RPNS / Refrigerator Protection


The design of Refrigerator Protective Net System offers the solution to the everyday problem of accidently dropping items from a full refrigerator, especially fragile things like a glass of milk or an egg, when opening the door of, or when grabbing something deep inside the refrigerator. The protective net pops and rotates out automatically and simultaneously with the opening of the refrigerator door under the force of the spring locating at the axis to insure the absolute safety of the items inside the refrigerator, and the protective net automatically rotates back into the slot along with the closing of the door.
