Safe Soft Plug / Plug

Safe Soft Plug
Safe Soft Plug

Usually children cannot realize that it is very dangerous to touch the metal part when plugging in or pulling out plugs. Contrary to lots of such accidents reported every year, however, no effective solutions have been provided yet.
Our simple and cheap design named Safe Soft Plug has prevented this potential danger successfully by adding a rubber cover in the front of the plug. When plugged into the socket, the rubber cover would deform to fill the gap between the plug and socket at the same time. Thus, the metal part would no longer be exposed outside, and fingers would not touch the metal part easily.
