    I was just wondering if anyone had thought of or come up with a solution for the case where a 14-50 plug has been set up in the parking of a condo for the Model S. The problem would arise if you didn't want to completely unplug the Tesla mobile connector and take it with you every time you drove away. This would leave the mobile connector easily accessible for either unauthorized use or theft. Has anyone put in (or know of) any kind of lockable box that could fit over the 14-50 plug, maybe with a door or something, that, when locked with the fat circuitry part of the mobile connector, could secure it for theft? or maybe a wall mounted box of some kind for the nozzle end of the connector to be locked away?

    I realize that putting in a HPWC could be a solution (at least for theft) but it does come with additional costs and does not protect from unauthorized use.
