You know how, when you're outside trying to do something and you've attached an extension cord to get electricity to where you're doing it, the extension cord has a habit of disconnecting when you pull on the junction of it and the appliance's cord?

Never again if you've got one of these nifty items.

From the website:

    This unique device saves you time and aggravation by preventing accidental uncoupling of electrical cords.

    Simply snap the Protect-A-Cord around connected area and plugs stay put.

    Allows your cord connection to pass easily through sawhorses, weeds, hedges, ladders, etc.

    Can be stored at end of the power tool or extension cord when not in use.

Made of durable plastic.

7.5" long.

$4.95 here.

But perhaps mademoiselle needs a secure electrical connection that can withstand the elements.

No problema.

The Watertight Cord Connector (below) is just your ticket.


It connects two extension cords by clamping them firmly together within a watertight gasket.

However — as noted on the website, the connection, once made, cannot be easily undone.

Some connections are like that.


Therefore the Watertight Cord Connector would be most useful not with an appliance or tool but, rather, two extension cords.

This device costs $3.95 here.


And that, friends, completes today's exploration of the cord connection space.

I am an independent Ace Hardware dealer and would like tostock this item. Would you be interested and working directly with me or is there a mfg. I should go to?

You know what works great for keeping extension cords together outside? Duct tape. Yes. And it removes warts. From people, not extension cords.
