The ‘Plugster’ is a simple device, it is free and has been provided by North Notts Lions. Plugster makes the removal of electric plugs from the socket easier for those with arthritis or similar problems and aids the identification of appliances. The design of most moulded 13 amp electric plugs makes them very difficult to grip and unplug. For anyone with a grip problem it can be almost impossible to grip and pull a plug out of the electric socket. When plugs are put into four-way extensions, the plugs are so close together that most people cannot grip both sides of any of the plugs. The Plugster was designed to help the elderly and disabled by Ian Davies, inspired by his own chronic illness and a desire to help others with a task that many take for granted. The Plugster is a shaped piece of reinforced/strengthened paper which loosely wraps around the plug and secures at the back of the plug over the three pins. It forms an extra strong handle, that makes it easy to remove plugs from their sockets. The Plugster can also be easily labelled which means, no more pulling out the wrong plug! The Plugster can also help prevent falls in the elderly. When gripping and pulling a plug out, their balance can be affected and if their grip fails then they could lose their balance and fall over.
