About

Plugs can be a dangerous thing! Whether you are a parent concerned about your child messing with an outlet or vacuuming and your plug pops out, Secure-Connect will be able to help you!

The Secure Connect is the brain child of Shawn Warner, an electrical engineer and inventor, and the father of two. Shawn couldn't leave the room without his daughter running to an outlet and trying to play with the plug. After an internet search to try and find something to deter his daughter proved futile he set off to his basement. There he started melting various child safety products together and eventually made the very first working prototype. He then enlisted the help of Jason Davis (CEO and Mike Kessling (CBO) to form Warners Innovative Solutions, Inc. We then started with the CAD designing, then to 3D printing. We then got out prototyping tool done and FINALLY we got and final product! During the process we were able to set up our offices in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and set up manufacturing facilities domestically in Erie, Pa. We were able to make Secure-Connect green (not the color, well, we can make them green but in this case we mean the Al Gore green) by making it from recycled materials! And after rigorous testing we secured the Good Housekeeping seal of quality in June 2012!

Secure-Connect holds your plug into an outlet making sure your connection stays perfect! And here's the best part; it's easy to use! Without having to loosen a wall pate just slide the legs behind the plate, clip around the cord, and push tight!

Secure-Connect can be used to safely and securely plug in anything; Pesky Apple plugs, Cell phone chargers, Aquariums, Deep Freezes, PCs, Vacuums, TVs, Home Theater, Kitchen, Print/Fax, Alarm Systems, Extension Cords, Refrigerators, Christmas Lights, Construction Sites, Dishwashers, and anything you don't want unplugged!

Using Secure-Connect saves electricity and lives! Secure-Connect battles Voltage Drop! When a plug is not fully plugged in, it lessens the surface area of the plug. This creates a greater pull of electricity from the grid as well as makes the plugged in device work harder! AND Secure-Connect can decrease the number of household fires due to faulty connections!A large number of these fires are started by plugs not inserted fully, leading to increased temperature of the outlet!

Secure-Connect is made in the USA out of recycled materials PLUS it has received the Good Housekeeping seal of quality!

This is our companies launching point! We have the tools, we have the infrastructure, we have the supply chain lined up, and we have the know-how, but now we need some money to help us get product ready for sales and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Thank you so much for your interest in our product, and we hope you can help us 'kickstart' our company and help us help people like you achieve their dreams!

Risks and challenges

We have done the long, painstaking, and EXPENSIVE tasking of design, prototyping and testing, but now its time to start producing!

We have set up sales agencies to go out and sell the Secure-Connect. In fact, we have meetings set up with big time companies like The Home Depot, Dollar General, Lowes Home Improvement, and QVC! But what are we to do when we get orders!?

This is where YOU come in! If we can reach our $8,000 goal, that will give us enough inventory to handle initial orders and get things moving along nicely.
