  • The plug is very easy to locate - it guides itself in
  • It takes only a limited push to engage the plug - less than 1/3 of that for a normal plug.
  • Taking the plug out is also very easy and can be done with one finger.
  • The plug is inherently very safe - a strong pull on the cord disengages it, and the socket switches itself off when the plug is taken out - it is not possible to push things into a live contact.

We exhibited the Dolman Cobra at the Grand Designs Show, last October. There was a huge amount of interest, from people wanting to buy it, as well as possible development partners.
