Introduction: FIX Your Extension Cord BETTER THAN NEW
If you ever damage or cut your extension cord, rather than throwing it away or buying expensive components to fix the extension cord, It’s just as easy to use off-the-shelf components to simply fix it. Enjoy!! :)

Step 1: Modification to BX Cable Connector
Cut off the end of a BX connector and put your wire in to it. Then glue it on to the wire with Epoxy Glue Make sure you have plenty of wire to wire the outlet. Put the connector in to the box and secure it with the nut.
Step 2: Wire the Outlet
Strip a section of the wire so it can connect to the ground. Now let's wire the outlet, Black wire goes with the gold screw and the white wire goes with the sliver screw.
Step 3: Finished
Now screw in the outlet and the front plate, and now your done! In my opinion this is an upgrade to the normal cord.
