This is a very simple product. It adds an on/off switch to your outlet. This is particularly important if you are dealing with anyone who is paranoid about appliance fires. This could also fall under adaptive equipment. This was purchased for a blind person who can’t see to plug in the toaster oven and will not leave it plugged in due to a prior toaster oven fire. This solved the problem because they were able to find the outlet by following the toaster oven cord which was plugged into the Belkin unit. They don’t need to try and plug it in because it is already plugged in and they just need to flip a switch.
Now the toaster oven is a two step on and off but the Belkin provides peace of mind which is easily as important as it’s purported purpose of saving electricity.
