@Steve no the stones are one-sided and professionally placed. Not possible.

Thank you @Zaid that was also my reasoning. I figured that people who work with cars have experienced this more than the average DIY person.

@Mary all car power adapters are basically identical so you can use any, even if the manual says different. Get one from Amazon, spend an least $15 to avoid cheap Chinese stuff.

comment How can I elegantly secure a USB charging cable to the dashboard?
The easiest way was actually down as you indicate but continue all the way to the floor, then along the door threshold and finally across in front of the driver's seat. Much simpler than my original idea, and completely invisible. Most of the cable is tucked between plastic and carpeting. Thanks!!

Solved: I took the plug apart and found that it was, indeed, a cheap piece of .... I removed the hard metal center nub and replaced it with a short soft spring. Now it works well enough. Seeing how simple electronics it contains made me think about avoiding the plug&socket by embedding it directly in the console, but that's a project for another day.
