Easy-Plug
Easy-Plug

For blinds, current plug-socket is not easy to use. It is difficult matching the plug to the socket, which is not ether convenient or safe.
The Easy-Plug is designed as follows to improve the experience of using plug and socket.
 The shape of the end of the plug makes it easy to match the plug and the socket;
 The pins are hid in the plug and fixed by a spring support. When the plug matches the socket, the trigger on the socket will release the spring support and push out the pins, and which will be pulled into the plug again by the spring support while the plug is out of the socket;
 The robber handle makes it easy to hold the plug.
