Recoiling Socket In The Wall

Rambler Socket maybe the solution most of us are looking for as far as extension cords are concerned. I mean if you hit “Extension Cord” on YD, for most of the posts you will see readers nitpicking and finding fault with the design. Here’s why Rambler Socket will knock your socks off. It’s this 1.5 meters cord that unfurls from a cavity behind its socket. When you don’t need extensions, it’s neatly tucked away. When you need it, simply pinch the sides and wind it out.

After the deed is done, you simply give the wire a gentle tug (activates a spring mechanism), and it recoils back into place. Ideal for using with electronics like vacuum cleaners, hair driers etc where you don’t need extension cords on a full-time basis.

    Oh no! No more horror movies when the guy’s chainsaw unplugs itself because of the short cord. The agony! Great invention though…

  • style-itch says:

    I am in love with this. I haven’t seen something this useful in quite a while.
    Make it possible, bring it out on the market as soon as possible.
    I LOVE this.

  • sponge bob says:

    It can’t work! You can’t use it when the wire is wound because of the joule effect loss and overheating… This electrical device will be rejected by most of international certification! Not safety at all

    • AC says:

      In that case, why does my vacuum cleaner not over heat when the cord is not completly unwound?

    • Troy says:

      Then why does my extension cord still work when I leave it coiled?

    • Electrician says:

      Most wound Cabel systems have a reduced max Amps while wound up. for example in Sweden we have coils for outdoor use that when coiled up they are max 230v 10 Amps and when stretched they are max 230v 16 Amps to compensate for extra heating when coiled

    • Brett says:

      Yeah, this would definitely still work and not overheat. Shielded wires have negligible effects on each other even when they are wound.

    • reality says:

      exactly. design without research.

  • enoo says:

    This would be great if it could exist, but I agree with sponge bob’s comment above, it would be rejected as dangerous.

    (Coils of extension cords must always be uncoiled before use, they can get hot very quickly. Otherwise, it can melt the plastic around the wire and fuse the whole coil together, and create a nice shortcircuit, or fire)

    • Joe says:

      Just shield it correctly and you’ll be fine. We have shit on space shuttles that withstand entering the atmosphere. I’m sure in this day and age we can insulate a coiled cord.

  • joe says:

    OK, enough with this nonsense. There’s no problem with the coil, the only problem is that you have to make a hole in the wall for the coil, and some walls are too solid or too thin so it will be tricky.

    • name says:

      i stashed my drugs in empty outlet holes. theres enough space

      • Emily says:

        It would only work in new houses with drywall, older houses have plaster walls so you would be unable to make holes for the cord.

        It would also waste a lot of unnecessary energy constantly using all that extra wire even if it was just being used as a regular outlet.

  • j says:

    I had one of those rollable extension cords. They’re worthless since they tangle themselves after a short time.

    There’s already wireless electricity in the market so I don’t see any sense in this. I say make wireless outlets and make every appliance we have utilize the wireless electricity tech.

  • Mehmet says:

    it’s very cool
    but doesn’t have earth?????

  • NancyJ says:

    it’s well~~

    • Amir Ali says:

      the coil shouldnt be a huge problem, its a simple heat transfer problem, at the very least it can be easily found out if it works or not. for safety, it can be used for less Watts while wound up, and more Watts while stretched. A simple calculation can determine the maximum power allowable in each way.

  • Please Explain…how will it go back?

  • amazing idea, i don’t understand why none of these come in North American socket patterns, even the cool 5 inlet one you posted a month ago was euro plug 🙁

  • Alan says:

    Lol…i find this idea stupid. Not only u have to dig out the wall, but maintenance will be so difficult. Whats wrong seriously with buying a multiple extension cord ?

    Think as a buyer and u see how irritating it will get in the long run.

  • kacperos says:

    Nice design, very practical solution

  • azade says:

    it’s very very very WELL

    rules allow?

  • circle says:

    are

  • fatemeh says:

    its verey good.

  • walldecor says:

    wow,it’s the wonderful mind for this kind of design,which will be very convenient where you’d like

  • Luiz Filipe says:

    Muito eficiente!! Adorei!! XDD!

  • GT says:

    Al Jaffee, artist for MAD magazine, had this idea years ago.

  • Ozi says:

    Best idea ever

  • deren says:

    This looks great. When do you think it’ll hit the markets? If that’s just a normal extension cord in the wall then you should be able to have one that’s longer then 1.5m right?

  • Gabriel says:

    No grounding on this sockets… I think its not very secure.

  • Palou says:

    This design is possible, this system is possible.

    That being said it would cost a considerable amount between install and hardware (the cost will also reflect the R&D involved and the cost of it getting certified).
    God forbid there’s a problem down the road.

    So basically you install this gimmicky
    design in hopes of becoming more lazy an to avoid going into a closet to get an extension cord.

    How often do you need an extension cord in your house anyways? do you plug you hairdryer in the bathroom and blow dry it in the garage?

    Who needs this? What do you plug in and need to walk around the house with?

    this is pointless.

    word up

  • Lucho says:

    Hi,

    Great product, I’m commenting it in my blog too.

    BR,

    Lucho.

  • TomGab says:

    This already exists.

    It’s called an extension cord (which is many times saver, dont want to think what happens if it catches on fire IN the wall).

  • Design+ says:

    thats a real good idea, everybody would love that. but what if it was a bit automated, mean the cable when we want bring it back we just pull it like iphone usb cable.

  • Adel says:

    thats a real good idea … that only 1.5 m ? i want more if possible.

  • azade says:

    dear meysam U R gooooooooooooooo.

  • Dr.Safety says:

    Not going to go into production….Its a huge fire hazard since the wire is coiled up on itself which will produce a decent amount of heat if the outlet is under a heavy load such as a hair dryer.. The design is Nice but the safety side needs a little more attention

  • more is possible. it isn´t difficult.

  • Paul says:

    I think this is a great idea im just offended by the hideous green woire it looks to come with, surely something that would blend in more would look far better?

  • Tom says:

    It is a good idea but on the example above it shows the chord coming to the hairdryer, are they not meant to have a chord of their own???

    model, let hope they live up to their reputation. This phone will change the way manufacturers design phones. I am definitely going to buy one as soon as its launched.
