Default Buying a longer power cord?

I finally got around to putting up some cable raceways for my ceiling mounted projector, I was tired of the cords just dangling down. But now I realize that the power cable is way too short.

I see that amazon has some universal power cords made by Cables to Go, but I want to make sure they wont damage my projector since they aren't supplied by Epson.

Has anyone used these type of universal power cords, for a projector?

They'll be fine. It's just a power cord. Two copper strands, a ground and insulation. It looks well made. It can't hurt the projector or anything else. It's just a standard appliance cord. Just don't lift the ground (plug it in to a 3-prong outlet). You can also just get a heavy duty extension cord for the existing cord.
loose="not tight", lose="can't find it, doesn't have anymore" or the opposite of "win".
their="belongs to", there="place", they're="they are", there's = "there is"
it's="it is", for everything else use "its"
then="after", than="compared with"
"a lot" not "alot"

Thanks for the reply, I will buy that one.
I had considered an extension cord, but the plugs are way to big to fit in the cable channel.
