Masterplug Surge Protection Perform Extension Tower 2m 10G
Recommended but be warned.....
Good product, but don't whatever you do assemble the base until you completely understand in which order to put it together. I took mine out of the packet, assumed I clicked both base parts together then lifted the plug part into the base unit, only to find you lift the plug part onto one of the base parts first, then slide the base top cover down onto the second base part. If you do what I did, you can't disassemble it & you're stuffed! I now have a base unit + a seperate plug tower. Contacted MasterPlug to ask for advice & was told
"Dear Mr ******,
We are sorry to hear that you have accidentally assembled the base for your tower style extension lead before inserting the sockets.
The base sections are designed as a `one-fitâ item to prevent then coming apart due to uneven pressure once they are assembled, which means that there is unfortunately no easy way to disassemble the halves without damaging the clips on one or both parts.
If you have any other questions please feel free to call us on 08451 947 584 and speak to an operator. Our opening hours are 08:30 to 17:00 weekdays only (excluding bank holidays).
Gutted isn't the word. lesson learn't, but thanks a million MasterPlug for offering no help whatsoever!
Why not sell the unit in one piece ready to remove & use, like every other tower unit we've bought previously?

Tower extension lead
An excellent idea that looks smart. Stands on top of a work area and has 8 sockets plus 2 more for plugs with large transformers. Ideal for IT use and hobbying and fitted with 13amp fuse.
The downside is that once the base is fixed to the unit, it cannot be easily removed.
My 2 units both had a faulty switch which would not switch the lead off.
Hence the low score.
If the replacement that I hope Masterplug sends works perfectly then the score would be much much higher.

Easy use safety extension
Had one before got this as second one for other electrical gadgets (laptop, x-box, etc) just one switch to power of at night, wires neatly stored, no worries.
Also half the price of other stores.
