Cord latch

Locking extension cords are nice until someone who doesn't know there's a lock rips a prong out trying to unplug it.  I just use a strain relief knot, but that would definitely drag around corners better.  I think the better solution is cordless though.

 

For those of you worried about drilling into the cord, if there's anything but rubber where you drill there are bigger problems with the cord, and the screw looks like plastic so everything gets reinsulated anyway.

That's why no ones aloud to touch my extension cord!!! Most of mine are non-locking so I do the knot.

Rack a tiers are awesome in industrial applications,around the house I wouldnt waste the dough.   I just tie them like everyone else has mentioned.

 

i also use velcro cable ties.
