K-switch / Switch

K-switch
K-switch

Owing to the height, it seems that children might have some trouble doing something simple. Such as, turn on the light.
Waking up at the very dark night, many children can't go to the bathroom alone because of the fear of darkness. It is the distance between the light switch and them that they have to ask for their parents' help.
This makes children frustrated in the period of being independent.
K-Switch is a simple mechanism which can solve these problem and it doesn't change the original usage.
In addition to kids, K-switch will bring a more convenient life to those people in need.
