If you don't want to wreck anything, just get matching plugs.
So, just to follow up on this and ask a possibly silly question (I'm a chemist, not an EE), could I simply buy an extension like this and wire it onto the TC420, then use it inline between the power supply and light without actually having to mod the light at all? Seems pretty simple, but I have found that when it seems this straight forward it is because I am doing it wrong.
