WOOD magazine review

Rotating Outlet solves right-angle plug issues

Review Summary

As soon as we saw the 360Electrical Rotating Duplex Outlet, we envisioned the perfect place for one in our shop. Because of limited outlets at our disposal, we are forced to plug in two cords that have right-angle plugs at the same outlet. But both cannot be plugged in at the same time because the top one’s cord covers the bottom receptacle. So we have to unplug one to use the other.
With the Rotating Duplex Outlet, we plug in both by simply swiveling them in opposite directions, as shown below. Copper contacts encircle each receptacle, so no matter how far you rotate them, they maintain current flow. The duplexes fit in standard electrical boxes. They come in 15-amp capacity, but 360Electrical says they’re also developing 20-amp, GFCI, and four-outlet units.
