Try giving your Elrods some support with cotton string. It will aid in suspending them off the floor and away from other cables. I hope this helps. Happy Listening!

Dear Psychicanimal, Absolutely, they do have a high bite rate, but please let me clarify. The Wattgate has a very high grip rate as well as improved contact surface area with quality triple plating for outstanding a/c transmission. However, the P&S (Acme) will "bite" as if it has teeth (to the point it can distort the surface of the blades). It seems like he is having trouble falling out (don't we all) and this can be the answer to his problem. I am not placing the P&S (Acme) above the Wattgate outlet. But they do tend to "snag" the plug blades to help with his issue. Sorry for any misunderstandings and I hope this helps clarify my explanation.
As some of my past posts have reflected, i'm a big fan of Hubbel products. Having said that, these specific P&S plugs have a noticeably better "grip". If you read the link that i provided above at VH Audio, Chris specifically mentions the comparison in "bite" between the Pass & Seymour's and the Hubbel's. Sean
I recently installed a number of PorterPorts, but I also had an opportunity to compare then to some P&S duplexes. I'd have to say that each seemed to have excellent grip, and were about on par as far as that goes (based upon my very non-scientific observations). However, the Hubbell seemed to be a tad better quality as far as the connectors and contacts, though. I can't imagine either of them having a problem holding onto any plug. In fact, it can be somewhat difficult to get certain plugs out, they grip so hard!
