moon, you come across a product that makes you plant your face directly into your palm. We don’t mean facepalming in a bad way, like when you find something that’s so ridiculous it probably shouldn’t exist. We’re talking about something that offers such a simple solution that you can’t believe you never thought of it yourself. And it’s also a solution that’s brilliant, so you’re mad that you didn’t come across it sooner.

If ever there was a product that fits this description perfectly, it’s the Sleek Socket ultra-thin electrical outlet cover. This smart and affordable little gadget makes it wonderfully easy to hide all your power cords so you never need to look at that annoying clutter again.

Aren’t you sick of the tangled mess next to and beneath your electrical outlets? Even if you use surge protectors, they still have bulky, ugly cords that you need to plug in. That’s fine if the power outlet in question is behind a couch or obscured from view in some other way, but dark cables and cords are so ugly when they’re out in the open.

The Sleek Socket ultra-thin electrical outlet cover truly is one of the best Amazon finds you’ll come across. It’s so, so simple… and yet so wonderfully brilliant.

The Sleek Socket by Socket Solutions is a device that plugs into any standard three-prong electrical outlet, covering the entire thing with a solid white plate. Then a single white cable discreetly runs down from the socket cover, and it can then be tacked along the floor or in a crevice on a kitchen counter. At the end of the cable, you’ll find a power strip with three outlets or a surge protector, depending on which model you get. The best part is that the end can be tucked away behind a couch, table, kitchen appliance, or anything else, so you don’t see it — just a single, subtle while cable coming down from the base of your electrical outlet.

There is no doubt in our minds that the Sleek Socket ultra-thin electrical outlet cover will be one of your favorite Amazon finds this week, and prices start at just $52 for the model with a 3-foot cable or $5 more for the 8-foot version.
