Microwave coming unplugged

The plug for our microwave is above the residential refrigerator behind some thin wood paneling. It has come unplugged during traveling several times now, and is not easy to reach behind the paneling. Are there clips that hold the plug in the socket to prevent this?

My household deep freeze came with a retaining clip. Even though I don't actually use it, you can see how simple it is. Take the center screw out of the outlet center plate place the clip and screw into the faceplate. To take the picture, the clip is upside down. It should be underneath holding up the plug.

If you can't make one, perhaps you can search appliance repair parts websites and find one. (My freezer is a Frigidair.)

I like that device. There is no center screw on a GFI outlet A little twist of the blades with a pair of pliers will work also.
