Rated 1.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defective The female end of the cord got extremely hot and started smoking 15 minutes after being plugged in and not in use. Very scary. June 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not as shown This is a really nice cord, don't get me wrong but it is not the cord that is shown in the photo. When my cord arrived it appeared to be a custom made and while of good quality the male plug gives me problems when I plug it into my generator. All the stars I gave to this cord were for the quality of materials used to make it, the two lost stars were for the fact that I will need to modify this cord to use it with my generator more easily. I would like to note that I ordered this cord during the second weather related blackout that left more than half the people in Connecticut without power so I would imagine that the manufacturer was probably doing whatever they had to so that they could fill orders during a time of heavy demand. If I was to buy this again, I would purchase it in the store so I could see what i was buying and if there were any interference issues. December 27, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very dissatisfied with power cord I had to return both products because the cord was not as shown on website.Instead of having rubber raintight plugs on each end it had plastic assembled plugs which were not raintight.I called the manufacturer and was told that this model of cord was no longer made with the raintight plugs,so I returned the cord to purchase one from a different manufacturer that was raintight but not sold by Home Depot.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not what I thought This was not the heavy duty cord I was expecting , however it will work and I am not returning it. June 11, 2011
