Every once in a while we take our kids to Grandma's house to stay the night. But my parents don't have a TV, so we bring ours and that way we can have a break while the kids go crazy. I built an entertainment center at my house and it can be a pain to get the TV down and put it back up again. Too many cords to deal with. The most annoying one is the power cord because it does not disconnect at the back of the TV.
What I want to do is cut the cord and replace the connector so I can leave a power cord connected to my mount and keep another one handy that I can take to my parents house. I found a connector in an old laptop transformer brick. It took a little work and a big hammer but I got the connector out and I am ready to put it in my TV.
