Stubborn Iron / Electric iron

Stubborn Iron
Stubborn Iron

“Stubborn Iron” is a new electric iron, designed to provide a safe ironing operation. The product consists of a normal electric iron as the upper part, an “U” shape frame base and a spring to connect the two parts. The spring can support the upper part and keep it open at a certain angle. When the user pushes down the handle on the upper part to iron the clothes, the iron switches on, when the user lets go of the handle, it will spring back and switch off. Based on the unique design, the “stubborn iron” is able to avert danger, which it is caused in the negligence of the user, or in the case of emergency.
