The problem here is that the pair of biners at the bottom are not evenly stranded. If you weight the power point it will pull down the right biner (less stranded) while the left biner (more stranded) goes up ... until the power point contacts the right biner at which point I guess it stabilizes (not quite enough coffee).

I'm assuming everything can slide and friction is negligible, which I think is the intent.

Edit: I think I pretty much said the same thing as bigjohnnyc. And I'm assuming the power point is on a sliding X. Take that out and I think the stability issue goes away.
