Came up with a possibility for whom ever had said about using a 240V socket
for connecting 12V items.

Why not get some British power sockets and plugs. You shouldn't have
anything around to plugin except your 12V stuff.

Now I realize I have no idea on the availability of those plugs and sockets
in North America, but maybe someone has an idea.

Just my thoughts.

I think someone should develop a good heavy duty banana plug for that
purpose. There's already a male that accepts 12 GA wire, but I have never
seen a wall mount heavy-duty female.

 Any electrical supply should have banana plug female panel mounts in a red
and black pair. They would also take wrap on wire or spade connectors.

I was thinking of a single plug and receptacle, more like a large audio
plug. Polarized, clean, neat, simple, reliable. I don't know if there are
any that can handle the low volts and high amps of a 12v system.
