I received the plug adapter well before the estmated delivery date, which surprised me since it was being shipped from Hong Kong. It arrived in excellent condition. I purchased this item in preparation for a trip to Europe this fall, so have not yet had an opportunity to use it. However, it appears quite sturdy and well designed. Note of interest - I recently found the exact same adapter in a major department store, selling for four times the price I paid. The only difference was that the department store adapter carried the logo of a well known luggage manufacturer. I will write again once I've had a chance to use it.
