Power Tool Cord Tip
Prevent Power cord From UnPlugging
That feeling intensifies further if your high up on a ladder or on your back in a hard to get to crawl space.
My first day working on a job site I learned a neat power tool cord trick to keep cords plugged in and to lessen the strain on the tool plugs and extension cord boots.
Tie them in a knot:
Hold both cord ends together in one hand and tie a loose knot. After making the knot plug in the connectors.
The beauty of using this method is there is never any strain or stress on the plug ends. I even raise and lower my power tools from ladders by the cords using this connection.

Stay plugged in!
