MagSafe power adapter was only made to be accidentally yanked out in 4 specific ways
Apple’s MagSafe power adapter, the one designed to pop out safely if someone was to accidentally walk by and snag its cable, has precise methods by which it is to be removed from Mac portables. That’s right. The device that was supposedly designed for safe accidental disconnection actually needs to be accidentally disconnected in one of the four Apple sanctioned ways.
Please inform anyone who might accidently trip on your MagSafe cable of the proper removal procedures. Also take precautions to reduce cable strain on your MagSafe power adapter.
