How is Hug-A-Plug safer than other adapters?

When plugs are inserted in outlets behind furniture, they can be pushed against the wall in such a way that the cord can become kinked. This creates the risk of an electrical fire. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 40,000 home fires annually are attributed to home electrical wiring. Often, arcing of the cord is the source of the fires.
