Plug in Higher / socket

Plug in Higher
Plug in Higher

Due to the influence of Chinese culture, there are generations living together in one family, and often the seniors take care of the children. The design is a safe extended socket which is 120 cm from the ground. The common socket is usually only 20-30 cm from the ground; this location is dangerous for children and inconvenient for seniors. This one-piece design has an alarm on its top which is to remind users to pull the plug out when it is no longer required.
