    OK, to be fair, it is the only $25 accessory Tesla offers but I find this wall connector cable organizer very handy and quite a bargain. Sure helps out with the cable clutter.

    sold out. Price increase must be pending :cool:

    I bought one of those a couple of years back as a hanger for my mobile charger as well. It was to replace a simple hanger purchased from Home Depot. I wanted to love the tesla hanger but ended up hating it because the handle simply refused to stay inside the holder. The slightest touch or jostle and the handle would go clattering to the garage floor. Now the cable and handle simply get wrapped on top of it, the original usage intention long forgotten. Maybe they've improved since then - I hope so.

    hummm, I see what you mean. It does wobble a bit inside it. Hasn't come off its rocker yet but I can see how it would.

    Wonder if it fits better with the HPWC? That was its original usage I believe. Maybe there's a slight difference in the handles? (I'm grasping at straws here - haven't thought about this in a while)

    I got one and installed it outside on my wall for use with my UMC. It's totally compatible with the UMC (since it has the same exact handle as the HPWC) and very handy. It keeps the cable organized and looks really nice too. It's very easy to store and remove the handle inside the receptacle when you're in a rush to get out.

    is that a holder for your "brick" as well? Where did you get that? Pulling on the outlet is my bigger concern right now.

    My HPWC has the same one, it's kind of crappy. The handle falls out too easily so I let the handle hang since I loop it over top.

    Yep. It's good - not great (does wobble as people say). IMG_1600.JPG

    Ask @ggenge about his recent experience with the wall hook. His adapter fell out and broke (he was able to bend the flimsy aluminum back in place) - it isn't the most secure design for sure. I suspect it is "sold out" at Tesla while they redesign a better one. @ggenge called Tesla and they mentioned numerous similar cases virtually acknowledging the flaw of the holder.

    A replacement cable (for the HPWC) was $250+
