Power Swing / Socket

Power Swing
Power Swing

It is quite disturbing when people try to yank a plug, because power strips(power extenders, extension cords) will move and are difficult to use when people unplug. The "Power Swing" is designed to solve this problem and to promote a user-friendly interface. By pressing down on one of those top-plates, it turns into a lever and pops the plug out of its socket. The “Power Swing” is easy to use, safety cautious and also brings fun by the up & down movement.
