Switch Socket / Socket

Switch Socket
Switch Socket

The design of this product keeps both convenience and energy conservation in mind. Power only comes through while the socket is turned(switched), and would be cut off when turned back. This allows the user to not unplug the device when they are not being used, and also prevents the plugs from being scattered around the floor.
When in the turned state, a lock in the socket would protects the electronic device from sudden power cutoff and also help avoid the accident of babies being injured by pulling out the plug themselves.The track and coloring on the surface of Switch Socket serve as guidances for letting the plug in.
