how long should your phone cords be?

PLEASE NOTE: Indicated lengths for handset cords
are the maximum length when s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d out.

It's not comfortable or safe to use cords when they're stretched to their maximum, so pick an appropriate length, especially for people who like to walk around.

Some people call us to order cords based on the un-stretched lengths of the cords they have, and even some websites advertise the un-stretched lengths. (People who sell cords should know better.) This chart should help you figure out what's going on. Lengths are approximate.
