Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveT Looks good - great price - online specs wrong its a outdoor rated cord.
Purchased a 7500 watt generator and setting up home with a outside power inlet box routing back to main panel using the generator panel interlock system. Read the other review where the online specs clearly indicate this is for indoor use. Even when I looked at it in the store the box says 'A cord set not marked for outdoor use is to be used indoors only. See label for outdoor marking" How confusing can this get. You have to take the cord out of the box to look at the label that is attached to the cord itself and yes this is a outdoor rated cord. Why else would it come with "Outlets are weather-guard protected when not being used". Home Depot has to clean up this description / Spec sheet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by coyotekathy It Works
It's a cord. It fits. It works. But most important, its color scheme matches the generator--something every DIYer looks for.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Great product - poor description
I bought this cord to go from my generator to the pole that is wired for an emergency generator. It is well built, and looks as if it will hold up to the weather. The only thing that I would change is home depots description on line. It needs to include that it has the NEMA L14-30 plugs at both ends. It left me guessing by the gauge of the wire and the pictures listed on the web site. If I hadn't had lots of time to get this product, I would have had to buy one elsewhere. Like I said... Great product - Poor description!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by inthedark generator cord
before this i had to run several extension cords to the items i needed to power but after i installed an interlock kit on the service panel and power box inlet which i got at home depot . i needed a way to to connect the 7500k generator to the house and this is perfect for the job . the cord has a light at one end to let you know the generator is putting out power , very flexible , brightly colored to see at nite ,and can handle the full power of my generator .i have seen cheaper ones online and other stores but were not of this quality and this is branded by ridgid. i went back and forth cause of the price but i thought to myself since i spent alot of money on my generator / interlock kit/ inlet box / house . i didnt want to rely everything on a cheaper , less quailty cord . very happy of my purchase

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grizzlypower2001 Nice priced generator cord
I have been installing many generator main breaker interlocks over the past few years. I've used many different cords, made my own, and found the ridgid cord worth every penny. The quality is up there with all the rest, but the cost is still decent.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sheltonctowner Rigid extension cord is a great value
The Rigid extension cord arrived quickly after order was placed. The cord is heavy duty and made from quality materials. You would be unable to make this cord for the price paid. I put it to use during huricane Sandy and it performed !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Howitzer 25' 30 amp generator power cord
Looks well made easy to see ( tripping hazard), not used as this is for a standby generator. Tag states for outside.
