Unless specifically indicated, all curly cords are supplied UNTERMINATED.  Plastic Coated Stainless Steel Wire Rope

These extended or Drop Lengths, are not set in stone, and due to the nature of the cords, they are somewhat flexible. The longer you extend them out…the more stretched out the cord looks.  And with these cords they are used for cosmetic effect…ie to make the job look nice. So some people like to work on a 2 to 2.5 time extension as they feel this give a nicer cosmetic effect. This of course is a matter of personal opinion, and ultimately it is up to the installer and client to determine what is best for the particular situation. But as a general rule in our opinion we say 3:1 ratio is about right.

This type of cord is generally considered non self retracting.

In fact in these applications you actually don’t want the cords to self retract. you want the cord to sit at the designated height. You can stretch these cords out, and they will generally sit at the stretched length.

In many of these applications these curly power cords are fitted off using a stainless steel wire through the centre of the cords which attaches to the light fixture or the pendant outlet.

Note: It is important to not use uncoated wire as this may have an abrasive effect on the cords!

We supply the Clear Plastic Coated 304 Stainless Steel Wire: SONY DSC

Part Number PRO-PC7716 1.6mm O.D. with a thin non abrasive clear nylon coating bring it to 2mm O.D. Can supply Cut lengths or bulk 305m rolls on request.


Swages and Crimp Tools Also Supplied. (Strip the outer sheathing off prior to fitting swages)

Ask us about pendant outlets as well.

Other plugs and sockets also available.

    Hi —

    I am looking for a stretchy curly cord like a phone handset cord in hot pink. I do not need any wires in it, just basically a stretch curly cord in hot pink. Do you have anything like that or can you make it? I am looking for approximately 4 or 5 yards.

    Thanks, Karen

    • Paul Scott says:

      Hi Karen,
      Hot Pink?
      Sorry…I don’t have anything like that…in any style of cable or cord.

      I’m not aware of it being available. But someone out there may have some.,
      But unfortunately not us.

      Sorry I was unable to assist you.

      All the best…

    Hi, I need a quote for 15 x 4 meter, white cords to supply a DGPO on display shelving. 1.5mm² should be fine (unless you know any AS3000 regs that state other wise,)  is it possible to get it terminated as in the photo on your web site of the office ceiling or can you supply soft wiring terminations?

      Thanks for your inquiry, and comments.

      I’ll quickly look these up for you and email you the quote next.

      I’ve heard that comment about the wholesalers many times in the past…We actually deal with many wholsalers, but obviously not all of them.

      I’ll have to do a better job at telling the wholsalers we exist 🙂


      All the best…

    Hi Curly,

    I am repairing a 1980s flouro retracting pendant light fitting.  It has 2 curly cords of equal length, one cord is there for show, the other cord is connected to power.

    There is a retracting line that is threaded through the centre of each cord.


    Could I please get a price:


    2 x Black [is matte possible?]

    3 core / 1.5

    300mm extends to 900mm

    Outside diam 23mm  [each end needs to fit through a plastic tube]

    Tail 150mm [it would be preferable to have 300mm on the connected cord]


    I guess your ‘off the shelf’ cords are a better price point, is it possible to also get a quote on the closest of your standard cords as well?

    we need to modify a hair dryer in a commercial toilet what do you have to join
    your 240V curly cord to the shortened hair dryer lead

    • Paul Scott says:

      Hi Adam,
      Sorry…I don’t have any connectors specifically designed for this.
      I expect you could consult with your local electrical wholesaler for ideas.

      Best regards

  15. peter telford says:

    I am looking at a curly cord 2.5mm three core in white to extend to about eight metres. Is that do-able?
    If so what would be the approximate cost?

  16. Roy says:

    Hi Paul,
    I am after a curly cord about 5.3mm two core (240v), 10cm coiled length to extend to about 60 cm.
    It is for a massage chair. I am happy to send some pictures in case you need more details.
    How much would it cost + postage to Melbourne?

    Thank you

    • Paul Scott says:

      Hi Roy,
      6:1 extension ratio is very high.
      Most normal cables would not extend that far.
      We might be able to do something in a Polyurethane cable, wound to a slightly bigger diameter coil than normal.
      Yes…Pictures may help. Thanks.

      Best regards
