Flexible Socket is a wall socket with unique usability. It is safe as there is no exposed socket contact when it is not being used. FS can spring out by push the center, and there are 2 positions for use. When just for 1 or 2 plugs you can pull it to the middle of it and it can keep this position by 3 small steel balls. When the need became more and the plugs of the electric equipments cannot get the wall socket, you can pull it all and take it to the opportune position.
