Plugs made easy

Do you know someone who struggles with plugs ?

Even at my tender age I have noticed my hands are not as capable as they were years ago and I struggle with plugs. Elderly people also often have weakened wrists and or arthritis in their hands. A fabulous helping hand is available ( sorry for the pun ) in the form of these extremely affordable and simple to fit and use Plugmate Plug Removers

You simply put the prongs of the plug through the holes of both ends of the plugmate before plugging it in and it creates a handle.  This handle then allows the plug to be removed far more easily.

Available from Amazon in packs of 5 (15 x Plugmate Plug Removers (3 packs of 5))
they cost £4.25 plus a £1.85 postage and package fee. They are also available in shops selling disability aids.


These plug-mates work by slipping the covers over the prongs of the plug before it is inserted into the socket. There is even a handy sticker to identify the appliance the plug related to.

This avoids removing the wrong plug as I so often manage to do.
