Great way to keep your cord ends dry
on December 4, 2010
This is a great product if you need to use extension cords outside for any kind of extended use. I live in Indiana and have a heated water dish for my dog; this is the perfect solution to let me get the dish closer to the dog house since the cord won't reach the house. We've had hard rains (over an inch in just a couple hours) and snow (over three inches on the ground right now) already this fall and every time I've popped this open to check it's been bone dry inside.
The color is nice; no chance this is going to blend in with the grass and someday get hit by a lawn mower.
It's not totally clear from the pictures, but there is a slider inside that you can use to secure the two plugs so there's less chance of them pulling apart. A nice added feature I wasn't expecting.
The seals at the ends seem to fit very tightly around both cords (both are 16/2 with ground) and the latching system is very secure, so short of being punctured or cut by something, I think this will do its job for years to come. I'm very happy with this purchase and will probably be ordering more for stringing Christmas lights.
