    I am considering mounting the HPWC on the ceiling between two of my (4) garage spaces (professional electrician, conduit, etc) and trying to use a boom mount. so I can rotate the charging plug between the two spaces. Has anyone done something like this? I was thinking of trying to use a car wash boom to hold the cabling but not sure if there are better ideas people has come up with. My Google-fu is not Master level so I didn't see what I was looking for after a few tries.
    Looking for a way to charge an S in one space and an X in another space ( not at the same time) and keeping the cabling from laying on the cars etc but be able to switch the plug between the spaces easily.

    I am prepared for the flames and trolls so all comments welcome.

    thanks,
    jim

    I mounted my HPWC on the ceiling, coiling the extra cable in the attic space above, and using a hook/cradle to keep the cable out of the way when not in use. My goal was to eliminate any tripping hazard in my garage.

    If you have an S and X spring for the second HPWC on one circuit load sharing mounted conveniently for each car.

    thanks for the replies! I have a few idea that I think will work great. I like the idea od the spring to hold the handle. I'll post back with what I choose/come up with. I hadn't considered the reset button being 14' in the air so that was a good catch.
