Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very rugged construction but,.... Cord is very rugged construction but the female end does not easily plug into and lock to anything but itself. I cannot make the the male plug that came with my generator plug into the female end of this cord and lock in with the twist action. If it doesn't twist and lock the pair falls apart with the slightest bump. After much wiggling, it finally plugged into my new Reliance inlet box and locked. I have looked at similar 30 A cords in other stores and they all appear to be made by the same company so, I don't expect that a different cord from the same place would be any better. I am not very happy with this cord but it will do what I want. Picture upload on review website doesn't work. February 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emergency Cable is well built Product has not been used yet, only checked for attachment to home and generator. It's quality leaves not doubt in my mind it will work perfectly. January 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy Duty Had to special order this. Arrived quickly. Price seems a little high but it does what it is suppose to do. October 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Generator cord Used cord a few times and it is fine. Well constructed and weather resistant. Like the cap you can put on the female end in case you plug into the generator first. A bit more expensive, but good quality March 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very easy to use- cable manufactured with very high quality materials I have used the cable without any problems. No overheating , connection or arcing. Great reliable product October 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product. Well built and does what it's made to do. A little pricey but if your generator can't be located close enough to the inlet box, this solves that problem. December 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arrived timely and as described Haven't had the need to use this yet but it arrived timely and as described. December 25, 2012
