Un-plug / socket

Un-plug
Un-plug

Unplugging our electrical appliances can help energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. Yet, it is invariably inconvenient to pull out plugs, especially those located below waist height. Furthermore, plugs which are unplugged are often a safety hazard.
The aforementioned design can be used with existing sockets and it is powered by pressing a press switch. A blue light can also remind the user that the plug has not been disconnected from the mains. Moreover, it's both secure and handy.
