Step 1: You Will Need
- Double European outlet
- 2 plugs
- 2 big nails
- some heat shrink tube
Step 2: Prepare the Plugs
We also cleaned them up a little bit.
Step 3: Prepare the Nails
Next we shoved some heat shrink tubing over the nails. (The white tubing makes it look like electrical wire)
When you heat up the tubing, it will shrink tight over the nail. We used a lighter to heat up the tubing, but a hair dryer works even better.
Step 4: Make the Plug-pegs
Put the nail in the strain release of the plug. Make sure that the nail can't and won't be able to reach one of the legs from the plug. We don't want anyone to be electrocuted when someone accidentally puts one of the plug-pegs in a real, live, outlet!
Tighten the strain release.
Close the plug.
Step 5: Finishing Up
Now plug in the plugs and you are finished.
If you have heavy things to hang on the pegs or the outlet doesn't hold the plugs in tight, you can glue the plugs in place.
We really liked our result. We hope you do to.
