Installing a Male Slide on Plug

Male and female slide on plugs are often used by professional Christmas installers. Slide on plugs allow you to custom make your own extension cords as well as custom cut perimeter light line for cleaner and more professional results. Slide on plugs are available in Spt-1 and Spt-2. If the cord you are using is SPT-1, then you'll want to make sure the plugs are also SPT-1.

Follow the instructions below when installing a male plug. Female plugs are installed in the exact same manner.
