now that you have your short cords to go from the lose outlet to the floor, how about "tinning" the blades of the plug with solder it would add a bit of thickness for a tighter fit.

I'm not thinking about using these right-angle short cords in loose outlets. They'll clean up the straight plug sticking out of the wall and the resultant loop of cable trying to pull it out.

I was addressing the OPs complaint  "Running 12/3 SO cord for all my power extensions and a few places I work have fairly worn outlets and the plugs at times almost want to fall out.
