Default 2nd Smartcord failure

I have had my 2nd Smartcord failure, seems the end that plugs into the unit tends to "peel" itself back, exposing the wiring which in turn the insulation has become peeled away exposing bare wires,, I'm certain I'm not the only one who has had this problem!

I haven't experienced this. A couple questions:
  1. How taut is the smart cord's wire?
  2. What are the summer temperatures at your location?

Thanks!

How are you installing the cord. Is there anything against it around the area where it plugs into the detector. I have not heard of this being a common problem.
