5.0 out of 5 stars Time to update with these adapter plugs. Be safe., July 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AXIS 45086 3-Prong to 2-Prong Electrical Adapter - 2 Pack (Electronics)
Most electronics now require a 3-prong outlet to use, but what if you have a 2- prong outlet in the wall?
Most computers and accessories, including a surge, now are 3-prong. Place one of the "AXIS 3-Prong into 2-Prong Adapters" onto the 3-prong plug of your computer, surge, refrigerator, etc. At first it may seem like it doesn't fit only fitting half way. IT WILL FIT! Use some more elbow grease and hand strength. Wiggle it in, if you must and you will find it is a perfect fit. Make sure their is no space at all. The adapter and the back of your original prong plug must touch. Now you have a 2-prong. Make sure your appliance is off before you plug it in to the wall outlet.
The 2-prong adapter will fit tightly into the wall outlet.
If you have any of those old hard rubber "3 prong to 2 prong" adapters, especially if they have burn marks on them, it is time to replace them.
Shopping on Amazon.com allowed me to look for just the right adapter and get two of them for a cheap price. I didn't have to shop all over town for them and wait impatiently in a long line.
By ordering from Amazon.com with a merchandise total of $25 or more, I can buy these as an "Add-on" to my order and still receive the Free Super Saver Shipping.
Don't forget to check the little circle for "Free Super Saver shipping".
I used my Amazon.com e-gift card account balance for this shipment.

In your instructions, you didn't mention the step where the adapter needs to be screwed into the outlet. I see a lot of complaints in other reviews saying that the screw hole in the product they received doesn't match the display picture - the screw hole is further from the adapter, preventing the adapter from being properly screwed to the outside of the outlet.

Did you encounter this same issue when using your adapter and, if so, were you able to find a work-around to allow you to screw it in?
