60601-1 clause 8.11.3.6 Test Clarification

#1
Hello,

I have trouble understanding the Cord Guards test of clause 8.11.3.6, specifically the sentence 'ME Equipment having a cord guard or opening is so placed that the axis of the cord guard, where the cord leaves it, projects at an angle of 45° when the cord is free from stress.'
I understand each part, but when the run on sentence is put together I just can't seem to imagine what's it supposed to tell me.

If someone could provide a sketch or decribe it better, please share your wisdom.
Thanks.
