Michael Barzman and Bryan O’Connell are the two entrepreneurs behind Invisiplug, a surge protector that’s designed to blend into wooden floors. While most generic surge protectors (or power strips) come in either a stark white or black, Invisiplug comes in three wooden designs – Natural, Medium Cherry and Dark Oak.

Barzman and O’Connell pitched Invisiplug on Shark Tank in 2014 and made a deal with Lori Greiner ($125,000 for 10% and a $1 per unit royalty until she makes her money back…and 25 cents per unit in perpetuity). Invisiplug is now available at Lowe’s, Sears, Kmart, and Amazon. The standard model lists for $19.99; the deluxe model (with two USB ports) goes for $29.99 — but they can be purchased for less if you hunt around.
