Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dannyw001 Cord does carry warranty
I was surprised by the number of negative reviews for something that has the Ridgid name. I just bought this 3-prong cord and will report on its longevity after I use it a bit (if I remember to). However, I wanted to correct something in another review. The cord I bought states on the package that it has a full lifetime warranty against material defects and workmanship.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Craig Did not hold up under cold conditions
I used this extension cord for several months out in my carport where weather temperatures varied from 40 degrees to Zero. The cord failed at the three way plug it and from what I could see started arching inside the clear plastic covering to the point that it began to smoke.
I found that the tools plugged into the unit fit snug and was satisfied with the product until it failed on its own. Because I got such a short life span of use for the tool I would not recommend it to anyone for purchase.
In addition, Rigid does not warranty this item.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Skip Doesn't stay connected.
I'm very disappointed in the purchase of this product. I had a choice between buying a cheaper one at the store and I wish I had. I figured that you get what you pay for so bought the expensive one. I noticed immediately that my table saw doesn't want to power on and soon as the plug is moved you tools are disconnected. The only thing I would recommend with using this product is using electrical tape to keep your tools connected but for me that's more hassle then I want to deal with. I think I'm going to be avoiding the rigid brand for awhile on future tool purchases. You would think quality control would of overlooked this problem.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mathelo Looks good ... NOT!!!
This multi-head extension cord looks well built cosmetically but the contact surface in the female end is so small and weak that anything plugged into will lose contact with the sligttest movement. Do not buy this item!!!

Just the right size for what I needed. Well made, sturdy.
I like that it lights when power runs through it.
