If you're re-fitting the power cord on a Beastie 610
or a T-3 because of hard-to-find stock AC connectors,
try the chassis mount plug and cable mounted jack such
as those used on portable generators. 

A more expensive version is at your marine supply
store, used for a boat's shore cables at the dock.
Better grade of metal (anti-corrosion) and the line
cable's outer housing is waterproof.

There's a four blade twist lock that carries 30A,
takes wire size up to 8 ga, and whose chassis mount is
not much bigger than stock. Ream out the chassis hole
and you're all set, safety over "originality." 

The judges at the show will understand.
