This is a good power protector Brought this surge protector about a year ago and it has stood thru over five types of storms. Still holding up great. October 15, 2014
Very High Build Quality Excellent build quality. holds up well after 1-yr service for my all-in-one PC. October 13, 2014
Plug it in, forget it! I have had no power failures with any of the 6-outlet suppressors. Plan to purchase one for all the other outlets. The ability to swivel is one of its best options. Very Satisfied with this AVSWIV6. October 2, 2014
Excellent Product Have had lightening strikes in the area, but have never any issues since we purchased this suppressor. I have had other suppressors from various companies, and have always had lightening issues, but not with TrippLite. October 2, 2014

Can I break the rod off? Or will that affect the socket in some undesired way?

XD NO YOU DON'T CUT IT OFF. It was meant to be plugged into a outlet that has two sockets (which is typical of all outlets) and become six. It is supposed to take both sockets. That rod goes into the top socket's ground.

Thank you for your inquiry. That black peg on the back is used to stabilize the AVSWIV6 by inserting it into the unused ground slot of a duplexed outlet. Cutting it off will not affect the the socket.
