I have a question. There have been a few people re-locate here from Europe and have bought appliances with them that have a Schuko plug on them. Now, they look like they would slot straight into a socket like that, even with the earth contact at 12 o'clock. Am I missing something?.

well, do you think the spring is strong enough to keep the pin out when a french plug is inserted? or will it just contact the ground jack of the plug in "pushed in" position? i somehow can't imagine this to work so safely...
does the french plug fit here at all? I thaught it doesnt have the notches where the 2 ground springs are?
by the way, many new schuko plugs of Appliances and PC cables (how do you call that 3 pole jack at a PC power supply in english?) nowadays have the grounding jack to fit both classical schuko and french outlets.
