Inserting Electrical Plugs
When I'm pushing the prongs of an electrical plug into a wall socket, I hold the plug with my thumb and first finger and steady my hand by resting the heel of my hand against the wall just above the socket. Then I use my little finger, my ring finger and my middle finger to feel the top edge and corner of the socket plate. From that position, it is easy to aim the prongs of the plug directly into the holes of the wall socket. There is no problem with touching the prongs at any time.
