Plug safety

April 30th, 2005

Whenever I throw out a dead or defective electrical item I normally scavenge a few parts off of it - usually the cable and the plug. However, I never leave the cable with a plug attached to it with a free end with the wires showing - this in an invite for it to be plugged in accidentally and cause injury or even death. I separate the plug from the cable completely, thus making both safe.

I'm I'm throwing away an electrical item that I think it dangerous I always either remove the plug or damage the plug so that it cannot be plugged in by someone else easily. Similarly, if I have a damaged plug I will render it unusable by bending the prongs with pliers.
