All the man really did was to carry the already over-marketed concept of patch and reducer cords a step further.

These items are all listed and sold with small print instructions and disclaimers that nobody ever reads..

They are testimony to the 'Lip Service' the NRTL's give to safety.

It makes me appreciate the NEC even more now. As someone once said "Almost anyone can get it to work" However, is it safe?
