Connect / Magnetic Outlet Adapter


Connect is a magnetic outlet adapter created to assist those with limitations which simplifies the insertion and removal of plugs, reduces clutter, and is easy to install. Simply plug the base station into a standard outlet, an electronic device into the adapter, and allow the circular magnetic clasp to guide the plug into place automatically. Connect increases functionality and usability of outlets; it increases the number of available receptacles, eliminates the need to orient a plug, and reduces the effort required to use one. Connect is designed with features that ease the entire process of using an outlet dependent electronic device.
