Leading Socket / Socket

Leading Socket
Leading Socket

Leading Socket is a practical power socket,with a compact exterior, which has the distinguished function of “guidance”.
Power Sockets are commonly used in our daily life. But it’s difficult for us to insert plugs into a socket at night. Not only is this inconvenient, but it could easily lead to electric shocks, especially for vulnerable groups such as children and the elderly. What differentiate Leading Socket from other traditional ones is that it is designed to be “arc-guided”, by changing the original shape of square to circular-arc. Such a design enables users to find the socket more quickly and safely. Even in the dark.
