Porcelain Socket / appliances

Porcelain Socket
Porcelain Socket

This new socket integrates aesthetic and utility value. Its appearance is a piece of blue and white porcelain, which first appeared in Tang Dynasty in China. Many problems occur when using a socket: feet of the plug don’t match the poles on the socket; too tight to unplug a plug; hard to locate a socket at night... This new socket solves these problems: replaces poles by three slots, which can apply to both two feet and three feet plugs; curved outline enables one to slide a plug out easily with one hand; slots and patterns will gleam to locate itself at night. Also, up-right position will save space, and china is a safe insulating material.
