The purpose of a MagSafe connector is to have the power cable disconnect without pulling your laptop off the table should something snag the cable, but the MagStay MS-01 offers you a way to keep the cable firmly connected to your laptop if that feature bothers you. The MagStay Power Connection Lock for MagSafe 2 accessory from Thoughtout.biz slides over the MagSafe 2 connector and then clips on your MacBook rather like an old-fashioned clothes pin would. There’s even a set screw to tighten it on the laptop. You can use the connector with the laptop open or closed or even when the computer is stored. The MagStay connector is made of a white polymer, and it has openings so you can see the power indicator light on the MagSafe 2 connector. The MagStay MS-01 works with the 13″ and 15″ MacBook Pros with Retina displays and is available now for $19.99. There are two other models available for other MacBooks, but none of them seem to work with Airs.
