Guard socket / socket

Guard socket

Nowadays, most of the sockets are used directly. However, children are always curious to explore new things, some children may accidentally touch sockets or the switch buttons in their sleep, consequently causing some unforeseen events or disasters.
The design of putting the switch button inside the socket can effectively prevent children from inadvertently touching. Moreover, the separate arrangement of three-hole outlet and two hole outlet can avoid the common embarrassment that you cannot use both the three hole outlet and two-hole outlet simultaneously since the three pin plug is too big.
