Surge protector question

So I currently have a dilemma with my surge protectors. I have a dual outlet behind my bed and I bought this one because of the flat plug and so I can have my bed flat against the wall.


I’ve been using this for my computer stuff. But now I wanna add another surge protector of the same kind but I can’t plug them both on the wall outlet due to them having flat plugs.

What I did in the meantime is plug a smaller surge protector with a plug that isn’t flat and then used that surge protector as an extension so I can plug my new surge protector.


So now I’m wondering if I can use something like this to plug both of my bigger surge protectors and to be able to have my bed completely flat again.


Please let me know if there’s a safer way to do this or if I can proceed with my plan without any issues.

Thank you!

Maybe something like this
or the 4 outlet option.

Then use the flat plug surge protectors.
