    Has anyone got any tips for me on the best way to get the end
    of the charging cable to seat and stay within the plastic
    holder housing? I find that it takes a lot of messing about with the thick cable to get just the right position for the assembly to stay together...

    Ditto. Then again, I installed mine before the little plastic thing was available.

    Twist the cable once. Then it will seat every time. If twisted the wrong way, it wants to pull out.

    I don't use it - I just coil the cable over the supplied holder and let it hang (like the yellow hose above).

    As to the original question, I’m with you. I got one of those official HPWC hangers to hang my UMC cable over, and it just doesn’t want to stay on that little tab in that slot. If it’s twisted just slightly, (which it almost always is) it wants to fall off. I just loop it over the top.
