Energy saving socket

Traditional socket are required by the user to bend over to pull the plug, so the user has not much intention to pull the plug, and many elderly people who can not bend over or people who carry something by hands can not bend to pull the plug, this design allows users not to bend, but only need to use the foot to gently press, in order to turn off the power of the socket, to save energy.

In the dark, through fluorescent light above the socket switch, it reminds users to remember to turn off the lamp. And the socket is provided for different plugs.
