Properly Storing an Extension Cord

By Christine27360

When rolling up an extension cord, first stretch out the cord completely. Then, take the plug-in end and walk it back to the other plug in end. So now the cord is in half. Then start at the plug-in end and pull the rest of the cord to you in a circle... When you get to the "loop" at the end, wrap it two times around the middle of the circle and slip the "loop" part through the hole at the top of the circle. You can then hang the extension cord from this loop!

My dad drilled this into my head for years. Always walk the female plug back to the male plug and ensure the cord is unplugged before you start rolling. I only had to disregard that warning once to never forget again, lol.
