STP 1 V STP 2 Question


Recommended Posts

Quick question...When ordering Male and Female plugs for my STP 2 wire...I ordered SPT 1 Male ends (accidentally)  and SPT 2 Female ends.  I was able to use the SPT 1 Male ends to make an extension cord, but just wanted to check to see if this was a risk due to the difference in insulation. The cord worked when I used the SPT 1 Male and The SPT 2 Female.  

Anyone have an input as to why this would be a bad thing or be dangerous?


Thanks for the feedback.

NO only difference is the insulation. I have several cords that are like that. As long as the "fangs" puncture through, yer ok. .015 difference in the insulation is not mas much as people think.
