Help me change the receptacle on an extension cord
I need a very short extension cord with just one receptacle, instead of the usual three. I have changed out the plugs on extension cords before, and I figured it would be similar, but I ended up with a part and no instructions. Can someone help?
When I open up the replacement receptacle, there are two screws, one gold and one silver. There's an arrow pointing to the silver side that says "strip" and an an arrow on the gold side that says "gage". The receptacle is 15A 125V and rated for light duty, as is the extension cord.
The extension cord is a simple 2-prong cord. I cut it, and both wires are copper-colored.
I'm trying to figure out which side of the cord goes into which side of the receptacle. Ribbed side to ???
