如何防止插入的吸塵器線纏結?


1

我正在尋找一個救生員,以防止插入的吸塵器電線纏在一起。

tangled cord

真空吸塵器無法輕易拔出,許多人會使用它。

到目前為止,我最好的解決方案是讓每個人都注意他們如何吸塵,並嘗試在一個方向上進行盡可能多的轉向。但這說起來容易做起來難。

是否有更好,更靈活的解決方案?

如果沒有,我很樂意回答說明如何解開電源線而不拔出電源線或不握住真空吸塵器並旋轉電源線數十次(並希望猜出正確的方向!)的答案。

If a non-accessible power outlet is the only option you have, I recommend you invest in a short extension cord, just long enough to reach from the original outlet to the floor (to allow the plugged end to lay on the floor instead of hanging and putting unnecessary stress on the original outlet). You can look into premade cords or craft exactly the preferred length with a piece of cable and two end pieces. For more details on that, ask your hardware store or our sister site Home Improvement.

Then you can simply unplug the vacuum cleaner when you need to untangle the cord and plug it back in as needed.

Bonus: You are free to move the vacuum to other places that you previously couldn’t reach, e.g. storing it out of sight or using it on another floor. You could even “hide” the permanent section a bit by using a white instead of a black extension.

Use a heatgun (on its lowest setting) or hairdryer to heat the wire’s rubber insulation, then tug it to straighten it before it cools down.

Rubber has some shape retention; this happens in part because your vacuum has been hot when you return the wire to its coil, and in part because rubber is crappy.

To avoid this happening again, let the vacuum cool down for 10 minutes before coiling it. Use a figure-8 winding pattern if you never want the nuisance again.
