It could happen in the blink of an eye: a sudden power surge that damages or destroys your valuable audio/video equipment. And even if a catastrophic surge never strikes, smaller power fluctuations and electromagnetic line noise can degrade picture and sound quality, disrupt equipment settings or corrupt recordings. What is the solution to protect your entire home theater system from surge damage and power-related performance problems? Tripp Lite's HTSWIVEL6 Protect It!™ A/V Surge Suppressor. In one compact, cost-effective unit, the HTSWIVEL6 provides comprehensive protection and performance enhancement for your A/V components and all electronics. It features a high 1200-joule surge suppression rating—more joules mean more protection for your valuable components! The HTSWIVEL6 also filters out disruptive line noise that can degrade picture and sound quality, helping to assure that you enjoy the full audio and video performance you paid for.

Versatile Protection for Home and Business A/V Installations

The HTSWIVEL6 offers cost-effective surge protection and performance enhancement for HDTVs, satellite receivers, DVD/CD players and other A/V components. With its compact, switchless, direct plug-in design, this surge suppressor instantly converts two outlets to six, making it ideal for installations where space is limited. The outlets are arranged in two banks (three outlets each) that can be rotated for easier plug connection and removal.

HTSWIVEL6 Applications
Rotatable Outlet Banks
Improved Component Performance
HTSWIVEL6 Feature Focus

Rotatable Outlet Banks

The HTSWIVEL6's outlets are arranged in rotatable banks that are designed to fit a variety of applications. The banks rotate 90° to accommodate plugs from almost any direction and allow superior flexibility when completing your home theater installation.

Network and Coax Protection

Phone and coaxial connections represent a potential back door through which a damaging surge could reach your equipment. The HTSWIVEL6 includes one set of built-in Type F gold coax jacks to prevent surges from damaging your cable/satellite equipment (digital broadband quality accommodates 2.2 GHz bandwidth; 6-ft. coax cable included). Built-in tel/DSL (RJ11) jacks prevent surges from damaging your modem/fax/phone equipment (6-ft. telephone cord included).

Improved Component Performance

Various electromagnetic and radio sources can cause disruptive interference on the AC line. This line noise is a common cause of incremental hardware damage, data corruption and audio/video performance problems. The HTSWIVEL6 incorporates technology that filters out disruptive line noise, preventing it from affecting your equipment, and helping to assure peak audio and video performance.

Powerful AC Line Surge Suppression

The HTSWIVEL6 provides 1200 joules of surge suppression to prevent even the strongest surges from damaging your valuable electronics. It includes full normal mode (H-N) and common mode (N-G/H-G) line surge suppression.

Built-In Diagnostic and Alarm Capabilities

Two diagnostic LEDs (grounded & protected) show power and protection status, enabling you to recognize power problems before they affect your valuable equipment. The grounded LED verifies that the HTSWIVEL6 is connected to a properly grounded wall outlet. The protected LED indicates that surge protection is available. If this protected LED ever goes out, simply return the HTSWIVEL6 to Tripp Lite for a free replacement.

Ultimate Peace of Mind

The HTSWIVEL6 comes with $50,000 Ultimate Lifetime Insurance—guaranteed lifetime protection for your equipment in case of surge damage, including direct lightning strikes. And it's simple: Ultimate Lifetime Insurance coverage begins the moment you purchase the HTSWIVEL6, with no forms to fill out or send in. Additionally, this Tripp Lite Protect It! Surge Suppressor is backed by a lifetime product warranty and a rapid-response, no-questions-asked replacement policy that's unmatched in the industry.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Does what it says, have no complaints at all.

Cons: It's sturdily plugged in by one of two AC outlets and a thin plastic rod that goes into the other AC outlets ground port. I still think that it would be nice to have some more support by thickening the plastic rod or also adding a second AC plug to the part where it plugs into the wall for support.

3 out of 5 eggsSlightly annoying

Pros: I like how the outlets on each side swivel and the unit feels well made.

Cons: There's no screw to hold the unit to the outlet. I have this plugged in under my computer desk and if I accidently graze a cable plugged in to it I pull the whole unit out of the wall.

Other Thoughts: This unit might work better if plugged in to a quality electrical socket that can hold a plug.

3 out of 5 eggsTripplite supressor

Pros: Unique swivel plugs.

Cons: This is a direct plug in, no power cord, which would appear to put the strain of holding the supressor in the wall socket solely on the outlet. Ordered another, differet, unit.

5 out of 5 eggsWad U X-Pect?.. It's Tripp Lite!

Pros: (2) 90-degress pivoting banks of 3 plug panels on either side of the device. (as the image shows)
(1) In + (1) Out Sat/VCR/Cable Male socket.
Included (1) high quality 6 foot Sat/VCR/Cable F/F cable
(1) In + (1) Out 4-pole RJ-45 female phone socket
Included (1) 2-wire RJ-45 phone M/M cable
50k surge protection insurance on any attached device, I will ALWAYS go with Tripp Lite! (they also make certified hospital grade power protection/UPS/ISO devices. That tells me they know a little somthing about protection.)

Cons: A. No center screw hole for permanent mounting on wall plate to prevent accidental fall/pull off.
B. Only one lower 3-pole plug on back (not pictured) with second plug above only represented by a plastic ground pin guide, which enforces use in a 2 plug wall socket.

Other Thoughts: Would buy more if needed. Couldn't find anywhere else cheaper, and love using Newegg. Always fast, affordable, and convienent!
