Question on surge protectors / carpets / tinfoil?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I recently set up a PS3 in a living room. The living room is carpeted. In order for this to work, I MUST place the surge protector on the carpet. I'm trying to reduce the possibility of a fire hazard. Is there something I can put between the surge protector and the carpet to reduce the threat? I was thinking of putting a triple layer of tinfoil, or something metallic on the carpet. Any generic tips?

What do you guys think?

Thanks!
