SafeBloc was different brnd and design from Keynector.
Keynector looked, as the name implies, a bit like 3 piano keys, You flipped back an isolator at the rear, pressed the bak of the key and the frony opened.

The Safebloc had the isolator contacts in the flip-up lid. Under the lid were 3 more conventional metal clips, These are much further back from the edge of the cover than keynectors contacts. Thus safer with less chance of a stray live strand sticking out.
The Safebloc does not look as nice, but it is safer and you don't have to strip back as much of the outer sheath.

I have examples of both.
