Safer Plug / plug

Safer Plug

It’s not a rare case that people especially children get an electric shock for touching the metal part of a plug while pulling the plug out of the socket or inserting it.
Safer Plug is aimed to solve such a grave problem by sheathing the plug with a hollow membrane of malleable silicone so our fingers won’t touch the metal part while the plug can work normally.
