Pull-me-out Adapters / adapter

Pull-me-out Adapters
Pull-me-out Adapters

Pull-me-out adapter designs are aimed to reduce consuming standby-power by making users to separate adapters from wall outlets. This concept is suggested because people cannot recognize how much energy is wasted, and even when they notice, they are not motivated to pull the plugs out. The door knob styled Pull-me-out adapter helps users physically while pulling out, by the shape graspable easily and by giving a ring for fingers. And when a user happens to look at the carrot shaped adapter on the outlets, he or she will feel like pulling up a grown up carrot.
