Easy-insert Socket / socket

Easy-insert Socket

When the environment is dark or the socket is shaded by some furniture, it is quite difficult for people to insert the plug, especially for people with poor eyesight. In these situations, people have to try many times to succeed in inserting plug.
In our design "Easy-insert Socket", there is angular surface on the socket. With the angular surface, even if people insert slantingly, the plug can slide into the holes of the socket smoothly.
