Bobby, as always, a GREAT idea!
-I'm also thinking of maybe using a drilled-out PVC end-cap glued into a very sort length of PVC tube, and then another end cap (not glued) on the outside with the male twist lock connector potted with silicone in this end cap.
My HLT has one of your 1" welding spuds installed to support the electric element but my kettle has a 1 1/2" TC welded in with a 1 1/2" TC to 1" NSP adapter so it can be easily and quickly removed if necessary.
