The proliferation of electrical devices means that plug sockets are in increasing demand. Socket splitters and power strips can be used to solve this problem, but can be bulky and unsightly. An innovative socket design called theOUTlet, however, provides more socket space at the push of a button.

TheOUTlet employs a similar pop-out functionality as the Pop-Out Outlet. Whereas that model was conceived to hide socket holes when not in use, however, theOUTlet is aimed at providing more places to plug appliances into.

Designed by US startup Secret Sockets, theOUTlet looks and functions like a typical double plug socket. When pressed, though, a button on the fitting allows the central unit into which the sockets are set to “pop out” from the rest of the fitting, and provide two additional sockets. The additional sockets can be hidden away discreetly until required.

Secret socket says theOUTlet fits standard electrical boxes and can be installed in a matter of minutes. It has a low-profile design with a similar look and feel to conventional socket fittings. The fittings are also tamper-resistant, childproof and can be installed in any orientation.
