Solving the Struggle: Awkward Bathroom Outlets

How Docking Drawer was used by one customer to combat the all-too-common complaint of having too few or awkwardly placed bathroom outlets.
Solving the Struggle: Awkward Bathroom Outlets

Nobody wants to start their day with a struggle. Which was the case for this now-customer, Joshua, who’s only bathroom outlets existed on the outside of these dual vanity sinks, creating a hazardous web of cords and accessories crossing over the sink when devices were connected and in use.

In Joshua’s search to come up with a solution, he “thought about doing a new outlet in the center, just above the counter. But the look of 10 outlets just didn’t work.” That’s when he began researching alternative ideas, and landed on Docking Drawer. Not only would Docking Drawer solve the issue of powering styling tools and accessories awkwardly over the sink by adding a power source that would allow his family to power accessories from right inside the middle vanity drawer, Joshua found peace of mind in learning about our interlocking safety features that de-energize the outlet when surrounding temperature exceed 120 degrees.

“We found the Docking Drawer and loved the idea! Multiple outlets, hidden and [with a] safety switch are all GREAT ideas!” -Joshua

With the help of a few basic power tools and the 7 screws included in each package, this homeowner was able to install his Docking Drawer outlet into his existing vanity drawer himself by first running power to the back of the cabinet wall, then following our detailed cutout templates and installation instructions to specify the outlet inside the drawer.
