Plug In Safely
Avoid household injuries and fires with these tips from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
- Don't overload. Check an extension cord's wattage rating. Don't plug in items that draw more than its max.
- Keep it loose. Never use cords that are coiled, looped, or covered by objects such as rugs. Use angled extension cords where furniture might push against the plug.
- Toss it out. Replace a cord when the plastic casing appears cracked or feels hot or soft when in use.
