Laptop "plug" upgrade/replacement question.? Answered

I have an Asus K53SV Laptop and the power jack is busted, like the internal connections are loose.  I'm looking to upgrade it to a panel-mount one that's screwed into the case instead mounted to the mother-board.

How do I find out which kind to order online?  It's not like I can go to the barrel-jack store with my laptop brick and see which one fits.  Is there a standard sizing scheme or something?  I couldn't find one.

Also, is there a MagSafe like system for this?  I'd love to have it come apart if someone trips over the cord (again... that's why it's broken now... >.<)
