Thought Out updates MagStay MagSafe collar

What happens if you need to use the ethernet port, it looks like you'll not be able to use the collar.

At least for me, the only time I can imagine a situation "where it's safe to circumvent the MagSafe's protection" is where it's improbable the power cord would accidentally get hooked by a foot or something else passing by. But, in that scenario, it's also unlikely the power cord might accidentally disconnect.
I agree with maflynn: the collar is a solution searching for a problem.
I wouldn't pick one up even if they were being passed out for free at a trade show.

Was their product press release dated April 1st.?.
Pity Apple didn't redesign the MagSafe connector,(right-angled or otherwise), along the lines of the more substantial unit used on the new LED Cinema Display power relay cable.
