The suspending device includes a contacting pressing piece and a suspending switch. One end of the contacting pressing piece is embedded within the housing, and another end of which is formed with a cambered contacting plate. A pushing key is projected upwards from the center of the plate. An opening is located on the lower end of the housing to accommodate the suspending switch.
