Intro: Making a Spike Buster or Extension Cord Form Scratch
In this post i will show you how to make a Spike Buster or Extension Cord from scratch. First let see the parts list
Step 1: Parts List
- 3 * Female Wall Mount Socket
- 1 * Male Socket
- 1 * Switch
- 1 * Plastic Container
- 1 * Neon Bulb Indicator
- 2 * 5mtr 4mm Wire
First mark the location of the socket, switch & neon bulb on the container box & then cut out the holes for the same. Once the holes has been cut, cover them with the masking tape & paint it from the inside.
Step 3: Assembly
While the paint is drying connect the male plug to the wire ass seen in the first image of this step. I am using blue wire for the live & black wire for the neutral.
After connecting the wire to the plug, mount all the components on the container box & secure them with the screw.
Step 4: Connection
Now lets make the connections, first connect all the neutral pin of the socket together with the wires & also connect one of the leads of the neon bulb to the neutral pin.
Then connect all the live pin of the sockets together.
Once all the above connection have been made, connect the black wire of the main cable to the neutral pin of the socket & connect the blue wire to one of the pins of the switch. The other pin of the switch is connected to the live pin of the socket & the neon bulb lead which is free. You can refer the last image of this step or the video which is embedded in the first step.
Once all the connection have been made, connect the spike buster to the AC source & enjoy your extended power point.
