Try This Trick

I’m always running extension cords from my garage out to my yard. To avoid the hassle of the cord getting unplugged or damaging the plug’s prongs, I tie a loose loop in the cord and hang it on a heavy-duty screw hook installed right next to the outlet. The hook keeps the plug connected in case I pull a little too hard on the cord. — Isaac Hanvey
