Right Angled Fig8 Mains cable?

Hi All

Hopefully someone can help me with my problem

I want to fit my new flatsreen onto a wall but the mains connection is a standard fig8 cable. This means the TV will not sit properly at the angle I need for the best viewing position. Does any one know where I can get a right angled fig8 cable from? Thanks.

Think those are known as 'kettle plugs'.

Thanks Confab

The Yung-Li ones are exactly what I need.
I put YL-13L into Google and got this

I phoned them and they say they only deal with businesses but for this cable, and the down angle, they will sell me one as their distributors don't want to hold a European cable in the UK.

Thanks again.

Thats good news.

I've had a quick look at the drawings and it says 2.5A. Just make sure that this is a high enough rating for your flatscreen otherwise you'll risk the cable catching fire!
