In the majority of the cases, if something goes wrong, they will trigger your RCD’s or your circuit breakers and may leave a part of your house with no power. If you have old fuse board, this may lead to electrocution and serious life-threatening situation.

The cord might get damaged by repeatedly closing and opening the door or window through which it is run. If you have pets, you are already aware that both cats and dogs have a passion for wires and rubbery objects, which would lead to the obvious risk of the power cord to get chewed. Biting into a live cable could have serious consequences for your pets.
