The Speakon and Powercon have 2 different keyways so cannot be cross connected. The Speakon is 12 and 6 oclock while the Powercon is 12 and 9 oclock.
The right angled adapter looks like it might work with the Powercon connector body as it is a replacement for to the shell and not the connector sleeve itself.

Understood, I would be using both the Speakon D-panel and Speakon cable end for my 'custom' job.  Effectively just swapping the panel and connector on my pedal board and snake, just to make it right angle.

How much current do you want or need?  Would a four pin XLR work for you?  There are not many four pin XLR applications, so cross-connection problems should be minimal.

Why are drunk girls all over your stage, unless the singer is inviting them (and somebody needs to explain the legal liability to which he's subjecting himself, the band and venue).

I find increasing desire for more distance between drunks and myself, my crew and our gear.

I don't think XLRs are rated , nor should they be used, for 120 volt applications.

I am the singer.  I don't invite any of them.  I do my best to keep them off.
But with a guitar in my hand and standing in front of a Mic stand, it's impossible for me to get them off during a song.

This behavior is NOT discouraged by the bars/clubs.  Most like when the crowd gets involved because it makes the room seem like more fun.
The bouncers and staff don't do sh*t to prevent it.  But when they do, it's generally after girls have already jumped up on the stage (stepping on or over my pedal board)....so damage is already done.
This is the environment I am in and I accept it.  I'm just trying to drunk proof my gear as much as I can.

What might work/fit is this:
https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/compact-power-connectors/0449275/
https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/compact-power-connectors/0449269/

or

https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/compact-power-connectors/0488393/
https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/compact-power-connectors/0489510/

These are rated @ 3A/250V so fine for your application. The sockets are solder tagged and the 1st plug is screw termination and the second solder tagged.

Note that there are variants of the second connector that are NOT suitable for mains as the connector shell can be easily unscrewed (although it was previously used for mains (the SYNTHI AKS was a user) but now for inaccessible (i.e. internal to a device) use only). Weller TCP magnastat irons use the same connector.  But these are not right angle so no real problem.

Solid suggestion!  Thank you.
