Homemade extension cord plug protection for a wet environment.
My lawn sprinkler pump sits under our dock at the lake, and is in a very wet location. To keep the extension cords plug-in connection dry, I re-purposed one of those plastic lunch meat containers to make a ‘dry box’ of sorts. I use the kind with a red top, they seem to be stiffer and are also easier to see on the ground.
I start by drilling two holes, each the size of the extension cord, in each end of the container. Then, taking a utility knife, cut up from the holes and through the top lip of the container. I’m then able to spread the plastic apart enough to insert the plugs inside the container and put the top back on. No more worries about wetness. It’s kept the cord connections dry all summer long and we’ve had a very wet season, plus it’s free!
