Pick a plug slider

1453 1
I'm adding a retractable cord reel for opportunity charging; the plan is to have a fixed plug (for attaching to the extension cord in my garage) next to the cord reel plug in some kind of housing where a sliding cover would allow only one plug to be accessible at a time. Has anyone done/seen anything similar or have suggestions for a slick implementation?

so your just wanting a window where it shows either one or the other plug? Would a home fuse box cabinet work?

Or could you make the retractable one such that it locks into a position to allow a firm connection to another plug? (slot into a holster type arrangement)

failing that I would just run the retractable one to your garage socket. (or install 2 chargers just for giggles lol)
