The challenge

Original metal version
Later 3D printed version …
… and USB memory stick

The client’s limited dexterity means that she cannot plug and unplug the charger of her tablet.

A bracket was made from two brass rings soldered to a small brass plate and attached to the charging plug with cable ties.  The client no longer relies on others to recharge her tablet.

This aid was subsequently replaced with a similar one made in ABS plastic by 3D printing with matching holder for a USB memory stick.

A similar problem and different solution: Laptop charging plug
