In the photo, there is a single wall outlet designed for 2 cords to be plugged in.

Using 4 plug adapters and not-so-smart ingenuity, this homeowner managed to plug in 9 extension cords and an AC adapter… a total of 10 cords.

Extension cords are a source of both electrical shock and electrical fires… Do you think?

Count on the common sense inspectors at Pacific Coast Inspections to report when enough is enough.
