I was thinking of doing that. Radio Shack's connector series has a loose spec from what I read on Wikipedia.
Do you have part numbers from mouser and digikey? That would be helpful.

If you don't mind cutting the cord and splicing a whole new connector on there then go to Digikey or Mouser. They have the proper sized barrel connector in both straight and right angle configurations.
I made my own 12 volt adapter and bought a cord from Digikey (Mouser has the same ones, too) that had a molded, right angle connector on the end. Works fine, no loose connections.
