    Hello,
    I'm new to the boards and I know there are similar threads as this one but none offer a solution for my specific case. I own the Pedaltrain PT PRO and I use a Voodoo Lab Power Plus 2 to power my pedals. I have the Voodoo power supply mounted underneath the Pedaltrain so that the power cord comes out the back of the pedaltrain. The issue I have is that this makes the courtesy outlet on the Voodoo power supply in accessible. The outlet is visible but I can't fit an AC adapter in that space. Are there any extension cords that anyone can recommend that would fit into space? I have searched and searched online but have not been able to find anything for sale or in any of the forums. Can anyone recommend a solution?

    Hi Monstercastle,
    Something like that might fit. However I forget to mention that I want to find something that comes out at a 90 degree so that I can leave it plugged in when I put the board in the case.

    Orientation of the cable is going to be the challenge. Most right angle plugs have the cable out at 6 o-clock. Units that swivel may be too big to fit between the rails. I have the PT-Pro too, with the Voodoo Mondo. I just unplug to fit in the case.

    I went through this predicament with trying to use the outlet for my DMM. Thread is here:http://www.thegearpage.net/board/in...ch-the-extra-pp2-outlet-with-a-pt-pro.633981/

    What finally worked for me was to get some lamp cord and the thinnest 2-prong lamp plug at Home Depot. The plug is small enough where uoi can bend the lamp cord and route it under the board. I would take a pic for you but the board is at practice. I tried every plug you buy that you can imagine and that was the only one that worked

    Hi DonaldDemon,
    I did make something already but it didn't fit, none of the parts at the hardware store were small enough.
    I will try a different store to see if I can find something else.

    Yeah that's still too thick. You need this type plug: http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-15-Amp-125-Volt-Quick-Wire-Plug-Brown-2-Pack-54266/203728052

    and some lamp wire: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Southwire-18-2-Lamp-Wire-Black-By-the-Foot-49910399/204724989
