replug / Schuko plug


„unPlug“ is an universal design schuko - plug. It has a revolveable cap that helps the user to remove it in a controled and save way. If you want to remove a common plug from the socket, you need to bring up a high force till it pops out suddenly. This is especially a danger for old or handicapped people, who might lose balance and fall. unPlug uses the principle of a sloping level to release the plug in a controlled way and with less expenditure of force. Just a simple turn!
