To unplug an electric appliance is a daily procedure with frequently occurring difficulties. For this, we often misuse the cable, because it seems to be much easier to catch hold of it and pull at. But by doing so, we cause loose contacts or even worse situations.

(+plus minus -) is made to ease the act of grabbing a plug.
Punched out of a 0.5mm strong plastic foil, it’s wrapped around the plug and builds two loops jutting out from the socket.
By using different colours, unities between plugs and electric appliances can be created and recognized easily.
