Angry Apple AC adapters were designed poorly; any aftermarket alternatives?

Sorry, but it's true.

Who at Apple thought it made sense to make a heavy AC adapter box that HANGS FROM THE WALL? It's like hanging a brick from a suction cup--it will inevitably fall off.

Mine constantly falls out, especially when I go somewhere where the outlet has relatively wide socket holes.

And don't get me started about how the Magsafe 2 always falls out (or how the Magsafe 1 had fraying issues that provoked a lawsuit...or how the secong Magsafe 1 constantly broke.

Is there a decent aftermarket alternative?
