    Odd request but these little steel L brackets for a 1/4" plug. I have a record player from the 50's with one of these on the back too. Such a simple piece of hardware but I'm not really finding much searching ebay.
    They come in handy since most of the time the ext speaker jacks on tweed amps are hard to reach. I'd like to throw one on all my tweed clones. They look kinda cool too.

    I've never seen these in a ready-made format, but any piece of angled bracket from a hardware store and a 3/8" drill bit would get it done quickly.

    I put a speaker out jack on a small combo amp with a switching jack socket to shut off the main speaker when plugged in.... so I could use the same ohm rated bin..

    I just folded some sheet metal and drilled a hole for the mounting plate...
