How do I hook up a wall outlet to a 2 wire extension cord? My cord broke and I want to put a regular 110 outlet on it.
If your extension cord breaks, they make replacement ends for them. I'd only do this with a high priced outdoor extension cord, the cheaper cords should just be replaced completely.
NOTE: If the cord is going to be used outdoors; or in other damp or wet locations, use a weatherproof box, clamp, and in-use cover.
Testing and use
NOTE: This procedure should be followed each time the cord is used, to insure the GFCI receptacle is functioning properly.
Or, simply buy a new cord end for a dollar or two.
