    I never had this problem with amps, but I used to screw up the jack on my basses all the time. My problem was I was always walking just a shade too far for the cord, and wrenching it out of the jack at an unpleasant angle. Then I found out that if you run the cord between the strap and the body by the tail strap button, you actually get enough notice to stop wandering around before you unplug yourself. You can feel it tugging on the strap. I haven't hosed a jack since!

    Dude when i was on the road for the first time i went through so many chords! And the above poster was correct about pulling it through your strap! Just put your bass on the pull the strap up throught the bottom! And also you can buy a tape from a plumbers supply that does not stick to anything but itself! It looks like electrical tape and you can wrap the ends of your connectors to the chord itself and it will make it 10 times stronger!
