PULL LIGHTLY / Plug of Energy conserving solution that utilizes your habit

PULL LIGHTLY
PULL LIGHTLY

Many people pull off the cord when they want to separate the power plug from the electric outlet, while knowing that their behavior is dangerous. To leverage on rather than forbid such habit, I suggest a new concept for power plugs: "PULL LIGHTLY". This would shut off the standby power without actually removing the plug from the outlet.

"PULL LIGHTLY" is consisted of a plug and a pull activating switch mounted inside the plug. The switch is connected to the electric wire and would be activated when the wire is pulled slightly.
