Twin-Star introduced Safer Socket last year as a way to reduce the number of electrical fires in the home. The patent pending Safer Plug technology is already incorporated in all Twin-Star products, so Twin-Star took that concept one step further and added the same technology to the Safer Socket. The Safer Socket prevents electrical outlets and the appliances plugged into them from overheating and causing damage to your home.

"When we introduced Safer Socket, we knew we had a good product that could help people prevent costly home fires," stated Marc Sculler, Twin-Star International co-president. "Once our retailers saw it, they were eager to add it to their selling floor."

Safer Socket plugs into any existing standard indoor, grounded 3 prong outlet. Its slim design blends into any decor. The user is free to plug any electrical appliance into the device. Safer Socket continually monitors the temperature of the plug with its five tiny thermostats housed inside the unit. It automatically shuts off the plugged-in appliance if it detects an unsafe rise in temperature that could lead to an electrical fire. Safer Socket provides added security for older or loose plugs, or where electrical devices like holiday lights, cooking appliances, heaters and fans are left plugged in and unattended.
