Early TV days, so the repairman could take the back off and plug in the 
"cheater cord" to make the set work.  The AC cord on the set was 
fastened to the back and came off when the back was removed.  The 
cheater cord was carried with the repairman and used to power the set, 
cheating the AC input.
