These can include flash cords, remote cords, extension cords, motor drive cords, power pack cords, adapter cords, off camera shoe cords, sync cords and cords to fit into your computer or printer.
Make sure you are using the proper cord for the job you are doing. Never yank the cord out from the middle, always insert and pull cords out from the proper end attachments.
