Bolt / Electrical Outlet


When was the last time you thought about an electrical outlet? Did you know that overloaded outlets are the primary source of residential fires in the United States? How about that they are a leading cause of child injuries requiring medical attention. Bolt is a complete reinvention of the common electrical outlet. It prevents overload by informing the user of the electrical capacity available for consumption. It also eliminates all danger that outlets pose to consumers. Furthermore Bolt and it’s associated components are is molded from recycled PVC plastic.
