If you have the idea to make an extension cord, then it is important that you first take the time to consider the safety hazards if the cord is not built correctly. Since power will be moving through the wires of the cord, safety is the top priority in order to avoid injury or fire.
Usually, the reason a person would want to make an extension cord is because there is a specific type of product that they are looking for and they are having a hard time finding what they need. Here at Milspec Direct, we have many different options for you to choose from, so that you can easily find the right cord for your project.
