The Cure for the Slippery HDMI?

OK, we have half the solution…

A few weeks back, I took a look at the Sony NEX-EA50H NXCam camcorder.  Alongside all of its many charms was a “feature” that several of my colleagues pointed out as a big minus:  The fragility and instability of the HDMI plug.  It’s true that in it’s native state HDMI connections don’t lock at all, and are really quite easy to disconnect at the wrong time.  But (other than gaffer’s tape) is there an answer to this issue?

Look at this webpage from the folks at QVS.  It features an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable with a screw on the HDMI side to lock it in place.  Wow, what a great idea!  But…

What is there to screw this screw into?  Anyone seen any examples of the female side of this HDMI equation?  Let me know in the comments!
