Introduction: How to Fix a Broken Electrical Cord / Wire

A how-to video on how to fix broken electrical wires found on lamps, vacuums, extension cords, etc. I show how to fix a 2 prong and a 3 prong (with a ground) plug.

If you have any questions / comments, feel free to write below!

Please don't use the cheaper cord caps as used in the first example in this video. Buy one that has pressure connection terminals and a saddle that secures around the cable. Never do what was shown in example two. A splice like this is neither safe or approved. Two prong cord caps are available to fix this problem.

Extremely helpful! I wanted to cry when my dog chewed up my Dyson cord!

I tried the 2 prong way, but it didn't work out. Why?
