About This Class

An improperly coiled extension cord becomes a tangled mess.  Daisy-chaining will keep a cord from tangling but doesn't store neatly.  There are various storage solutions avaible to buy however it only takes a minute to properly coil an extencion cord for easy storage and tangle-free deployment.

This class is a basic lesson geared for those who have problems with tangling extension cords.

I see now; I been doin wrong for years, daily. Oops.
As a new homeowner, I've taken on many home projects such as home improvements and yard work. My projects usually require extension cords; I appreciate knowing the best way to store them. Thank you.
