Ran across these plugs on a Taiwanese website. The swivel on the plug seems like a good idea especailly when you're plugging a lamp into an outlet behind a bureau.

Any reason why nobody sells them here? Look at TC-005 and TC-009. I have one of these at home. Construction seems solid. Not UL listed, however.

Interesting concept. Come to think of it, I've seen plenty of 3-wire grounding right-angle caps in America, but does anyone make a non-grounding right-angle version?

I don't know who makes it, but I've seen similar devices in the US. I'll do a little researcg and see if I can find the manufacture.
