Extension Cords

Don't trust that extension cord thats been baking in your attic for the last three years when you install your Christmas lights this upcoming Holiday season. The last thing you need is exposed wiring or a short to put put a kink in your lighting project.

Don't forget an extension cord to complete your Christmas lighting display. You have more choices than just the brown cord at your local hardware store.

For wintry Northern climates, choose white cords to blend in with snow and ice. Also consider this cord if you have a lighter color home or siding.

Decorating in the Texas, Florida or another Southern state where Christmas is green and the only icicles you see hanging are definitely the mini-light kind? Consider purchasing a green extension cord in either medium or heavy duty weight. The darker color of the cord will blend with leaves, shrubbery and dark siding.

Be sure to pay close attention to the maximum current rating of the cord and do not exceed the maximum amperage.

Do not daisy-chain extension cords. In other words, do not run them in series. Be sure to order a cord long enough for your project.
