HDMI Angle Adapters are an inexpensive solution to routing your HDMI cables. Your HDTV or HD computer monitor is super thin but the HDMI cables might add thickness if the ports face the wall or even in the wrong direction. These angled HDMI adapters help you avoid having to bend your HDMI cables excessively which may damage the cable, short out the cable or even worse, damage the ports on your expensive equipment. The company says they support resolutions up to 4K. On my new computer monitor the HDMI cable comes directly out the back, and using one of these let me get it much closer to the wall by redirecting the cable to the right. (Or the left, they make both.)
