    Bought an XM skydock today like shown below. I plugged it into the right sided accessory outlet (one with the cover) and it wobbled all over because there's no support behind the outlet. I then moved it to the cigarette lighter side and same thing. Then when removing it the whole cigarette lighter came out with it and came apart! So I will work on replacing the lighter plug with one from autozone or something but is there a way to make it sturdier? I've never seen such a crappy flimsy lighter in a vehicle.

    IMHO. asking a power receptacle to support the weight of a device is asking to much of it and not the intended design criteria.
