The Extō+2 is a more attractive, better functioning extension cord.
There is a Japanese color book from the 1920s considered the first book on color combinations for design. One of our first retailers CORD in Portland, Oregon sells this book and used it to pick the colors of their logo. The Mint Extō is inspired by their logo, and you can still visit them at 2916 NE Alberta Street in Portland, Oregon. A nostalgic-modern turquoise blue with a red cord that shows style and contrast and works alongside most other colors.
Each one of our products is designed to make access to electricity easy and enjoyable, solving problems caused by basic plastic power strips: The Extō line of extension cords are made of cast aluminum and stainless steel designed to be heavy so power will stay where you need it, even with sockets full of plugs. The metal housing also resists fire so they can be safer than plastic strips. The Extō is the only extension cord we know of with internal tamper resistant gates in the outlets, helping prevent shock for better kid-safety. Hand-built in our family owned factory in Los Angeles, our patented Extōs are safer and more attractive than most power cords. Finished in a variety of powder-coated colors and paired with industrial-quality wire overbraided with American cotton thread in attractive patterns, the Extō power cords are more friendly and functional than any power strip in history.
The wire is custom made to be more flexible so it drapes over the edge of a desk and around corners more easily. Fewer kinks and easier handling means better power without a struggle. The patterned woven cotton covering is made in our factory on machines designed almost 100 years ago. The round barrel plug at the end is over-sized rubber for easier grip, and avoids the strain issues caused by right-angle plugs (note: Right Angle plugs are available as a custom option by request). The cord is FT-2 Flame tested with good results.
The outlets face upwards for easy plug/unplug and for use with accessories such as the lamp conversion kit. The ornamental inserts in each Extō+2 are made of silicone or natural cork placed at the cord inlet and the opposite side of the housing to break up the surface plane while adding balance and visual elegance. We also love the materials for their simplicity, texture, and variation. Some people see a reference to Wabi Sabi, which is intentional.
Non-slip, non-marking polyurethane feet keep the Extō in place on a table, counter or other hard surface. The cover is secured with a stainless machine bolt.
Extōs also have four mounting holes on the underside. They can be fix-mounted to almost any surface or the underside of furniture with self-tapping screws (not included).
Every Extō is guaranteed against manufacturing defects, and thanks to our assembly design, we can repair or replace any component on your Extō throughout its entire life, keeping waste to a minimum, and the product is mostly recyclable so you can rest easily knowing nothing will end up in a landfill.
