Make the whole box twice as tall and wide enough to recess the connectors, then put your band's logo on the front. Turn it into a barricade!  :)

What might work/fit is this:

or

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.

After much searching, this seems like the best option, so thanks for the links.

Email response from Neutrik yesterday, confirming the offer no solution for right angle PowerCON.

Update on how this turned out.
After coming up short trying to find equivalent parts in the US, I decided to see if an IEC socket could fit into a D-size panel.
With a small amount of filing, it can fit.
It's not pretty, but it works perfectly for what I need.

The socket is wedged in there extremely tight and I epoxied on the back side.
If I ever need to take it out, I'll likely have to drill it out.  But this is all a custom built unit, so not a problem.
