-Plugs will no longer block by obstacles; you can even choose your own direction.
The unfriendly location of wall sockets usually disturbs the user, especially
when there're furniture like shelfs and fridge in front of the socket. It
makes user difficult to plug in and also damages the wire easily.
To solve this problem, a plug in designedon the socket in the direction
parallel to the wall instead of the traditional one which is vertical to the
wall . In addition , a switch that can shift the socket for user to use in
either upward or down ward is designed.
