Preventing laptop power cables from accidentally being yanked out.

“…We can think of several functions we’d like a product called JerkStopper to perform, but we’ll happily settle for the real one: preventing laptop power cables from accidentally being yanked out. This nifty solution from Damage Control Products will be great for people who may inadvertantly have problems due to spasticity, running over cords with wheelchairs, or basic klutziness.”

Investment Saver

“…On the Daily Giz Whiz episode 507, Leo Laporte showcased the JerkStopper. It looks like a great way to keep the AC power connector from getting damaged because of tugging on the power chord. My wife and I had to throw away a laptop a few years ago because the power connector broke. Note: We tried everything!?! At the time the laptop was worth about a thousand dollars. The connector was worth less than fifty cents. We lost the expensive laptop because of a silly fifty cent piece of hardware. Grrr! I am definitely going to buy one of these JerkStoppers gizmos soon for our new laptops. Thanks Leo and Dick for a great suggestion. 78g.”
