How about powerCON from Neutrik?
Used widely in pro audio and lighting. Round hole, easy to use and it locks!

You could always use something like this and have a permanently connected mains lead.

Agree with Marra. If it does not have to be disconnected, why do it? powerCON is a great way to go is you have to do it.
