My daughter's overpriced flat iron uses this exact cord with built-in GFCI/ALCI:
The cord rotates at the iron, as you can see from the non-plug end. How does the
connector disconnect from the iron? I don't want to pull on it. Might there be a
retaining clip inside?
Does a flat iron that's plugged into a GFCI outlet, as is required by code in
bathrooms in US, even need an inline GFCI?
Home Depot has this replacement that might even be a better quality GFCI:
I've learned to save the cord from a defective hair dryer if the GFCI is still
good. These parts are probably $2 from China, but they're $20 or more in the US.
On a somewhat related question, can someone suggest a very compact inline method
of splicing a DC power cord? I've used these in the past for replacing DC power
connectors on laptop power supplies, but the strain relief is in the way.
Rather than a connector, I'd rather find some sort of cable splice. If that
fails, I can always solder wire-to-wire and cover the splice with heat shrink
