Plug&Socket / Plug&Socket

Plug&Socket

Plugs and sockets are widely used in our daily life. The metal part of the plugs could be easily bend, broke or wore off and it is inconvenient and insecure for the users. This design dedicated to solve the problem. The metal part is replaced by magnetic material insert into the plug as well as the socket. So you just need to put the plug into the socket and press the red bottom. This design provides a sense of security to the users。
