My clampmeter will not read current on a powercord

A clampmeter can only measure current around one conductor and a power cord has multiple conductors. If you want to use a clampmeter on a power cord you will need a line splitter.

This will separate the conductors so you can measure the current going to the power cord you have plugged into the line splitter.
