Unfortunately, I kicked the plug out of the UPS. I don't see any way (other
than massive duct taping) to anchor the plug there.

When my best friend (a videographer specializing in figure skating; his wife
was my first skating coach) and I are setting up for a skating competition,
if the power is plugged in anywhere that there's a realistic possibility of
it being accidentally knocked out, we (1) anchor the extension cord to a
fixed object to prevent it from being pulled out, and (2) duct-tape the plug
to the socket.
