Ground Fault Interrupters... suggestions?

Anyone have any suggestions on a braND, or know where I can get a plug-in GFI? I can't seem to find the plug-in kind at any hardware store around here. Thanks for your help!

I've actualy seen some in pet stores near the lighting equip wiht their power strips and such. I've never used those but i would imagine they would be adequate.

check your Home Depot for a "contractor grade" extension cord ... I have seen several models, each have a GFCI breaker built into the outlet end of the cord.

they are expensive though ... between 30 and 50 depending on length!

you can see an mini-article I wrote for the APD on how to build your own for cheap:
