    Tip: Locking plug

    If you are tired of cords separating or tying ends up in knots, try this locking cord end.

    Re: Tip: Locking plug

    There is a very simple trick to prevent cords from unplugging. You simply tie a knot between the Appliance cord and the extension cord before you plug them together. It is possible for them to separate but it almost never happens when you do this.

    Yep. However, when you're climbing around on ladders and staging, they always hang up when you don't want em to. You know when you go around the corner of that rv, that knot will get stuck in the tires

    Just last summer the ole knot between the extenson cord got hung up on the rung of the step ladder as I was coming down. Part of it was on the step and in my haste I stepped on it and fell off the ladder. Fortunately it was only a few steps. I did save the the polisher though. I was like the drunk ppl in the videos where they fall and hold their beer up as to not waste any...yeah...I was happy like that!

    Really? I'm hoping that was in jest, otherwise 4 posts in to your post count and you chime in to a thread just to say "You're dumb, your name is dumb, and your comical picture is dumb."?

    Sorry, maybe it's early and I missed something, just struck me as really unnecessary.
