Auto-Lift Iron Has Extending Feet To Make Ironing Safter

arieteautolift

By Chris Scott Barr

I can’t say that I do much ironing, mostly because I don’t wear many clothes that specifically require an iron to make them look right. I have done a bit and one of the things I am always most paranoid about is knocking over the hot iron when I’ve set it down for a moment. With that hot metal plate exposed while it’s just sitting there, it is rather dangerous. Not only could you bump into it and burn yourself, but since it is resting on one of its smaller sides, it could also be easily knocked onto the floor.

The Auto-Lift iron was designed to eliminate the aforementioned hazards, along with one other. The otherwise-regular iron has a pair of feet on the hot metal part which extend outward when the device is not in use. This leaves less of the iron exposed, and keeps it considerably more stable. The best part is that it actually knows exactly when you are using it. There is a sensor in the handle which detects whether or not your hand is upon it and engages the feet when appropriate. Now you also won’t have to worry about getting distracted while in the middle of ironing. The Auto-Lift currently retails for around $95.

    This is really a marvelous invention! Now we can relax while doing these kinds of things especially those nannies and moms who are getting troubled in ironing. The new technology today is really helpful to us.
