I've driven off with cars that have battery tenders installed and plugs not visible.  Bad scene.

Here is what I did for my EV (see the second picture) so I couldn't ignore the plug:

The lock is to prevent arching when you disconnect

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.
