12/3 Gauge Cord:
At a 50ft length most tool manufactures recommend a 16 gauge cord... 14 would've been better, but if its worth doing - do it right... we went all the way to a 12 gauge cord so power will never be an issue for your car dryers, polishers, vacuums or other detailing tools. Using too small a cord for the run can result not only in lowered performance from the tool, but overheating and damage! With this beast of a cord that'll never be a concern.
Sometimes we forget to think about safety in our own garage... you feel comfortable there, but it only takes one accident to make things go horribly wrong. Since detailing is often a 'wet' activity either from the wash itself or water dripping and pooling in your garage after a wash it only makes sense to use a ground fault circuit interrupter. As a cord dedicated for detailing we made sure this is integrated into the head of the cord so you don't have to worry about it! If you use the Universal Pad Washer or any of the car dryers this is almost a necessity.
Taking the safety aspect further the terminations at the GFCI and female ends are both water tight. The cord wrapping is also water proof to make sure shorting out is never an issue. No splash, inadvertent spray from the hose, or spill will risk you or your tools safety!
The exterior insulation coating is over 2.5x thicker than that used on your average extension cord. That means its more abrasion resistant as well as cut resistant. If this cord gets run over, pinched, dragged, scraped, no matter what... it will hold up to the abuse!
Included Cord Keeper:
If you're like me you're very much an organization freak when it comes to your supplies. We include a heavy duty plastic cord keeper to wrap your cord up after each use. Pinch clips hold the male and female ends secure so theres no tangles when you're ready to use it again.
Guaranteed for Life:
Just as our 110% lifetime guarantee applies to tools, it applies here as well. We're confident this will be the last extension cord you ever buy. Engineered specifically with detailers in mind you'll find all kinds of uses for this extremely well made cord in your garage.
