the safe socket

This is an electrical outlet which can make your life easier. It provides a safe way to insert and pull the plug. The only thing you do is gently press the square panel and a cambered device with slots will pop up and also the connecting point will be power-off in the same time. Then slide the plug into the guiding groove and push the device back and it will reconnect to the power automatically. It’s absolutely safe because the device is power-off once it is popped up. So it is very suit to the children, senior citizen and the blind to use. It keeps the wires tidy and also waterproof. It can be hung on the wall or placed on the desk.
