EZ-SOCKET / socket



For elderly people, nearsighted people, or people with hand tremors, it is difficult to put an electric plug into the socket especially when the light is dim. EZ-Socket is a new type of socket designed to solve the problem.

With 3 funnel-shaped tracks on the surface of EZ-Socket, the electric plug can be slipped down on the tracks smoothly and inserted into the holes accurately. In addition, the tracks are made from the fluorescent material so that they can be found easily in the dark.
