When having to work on electrical outlets and switches, it may not always be possible to switch off the power to the outlet prior to work. This can be very dangerous but necessary in certain situations. To increase safety, an inventor from Reading, PA., has developed a solution to this problem.
As the inventor explained, "I work in a hospital in the maintenance department and I often work with electrical outlets and light switches. Sometimes I can't turn off the power to the area because of the patients, so I am forced to work with a live electrical current. This is very dangerous and I keep getting shocked, which prompted me to develop a solution. My design prevents electrical shocks when you are forced to work with outlets and switches that are live."
His invention, the SAFETY CONNECT, increases the safety of the work environment for electricians, handymen and do-it-yourselfers by preventing electrical shocks from accidental contact with live electrical wires. The invention minimizes downtime due to injury or confusion as to which breaker needs to be switched, and it provides peace of mind when on the job. Ideal for use in medical and professional buildings wherein the contractor cannot shut off the power, it makes it much easier to install or replace electrical outlets or switches. Additionally, the device is durable, convenient and easy to install.
The original design was submitted to the King of Prussia office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
