[sdiy] chassis-mount screw terminal or alternative

They aren’t cheap, but I use 5-pin XLR for my PSU-to-rack wiring.  I like having the locking tab so it can’t get pulled out accidentally

For some of my live gear I use DIN connectors with a threaded fixing.
Those are Lumberg SV series. The connection stand even Bavarian taxi drivers on cobbelstone roads. ;-)

I'd be also interested in a lockable IEC C14 connection. Has anyone experience with those: https://www.mouser.de/new/schaffner/schaffnerIEC-lockcords/

PS: I understand Michaels objection against open contacts having the load, but in the case of the Lumbergs there is a very little chance that a short will happen.

Does anyone have a favorite chassis-mount connector? This would be to route power from a rack PSU to several 84hp synth cases. 

I was thinking maybe I'd like to try a screw terminal type.

In the past I've used gx12/3pin "aviation" connectors, but it would be nice to not have to build those cables anymore.

Or is getting behind the rack stand with a screwdriver an even worse alternative?
