what is the purpose of the wings placed on the corners of the charger?

This charger is very heavy - I am trying to find a solution for keeping the charger connected to the power strip on top of my desk. Because of its weight, the charger keeps disconnecting itself from the power supply.

In trying to find a solution, I discovered these "wings" on the charger; what is it purpose?
