SockLock / socket lock

SockLock
SockLock

There are many electro gadgets, cables and sockets in our fl ats. Therefore
babies are used to put their fi ngers in the socket. The results are electric
shocks and even electrocution.
We have developed an alternative, which protects our babies! A hinged plate
prevents the direct contact with the electricity. The power source could be
revealed by simply pressing and twisting with a common plug. Our concept
realizes the protective function without removing the safety plate.
