    how to coil an extension cord

    seems like we all roll/coil up are extension cords one way or another, but this way seems to help prevent problems that you will encounter later...

    I roll mine up like this.



    There's a name for it, but I don't remember. It all comes loose quikly without any tangles and is quik to tie back up.

    Re: how to coil an extension cord

    I have a friend who is a camera operator for a local TV news department showed me the over/under technique years ago. The cords/cables always lay flat and never tangle. With just a few minutes practice, it's really easy to do.

    One of Mike Phillips pet peeves is the rolling of the cords in the garage.

    Re: how to coil an extension cord

    We called it a daisy chain in the Marines.

    Its the way we rolled up climbing/repel ropes.
