Top Customer Reviews
1. The plug is designed for use with flat cords like the on on my heater.
2. The wires connect securely to the plug and there is a strain relief in the plug design that helps to prevent the cord from being pulled out of the plug. Yes, everyone knows you are NOT supposed to unplug a cord by pulling on the cord, but it happens!
3. The design of the plug is such that it makes it easy to grab and pull out of the socket!!
All in all, a very good product that I will certainly use again if i have a need for it. I would highly recommend it if you have need for a 15Amp plug for a flat cable that only has two wires!!
In part because of the large size and good design it is very easy to install an electrical cord, and your installation will be secure if you do it well--that is, it will not pull apart if someone pulls the cord instead of the plug, and it should be impossible to short-circuit. The plug is a single unit--there are no parts to disassemble or get lost.
Some smaller replacement plugs may be more "attractive", but generally the process of installing a cord in them is more difficult and less secure.
With normal lamp cord:
>> Separate about 1 1/2" of cord
>> Strip the last 3/4" of plastic off of each cord. A toenail clipper, carefully used, is a handy wire stripper. If you don't have a stripping tool, then carefully cut through the plastic (only) with a razor or sharp knife, and pull off the plastic. DO NOT expose more than 3/4" of bare wire.
>> Twist the exposed strands of bare wire TIGHTLY, so that the many strands become a mini-cable.
>> Identify the neutral wire. It has a white stripe on the insulation, or the insulation is white, or the insulation is ribbed. The neutral wire should be attached to the wider prong.
>> Wrap the stripped portion of the wires around the screw-posts in the direction the screws tighten (clockwise). This will be on-the-top-and-around on the right screw, and on-the-bottom-and-around on the left screw. You may need a small screwdriver etc. to "tuck in the end of the wire around the screw-posts.
>> Tighten the screws good and tight. All of the bare wire should be around the screw-posts, but it won't hurt if a few strands are not perfectly tucked in at the ends.
>> Fit the remaining separated but unstripped wire into channels on the top side of the plug (the side on top in the illustration, with the screw).
>> Close the plug and tighten the silver screw.
If you live in a household in which someone frequently rips plugs out of the wall by pulling the wire, then an generous dollop of household goop Amazing Goop All-Purpose Household Goop, 3.7-Ounce Tube #130012 before you screw the plug closed will provide an extra level of safety.
The contacts in wall sockets, particularly in kitchens, bathrooms, and outdoors, can become stiff for various reasons. Silicon grease Permatex 22058 Dielectric Tune-up Grease - 3 oz. can restore "firm but smooth" operation (when pushing-in and pulling-out plugs), improve the the electrical contact, and protect the the contacts from further corrosion. To lubricate the sockets, slather silicon grease on the tines of a plug, and plug it in and out several times.
If you are considering buying the plug to replace cat-chewed (dog-chewed, parrot-chewed, rabbit-chewed etc.) wiring, you should know that Household Goop can do an excellent job of repairing moderately damaged wires, much better than electrical tape. And Goop comes in a black version (Shoe Goo) which is invisible on black plastic cords. Don't leave a slightly or moderately damaged cord in use "until you can get around to" replacing it. Fix it immediately with Goop, replace it later, if necessary.
Note that this is a "polarized" plug. That means that one of the prongs is larger than the other, (as unfortunately is nearly every household plug these days). That means you'll probably try to plug it in "the wrong way" half the time. The solution is to mark the "up" side of the plug (and of the plugs of other appliances which you frequent plug in and unplug). The easiest method I've found is to use a small patch of blue masking tape. The tape will stay in place virtually forever without curling up or falling off; can easily be removed if you want without leaving a gummy residue or damaging the surface; and the color is bright enough to easily see.
