Thank you

Is it me your looking for
No it is a poor attempt at humour, looking for the picture the OP said he provided or am I reading his post wrong

Is there a fixed 3 prong plug thingy that fits into that block?
You might be able to slot an ordinary, maybe slightly larger-sized chocblock onto it, if the orientation isn't critical. Or maybe adapt something like this:
