Double Ended male extension cord.

Today a customer returned this to our store that they bought yesterday. I can't believe it slipped through the factory like this. and through our stocking of the shelves.

Fortunately this customer had the good sense to return the item with out making a fuss. I shutter at the liability had a person used this thing.Name:  20151218_163820[1].jpg

Well, Norm, I guess you can no longer tell people they don't make such a thing.

Well it's green so that must be one of those extension cords for the Christmas lights with female plugs.

God only knows. I suspect it could be the change in shift at the factory that caused the problem. I would love to be able to follow up on this with the factory. As former buyer I would've been on the phone within seconds of discovering this and making lots of waves. But I kind of doubt that our corporate buyers will do nothing other than send it back as a defect.

No, but it's good idea for those who are careful and safety minded. I'm glade we don't. I can only imagine the kind of Rube Goldberg stuff customers would come up with.

You could have an auction on eBay for that cord.
