I have never understood why the NEC _requires_ an EV charging plug be "locking".
It makes no sense.

If you drive away (or the vehicle somehow rolls, is towed, or moves away) the plug should simply come out.

As it is now, the locking plug won't give, so the cord breaks, or worse, the charger rips from the wall, damaging the fixed wiring.

The plug should not be _required_ to lock into place. It would be far safer to simply have the plug come out when the vehicle moves and the cord is strained.
