Hi this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, we would be talking about attaching the extension cord. When plugging in our extension cord, the first thing that we need to do is create a loop in the cord. Next, we need to stick the extension cord through the cord feed hole located on the back of the power sweeper. After that we are going to hook the extension cord around the cord holder. Then we are going to give the extension cord a tug to make sure it is securely hooked. Then lastly, we are going to plug the extension cord into the back of the tool. This is going to ensure that as I'm using my power sweeper if my cord gets caught on something, it is not going to unplug it. It is going to hold that plug in there securely. Now one thing to be aware of if you do not fully set the extension cord on the inlet plug, the plug could lead to over heating or cause a fire or possibly burning you or other people.
