wiring question..

Hello all,

Is there a method to wire multiple shop lights in parallel (the brooder hoods) so one only needs a single plug? I'm using 3 of the 8.5" fixtures for a 20 long and I'll be hanging them from a light bar, and it would be a lot cleaner and neater if I could do this. I swear I read somewhere that Hoppy did this, but I can't remember. If this is a ridiculous query I apologize-electrical engineering is not my forte!

Sure. Just connect all the hots together and all the neutrals together with the new cord.

Thanks! I forgot when I posed this question that I work with PhD's in electrical engineering and not just bionerds. Haha. They said the same thing...
