Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oxyacetylene Works great, nice clean look also
This works great if you have a large enough knockout in your panel and have room for it on the inside of the panel where it installs. Perfect for an outside panel with breakers in it. The description says it takes a 2.5" knockout, but that is "trade size". It actually uses a 3" knockout. Once installed it is barely noticeable, rather than having a separate box for an inlet. The inlet uses 3 machine screws that go through the housing and into a backing plate put on the inside of the panel. It's a little bit finicky getting it mounted and aligned, so take your time and watch to make sure the gasket doesn't get bunched up. To be safe and code-compliant, make sure to use this in conjunction with a transfer switch, or a manual interlock system.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bake Great Unit if Complete Assembly Ships
Recieved this unit from online order today and was impressed with quality but did not include the spring cover.
My attempts to contact supplier (Relience) went to a phone message machine that would not accept messages. For an outdoor aplication the cover is required. I guess it is a good thing this is an electrical input at not a saftey issue of exposed prongs.
I recommend this if Home Depot can follow up on quality assurance with their suppliers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Great product.
I would recommend this to professional electricians only, like myself. It needs a suitable box to mount it in, with proper room inside the box, as the body of the connector goes inside the box. It also requires a 3" hole (21/2" conduit size), so if your box doesn't have that size knockout, you should have a knock-out punch or hole saw of the correct size handy. One bad point is that Home Depot wouldn't ship to me in Hawaii, so I had it shipped to my son on the mainland and he mailed it to me. It is not very big, so I don't get why they won't ship to Hawaii. It only cost him $6.95 to mail it to me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ITGuy Make sure you have Clearance under the knockout
Great deal if you already have a box and a transfer switch. My concern was the clearance to a sub panel under my transfer switch. The plug that gos inside is 4.5" long plus a little more for the cord.

Did exactly what I needed. Perfect to connect my Generator to a backfeed on my breaker panel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by kirbinster Good product, better value than unit in metal case
This is a great item if you have an existing panel that you can install it in and don't really need a separate metal box.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dennis Online photo shows this in a box, but no box.
I was disappointed that this was only the "guts" plus the cover. No box and no screws to mount in a box. Other than that, it is a good product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DKFarms Convenient Access for Generator Input
Fit in the side of a surface mounted distribution panel using the 3" knockout. Very sturdy when mounted correctly. I did have to trim the edges of the mounting ring a little on the grinder to get it to fit perfectly in the panel.
