The Spot: The Original Outlet Wall Mount Hanger Stand for the Echo Dot:

Amazon’s Echo Dot is probably the most popular digital assistant out there because it works great, and it’s really cheap (buy refurbed for $38 here). So it’s no surprise that people are starting to make accessories to go with them. I like this one because it takes one of the normal specifications of the Dot – that it sits flat on a table like a hockey puck – and turns it on its ear by letting you save table space and hang the Dot from the outlet you have it plugged into. A simple, yet great idea!

  • The first and original Outlet holder! Designed in the USA by Mount Genie; we are a small business committed to customer satisfaction.  Please beware of low-quality knockoffs.
  • Fantastic cord management: Gets rid of the long ugly cord and frees up space! Comes with custom shorted cord and works with most plugs! (You use your device’s existing plug.)
  • Installs in seconds and works with VERTICAL and HORIZONTAL outlets. No drilling in your walls required! Great for bathrooms, kitchens, garages, and ALL other rooms.
  • Improves visibility and sound – see and speak to your voice assistant from anywhere in the room!
  • Compatible with most round speakers up to 3.4” diameter x 1.3” tall, including the Echo Dot 2nd Generation, ZOEE Aluminum Round, Smileto Mini Round, BOOMER VIVI Wireless Mini, MindKoo Smart Wireless, and XinDingLi X1 360.

Bostitch Metal Antimicrobial Manual Pencil Sharpener:

Remember going up to the pencil sharpener mounted on the wall by the door in your classroom to touch up the point on your Dixon Ticonderoga #2? Or maybe your parents had one just inside the door to the garage, so you could use it without getting shavings on the floor as you worked on homework. Whatever the case, sometimes the classics are the best. Which is why it’s so cool you can still buy these workhorse hand-cranked pencil sharpeners today.

  • Antimicrobial protected
  • 8-hole dial accomodates a variety of pencil sizes.
  • Dual cutter technology for 6X longer life; replaceable cutters
  • Comes with clams and screw to mount vertically or horizontally.
  • Tip Saver prevents over sharpening
