Single hand socket / Eco Solutions

Single hand socket
Single hand socket

The electrical equipment are always in a state of power consumption when they are standby.To ensure safety and save power,we often pull out the plug after using the electrical equipment.However,it’s very troublesome to do it by double hands with physical strength.Whats worse,it’s very dangerous to pull out the plug with electric sparks.In order to solve this problem,we invent this single hand socket.Our product combines with the theory of the scale device of ballpoint pen and the on-and-off of power switch.When you press on the socket by single hand with strength,the plug will be elevated.At the same time,the power supply will be turned off.
