    Question 9 months ago on Introduction

    On the two-prong fix. How important is it that you don't get wires mixed up? The cord was cut and there is no way to tell which is which.

    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.

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