Mobile Plug / socket

Mobile Plug
Mobile Plug

The location of a conventional socket is fixed since a house was built. When the location is too low, it is less convenient to use for the elderly people or those with knee-waist malaise. A toddler might be in danger due to the electric shock caused by inserting any foreign body into the socket. From the aspect of interior furnishings, some furniture may block sockets. The MOBILE PLUG combines an automatic cable reel with a high-performance suction cup. The number of sockets can be increased according to usage requirements. The socket location can be changed via the high-performance suction cup so as to reduce the danger of toddler accidents.
