Wall charger safety

Wall charger safety

Thinking of mounting a wall charger on the outside wall between garage bays. Any concerns with safety i.e. kids playing around with It? Is there a way to lock the handle to avoid unauthorized use?

No, Yes.

Bighorn, how do you lock the handle???

You lock the car's charge port, not the handle. Charger is not energized until it confirms electronic handshake safely inside the car's charge port.

People have built little lock boxes for the cord.

Bighorn is always right.

However, there are those who choose to use an electrical lockbox to secure their exterior 14-50 installation. No pictures allowed here any longer. You may be able to find something at TMC, though:
