Biting Socket / socket

Biting Socket

People often find that the socket is more and more loose with
the time going, so the plug is prone to fall off the wall. How to
solve this problem? Can we make the socket fix the plug? The
design of this socket aims to solve this problem. There is a
button at the top of the socket, when the plug is loose, people
can press the button, then the plug can be locked in the socket.
