A Strageable Structure for Concent-Plug Grounding Pole

   Disclosed is a concent plug design having retractable
grounding pole.

   Normally, a concent plug has a fixed grounding pole
(earthing-contact) with two electrode pins.  In case a socket-outlet
is the type of only for two electrode pins which has no grounding
hole, the concent plug is disable to be connected into the
socket-outlet due to the grounding pole conflicts onto the socket
surface.

   Figures show the example of this structure.  The grounding
pole has the fulcrum (1) into the plug body.  And the body has a
strage hole (2) between two electrode pins, for the straged
grounding pole.  When the grounding pole is straged, use the
earthing bracket (3) with ground wire (4) to earth from another
grounding facility.

   This devise comes from aiming flexible AC 100V plugging
mechanism, but all of "Two-pole socket-outlet and plug with
earthing-contact" stated on IEC (International Electrotechnical
Commission) 83 are applicable.
