Cord Securing Plug Faceplate Invented (KSC-1139)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Cord Lock, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Once electrical outlets become worn down, plugs tend to easily fall out of them. This is especially true for electrical devices that are moved by the user while plugged in, such as vacuum cleaners, handheld kitchen appliances or mobile devices being charged.

An inventor from Concordia, Mo., has invented the patent-pending CORD LOCK, a replacement faceplate for outlets that helps secure traditional plugs. "I invented this device after years of complaining that something like this should exist," said the inventor. "I decided to take initiative and create it myself." CORD LOCK eliminates the frustration associated with having to re-plug in a cord that has fallen out during use.

This invention saves busy homeowners time and effort. Its installation is quick and easy, and it can be adapted for use on most traditional outlets.

The original design was submitted to the Kansas City office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
