Interior receptacles behind curtains

OK, I finally got fed up with having to pull the window curtain back to plug in the TV and VCR unit. The plugs stuck out, pushing the curtain out a little and were just plain a pain. I went to Lowe's and picked up one of those multi-outlet surge protector strips for use with cable TV units. I specifically looked for one with a high # of joules for protection and it had to have a right angle plug so that the cord would hug the wall. It now runs down and exits out the side and bottom of the curtain without pushing the curtain out at all. The unit is hidden behind the TV which sits on top of the VCR when not traveling. The curtain does not have to be pulled back to plug in although the 12 v. power button to the TV antenna has to be pushed in by hand. That is an easy reach over and touch solution.

Now, all I need to do is find a right angled connector for the TV antenna so that the cord is not sticking out like the electrical plug did. Any ideas?

I bought a 90 degree plug at Radio Shack a couple of years ago for our Argosy, for the same reason.
Here is what I used:
