This mod is for anyone who owns certain tools such as a soldering iron and/or a hot glue gun that have to be unplugged every time you're done with it. It's also good for many other uses and it's nice to have several grounded outlets at hand right at your hip.
Before starting this mod, think about placement and where you're going to plug it in...as I state in my final thoughts, It's a good Idea to have a power strip at the back of the bench in which you can plug this one into. So think about the depth of your bench.
Also I hate that I have to say this, but once the power strip is open, don't plug it in until it's closed again.
Power Strip with appropriate length cord
Drill (preferably powered)
1/2" Drill bit (spade bit will work the best for most drills)
Desoldering wick or tool (not necessary but handy)
Step 1: Open it up
First step is to open up the power strip. Mine was a cheap Belkin brand one that I bought for $3 at Home Depot. It had some of those safety screws that can only be tightened (the ones with the two triangles that have a slope on one side). I found that it was quite easy to remove these screws just by adding more pressure with a flat-head screwdriver whilst turning counter clockwise.
There were 3 security screws and two #2 phillips on this specific model.
