Don't Jerk Your Power Cables!

Every day I get mail. Every once in awhile I get companies that send me products to review, and share information about with all of you. Those are always fun. Today, I got a package with a tin full of little plastic doo-hickeys. The paperwork with it said “Stop Jerking!” HUH? Stop jerking what??

Jerkstopper has come up with a way to use an unused port on your notebook to tether down your power cable. Technically it’s a CRD (Cable Retention Device) designed to utilize any existing port (USB, RJ11 or RJ45) on a laptop computer as a stay or restraint to keep the very fragile AC power connector from being damaged. Repairs to this connector can range from $100 to $250 or more if repairable. The JerkStoppe Cable Retention Device keeps you and others from causing costly damage to your Laptop Computer. For ten dollars, you get three connectors: 1 each USB, RJ45 & RJ11. Plus… you also get a one year money back guarantee!

Here are some of the problems you can now avoid, by using the Jerkstopper:

  • The power LED and/or battery charge LED flicker when you wiggle the power cord and/or the AC adapter tip on the back or your laptop.
  • Laptop suffers from spontaneous and/or instantaneous power-downs for no apparent reason.
  • Laptop only runs when you keep the power cord and plug in a certain direction.. Movement of the AC power adapter plug causes power “glitches” or outages.
  • Strange “clicking” noises coming from the area near the power plug. Laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently.
  • Laptop refuses to start or charge a properly inserted battery. Laptop appears to be “dead” when you plug AC adapter.
  • Laptop suddenly shuts off without any warning. Sparks come out of the back of your laptop.
  • Laptop will not charge the battery and/or Laptop only runs on battery power.

At only $10.00… and having a full one year guarantee… what are you waiting for?

  1. Oh wow, these videos get worst by the minute, everytime I give this guy a chance and hope he makes more interesting or useful videos he somehow manages to make a lamer one.

    This shit is for freakin retards.

  2. a magnetic adapter that’s more like the ones on the macbook would make more sense to me. if you step on it, like I have it pops out

    Wow when I seen this thing I thought it is terrible! Can you believe it?

    Well, I will be nice… I have not seen that thing personally but, there is a better way to do this and it is to use the Kingston security lock hole, 99% of the laptops have them and 99% of the time it is open. As far as I know, most of the ports at least in my HP are on one board and if I mess up one of them I will have to replace more than if I would of damaged the power port. Lastly the security hole may look week (like my port looks plastic) but it is metal on the inside so it is far easier to brake a fragile port than that little overlooked security port.

    Well, If you can write back to that person and suggest it to him (if he does not already has it) than it may be a nice addition to his collection.

    Hope it was helpful.

    I know you haven’t seen one but the JerkStopper is designed not to damage your ports should you drop kick your system across the room. The device was designed to stop the day-in and day-out tugging and (yes) jerking on the fragile power pin in most laptops.

    We have a Jerkstoppers coming for both the Kensington lock and for cable locks as well as a JerkStopper product for Professional Photographers. Watch the site for news.
