Daisey Chaines

No these are not flowers although they could spark like flowers if one is created out of Surge Protectors.
Where I work, we do a yearly risk survey or audit. Over the past 4 years we have been trying to teach our employees not to plug a surge protector into another surge protector. Finally, this year, they seem to have grasped the consept.
Some may ask what is wrong with plugging a surge protecor into another surge protector (“Daisey Chain”)? Well the best way I can put it is that two negatives make a posotive and thus the surge protection doesn’t work. They cancel each other out. All of the equipment that was plugged into the surge protectors might as well have been plugged into the wall. If you need more length, buy a surge protector that has a longer cord.
