CHICAGO, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Electrical outlets injure nearly 4,000 children every year and, tragically, over 100 die of outlet related electrocutions. Now a revolutionary new safeguard is available to prevent these accidents. The Guardian Angel® Shockproof Safety Outlet is the first and only 100 percent shockproof electrical outlet.
"Our Shockproof Safety Outlet is such a simple and affordable safeguard, its destined to become a standard safety item for any home with small children," said Dan Masterson, founder and CEO of Guardian Angel Enterprises. "This product provides parents with peace of mind by preventing injuries and saving kid's lives."
Guardian Angel is utilizing fundraising platform Indiegogo to build support and distribution for its initial product launch. A video explaining the product technology and showing it in action is available to watch at Indiegogo Outlet Campaign.
Traditional outlet plugs block outlet access but the current is still flowing and the risk of electric shock remains. Only the Guardian Angel Outlet allows continuous access to power while using sensor technology to ensure 100 percent shockproof protection. The outlet is easy for adults to use yet it cannot be circumvented by childhood curiosity—if an inappropriate object such as a finger or paperclip approaches the outlet, power is instantly shut off. Once the item is removed, power will resume safely.
The Guardian Angel Outlet won the MIT Enterprise Forum of Chicago's Whiteboard Challenge in 2008 as a compelling business idea and it has already received enthusiastic praise from parents. The outlet is available online immediately and has a suggested retail price of $19.99.
