Making The Switch

In order to protect the 4-prong electric dryer cord and hold it securely in place, a strain relief cord connector is used. This serves two purposes by keeping the cord from being cut on the metal of the machine and it protects the electrical connections from being pulled loose if the cord is pulled on.

In order to remove the clamp, squeeze the two halves together with pliers and remove the two screws using a screw driver or drill with a screw head. Remove the two halves of the clamps and the cord is ready to be removed.
