Have plenty of room to plug in tools, chargers, lights, and everything else! The outlet rail featured in this How-To is a 4 foot power strip with 12 outlets and a 6 foot long cord that will keep you plugged in. The outlet strip comes with 2 fasteners that snap onto an 8 inch Accessory Hanger (10-AH-00810-AH-008) placed at each end of the strip. This method allows the outlet strip to be easily moved and eliminates the need for any drilling.
Please Note - Safety First: When handling any electrical appliance or device it is important to ensure proper grounding. These Power Strips below have a third prong cord plug which is intended to fit the round grounding slot on most modern outlet receptacles. The presence of this third prong indicates that the appliance or device has a grounding system, and it is essential that these be plugged into grounded outlets for maximum safety. If you have any questions regarding proper grounding with your home's or business's wiring and outlet system, we strongly recommend consulting with a licensed electrician prior to use.
Overview of the items used for the outlet rail installation:
Attach the Outlet's brackets to the Accessory Hanger (10-AH-00810-AH-008), make sure it is put together the same way as the image below.
Attach the Accessory Hanger (10-AH-00810-AH-008) with Outlet bracket attached to desired location on Wall Control Slotted Pegboard.
Make sure the outlet is completely attached to the brackets.
Done! Enjoy your new Pegboard Power Strip.
