The present invention reduces this risk by providing a safer and more comfortable plug design. The plug design includes a handle on each side of the plug housing so that the user can remove the plug with greater ease than conventional plugs. Moreover, by placing his fingers in the handles, the user is prevented from touching the plug before it is fully disengaged from the electric outlet.
