easier socket

For the people who has the poor lumbar spine, especially the old people. Squatting down to plug in and pull out the plug is a thorny thing, which is even likely to cause physical illness, such as lumbar disc herniation. Because people often locate the current fixed sockets in a low position and the holes of the sockets are parallel to the floor, it is not easy to plug in, whilst it is not conducive to people's operations. The design aims to solve this problem, it can avoid people squatting down to plug in through remodifying the existing fixed socket. Thus it can not only simplify people's lives, but also focus on the vulnerable groups.
