NOCO Genius External Plug

Just installed mind on my lower front fascia. Anyone else do this for the block heater?

Great install, it blends in with the fascia very nice. Where did you pick it up at? I have used the ones by Kussmaul for my Ford Powerstoke Diesels in the past, they are the same kind used on emergency vehicles. As soon as you start the vehicle it ejects the cord so you can pull away without having to unplug it.

I found mine on amazon for ~$15. Drilling through was the most difficult part.

Tell me more about this product that ejects the power cord. My Diesel is my wife's DD and I'm afraid she would try and drive off with the cord still attached.

Fire and EMS equipment use this. Whenever vehicle power is switched on, a spring-loaded plunger inside the receptacle ejects the female plug, and a spring loaded latch closes the door, effectively sealing the receptacle from the elements.

Re: NOCO Genius External Plug

I took a look at the ejector plugs. They're not very pretty, though you can get different color covers. I've been puzzling over where I could mount something like that in an inconspicuous fashion. I *know* my wife wouldn't remember to unplug unless the hood was up.

In the fire service, its more about function and less about aesthetics. But I concur, where to mount is a ponderous question indeed.

Highly doubtful that the felt liners will be rigid enough to support of the auto ejector.

Are there decent quality extension cords that retain pliability in subzero temps? I imagine such would exist, so which products are recommended?

The one I currently use basically turns into a tree branch at low temps. Even if it auto ejected it would probably just stay there.

So do you have a link to the one you bought and installed?
