Keep Outside Extension Cords Dry

What you need:

  • Throw-away food storage container with a snap-on lid

How to:

  1. Cut 1- inch thick notches in opposite sides of a food storage container
  2. Slide the attached plugs into the container and snap on the lid
  3. That will keep the connections on the extension cords dry and prevent them from shorting out.

Warnings & Cautions:

Don't sit the container in standing water.

I buy snap on containers at the $$$ Store. This idea is perfect for outside Christmas lights or anytime you want to use extension cords in the yard.
