75% of the time i leave my compressor on at night so in the middle of the night that thing kicks on, I made myself a decal to remind me to turn it off.

But i wanted something else on the door also, so i made this too. LOL

That’s a good one love it.
I use a multi plug panel that I have several things plugged into and also powers my over the bench light and that way I have a reminder to shut of the panel .

Nice, I too have many times been woken up by the harsh sound of the air compressor kicking on in the middle of the night…

I have a list beside my door . All doors locked , lights out in back bay , compressor off, unplug every thing in office (I had an electrical fire that gutted my office ) , water off , windows closed . It’s a good idea .


Guilty as charged! I have left mine on a couple of times, but I’m pretty good about making sure it is off. The door reminder isn’t a bad idea though, although I might forget to read it.

Hmmm. This had me thinking about putting a switch on my outlets. Maybe I’ll look around for one of those red plates they out on boiler switches.

Good idea ,I’ve had the same problem off and on .

Many a time I have had the same problem. The $100 fee would go a long way toward shutting them up. Oh, and I have left the compressor plugged in too. Lol

I put it almost at eye level so I will always see it. Only time will tell if it will work.

Yeah Shin vinyl cutter.

That’s great!
