As with a lot of Lidl and Aldi stuff when its in bins it can get
knocked about and you have to be careful when picking one to buy.
However while most Lidl, Aldi customesr may be hardened to
this, this wouldn't be a defence I imagine if someone
managed to kill themselves with one of these.
As you didn't mention having done so, I emailed your link to
Lidl explaining this had been posted on a forum by somebody else
rather than me. Hope that's o.k.
In addition this looks to be a really bad design with a lot of
totally unnecessary frills which compromise its usefulness in
terms of being as unobtrusive as possible, and its safety.
The standard design is a two part shell, top and bottom screwed
together with no fancy bits at the end to break off. This one is
in two colours black and white with ribbed sides and bits on the end
by the looks of things. Being a compromise IMO extension leads are
never going to look good, no matter how many lights you stick on
them. So just plain and simple will do.
Just don't get me started on "soft" bread. Or "even softer".
Just because some idiots think that if bread is soft then it must be fresh, there
seems to be a race to the bottom to see who can make the softest loaf which
can still actually stand up unsupported.
Anyone would think nobody in this country any longer had any teeth.

Softer loaves possibly have less dough and more air. Air is cheaper then dough.
Bread weight regulations (which started in 1266) were repealed in 2008 and loaves no longer have to weigh multiples of 400g.

I suppose that those in the clip could have been broken by careless

What I find of concern is that they're so easily damaged - an extension
lead, even if used on a desk, is going to get some knocks.
Certainly wouldn't want it in a workshop. As for that hanging loop...
The construction doesn't look any worse than a half decent one and
certainly better than the ones from Poundland.
I suppose the trouble with extensions is that they're unlike any other
device where the flying bits of mains-level innards are (usually)
Where are we going and why am I in this handbasket?
