    The sturdier, longer cord you already ordered should do that.

    Hi Pinkipad. - have to agree w/ TP, i.e. the 8-pin adapter is plenty sturdy - wife and I have been using them for 5 years or so and we've never had one fray or break - sometimes a few have stopped working for whatever reason, but simply replaced. Let me ask if you have had an experience w/ the lightning adapter 'breaking'? Dave :)

    Thank you both. I’m not in a normal usage situation. Briefly I’m in bed and the cord plugs into the strip outlet behind my bed. It has to go around the bed frame for fire drill reasons. So it pulls even with me using the six foot cord.

    I need the protection at the connection point so it won’t break if I pull it across my lap without grabbing the wire first

    I’ve merged the new thread which you started on the subject of the 8P to 30 P adapter to the existing thread you started earlier. This will avoid the confusion of having multiple threads on the same subject.

    How about a short electric extension cord to move the power supply closer to the head of the bed?

    Outlet —— Strip —— elect cord —— power supply —— USB-A/Lighting —— iPad.

    For safety reasons, strips or extension cords aren’t allowed. I had one and it was removed.

    I see. Similar to Mom’s health care center then.

    In that case, since they allow the adaptor, perhaps a USB-A cable extender would be ok. It would double your cord length. Here is a promising one. Ask first, of course.

    Thanks, I’ll check it out. I’m in a private medical group home with three other people. They have rules for everything!
