Made my racks look alot nicer...with 3 foot IEC Cable
« on: January 02, 2006, 02:00:51 pm »

Got rid of all the extra IEC length and daved alot of money and time by not having to buy 3 prong plugs and chop the stock IEC's.  Just thought I would share the advice!

Best of luck in 2006

By the way...
I have a bunch of these I bought for a job I am getting rid of them for $3.70 each I will discount if you buy a few.  Plus the cost of shipping

I get them from Anixter.com, for under $3.00.  Find your part numbers at http://www.volexpowercords.com/power_cords/powercord2.cgi?ca tagory=3_conductor_plastic_detachable&area=other

I did something similar. I made my own. Took regular 6 foot cords, chopped them in half (or to whatever length I needed) and respliced them together with some butt-splices and heat shrink tubing. Looks completely professional, and regular IEC cables are about free so this is a lot cheaper than buying pre-made ones. Now there is no slack in any of the racks; some of the power cables are only 8" long!

That's a lot of work to save $2.50 per cable.
