    Well, I have to say that is a new one on me. I didn't know that electricity slowed down in the corners. :lol:

    The only way that would help is if it burned the wire at that point (point of knot) and that would only happen if it was shorting to something else (which raises a whole different set of concerns).

    Thats exactly what happens and slows the surge down just enough to pop the protector. Other wise the strike is to fast to trip it. This is from my brother thats work for Senco for over 30 years. I just listen some of the times.
