Panasonic Reeler Outlet hangs from the ceiling. Pull down and connect equipment at time of use, then raise it again so it does not get in the way. The current product is mainly for factories, and external appearance has stayed the same. But from a functional / safety standpoint, it prevents cords on the ground and reduces risk of tripping, making it suitable for home use and in assisted living facilities. Now we’ve revamped its look to suit appliances people commonly use. It’s as slim as possible without altering the contents. Smooth modeling features only free-form surfaces. User-friendly, fits easily in the hand, designed for safety even when installed overhead.
