By now we all know the trick to hold the CCS plug up because of the cord weight on EA CCS chargers... but I just had an idea... a simple prop stick.... Heck make it from PVC pipe.... a cross bar or Y at the top, a rubber foot like a chair leg on the bottom.... wedge it under the plug so you can walk away and fiddle with the screen. What, about 30" high? I don't have my Bolt anymore so I can't test.... ya'll try this and let me know! If you want to be really creative, you can put a threaded joint in the middle so you can take it apart (less storage space).

This is a darn good idea...

Maybe a telescoping trekking pole would work. Some of the ones I've seen have a T-bar handle on them. Also you can put a cane's rubber end the trekking pole. A PVC would work too, as suggested, but you'd have to measure it out. Or a camera tri-pod should work, but harder to setup possibly.

I'm probably going to hit up an EA charger later on this summer, so I'll have to try the trekking pole. Back plan is ... have my wife hold it. Ha ha. That's a fail safe scenario.

I wonder how extensive this issue is...
I've heard about it several times.
I've only QC'd twice, both times at the same EA charger and didn't have an issue.
But no idea if that was a fluke, my car, that particular EA charger/cable???
