Electrical Outlet Repair Simplified…
The electrical outlet in the home is the focus of the story Jessica Haynes shared with us back in 2016. She was living in an older home and several of them were loose. She invented the Socket Saver and shared with us what it took to turn an idea into a product on the market.
The journey started when Haynes had had it with her loose wall sockets saying to her husband, “I’m tired of holding my hand next to the plug to keep it from falling out when I’m drying my hair. And the cord keeps falling out when I vacuum.” It was from this frustration that Barry woke up one morning and said, “I have an idea.” Barry Connelly, a commercial pilot, went into his garage with a small plastic child safety device used to prevent children from shocks from an electrical outlet and using a file, knife, and sandpaper, created the Socket Saver ™.
The invention was so simple.
One-Step. Simply slide the Socket Saver ™ over an appliance plug and insert into the loose electrical outlet. No more plugs falling out! Need to call an electrician or handyman….No. Not even a need to open the circuit breaker palel. No electrical or mechanical skills needed. Individuals could save money and time with the problem solved in seconds.
The Socket Saver ™ had the advantage of Simplicity, Durability, and Low Cost.
These are the key points that Henry Ford followed, stating, “You will win the hearts of your customers.”
Today the Socket Saver ™ is a popular product in ACE Hardware and TRUE VALUE stores. The Corporate Market continues to grow. Why? It is perfect for older homes and buildings, rental units, hotels/motels, Internet cafes, airports … or any location with loose wall sockets. It is versatile for both residential and commercial use. This invention is excellent for businesses such as Carpet Cleaning, House Cleaning, Property Management, Real Estate Agencies, and other businesses that use outlets to serve their customers.
You can take it with you!
Customers say they keep a few Socket Savers ™ in their travel bag or purse when they travel. Most hotels/motels have loose plugs making it difficult to recharge cell phones or electronic devices. The charging stations at airports are often worn out…you know wall sockets loose. Solution? The Socket Saver ™.
Getting to this point of success involved trial and error, and learning what to do and what not to do. Haynes and Connelly have these suggestions to share about coming up with an idea and turning it into a successful company.
When you have an idea, write it down … when you thought of it and date it.
Get a patent-pending document so your idea is registered and won’t go to someone else who is thinking of the same idea. We have heard so many stories from people that had a great idea but didn’t follow through immediately and lost their chance for ownership.
