Swiveling Plunge-Table AC Adapter

      Disclosed is an AC adapter which has the swiveling plunge-table
to enable it to plug into any type of outlet located on the wall or
floor by rotating plunge-table.

      Fig. 1 shows that three plunges are put in, and Fig. 2 shows
that the three plunges are put out.  A swiveling plunge-table (1) is
stored by pushing and sliding a slide knob (9) along the guide rail
(10).  Fig. 3 shows that a power lines and frame ground line are not
connected.  Fig. 4 shows that they are contacted (3)(6), (4)(7),
(5)(8).  Figs. 5, 6, 7 show a slide knob latch mechanism and a
rotation mechanism of the swiveling plunge-table.  A plate spring
(12) supports  the slide knob and slides the round of the rotation
drum.

      Fig. 8 shows that the plunge table contacts the housing of the
AC adapter.  Fig. 9 shows the center position of the plunge-table.
It is the center of the circle which is defined by (16) and (17).
This position minimizes the table size of the swiveling plunge-table.

The subject invention is applied to all other types of AC outlets
all over the world.
