Rated 4 out of 5Â by Stan A good inlet for a power generator
The power inlet was easy to assemble. I used # 10 wire to connect up to a double pull 30 amp breaker. It's better to use thinner wire such as #12 to make it easier to make all the connections. This box can adequately hold a connecting 30 amp 10/4 power cord in place. A better method would be to use a twist lock adapter to ensure the power cord stays well connected to inlet box.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Newbysan Great Product
Bought this to complete my home generator setup. Mounted easily to outside wall to run cable to breaker panel in basement. Quality construction. A little pricey but it's hard to fine a NEMA male twist-lock plug and box for DIY'rs. Best value was Home Depot. Worth the price to do the job the right way. Purchased online from Home Depot, fast delivery. Very satisfied with product and service.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rev2010 This box is a great inlet for your generator
After going through three hurricanes, I decided that I did want a generator to provide power for the refrigerator and the television. We found that you really need the TV to keep track of where gasoline is and when power is likely to be restored and what is in your neighborhood in the way of storms. Without an inlet box like this, you wind up with extension cords either through a window or through a door. In either case, you now have mosquitos. With this box on the outside, and a 2 gang duplex outlet on the inside, I was able to take the 240 volt 2 phase power into the inside of the house where it became 2 120v duplex outlets. My generator only puts out 2 120 volt circuits that are each limited ot 15 volts by circuit breaker if you use the L14-30R outlet that this box enables you to get to the house. I used a heavy duty 10 awg extension cord, also from home depot, from the generator to this box so that there is very little voltage drop getting to the inside extensions to the refrigerator, TV and satellite receiver, Computer, printer, cable modem, fans and lights. This box is a critical item for the storm preparations.

Jason at Home Depot-Lapeer MI was very helpful. After 5 day power outage I wasn't going to go through extension cords again. Product was easy to install with clear instructions.
