No.

How do I know which wire goes to the polarized side of plug?

Asked by Tammie September 12, 2017

Answers

The neutral (wide) prong is stamped "WHITE" internally. Lamp cord (AKA zip cord) has two joined conductors, one, the neutral, is ribbed. The ribbed wire goes to the "WHITE" (wide) terminal.

SPT-1 or SPT-2?

How do I install this plug. I have a cord with an existing plug that is attached to a light fixture?

Asked by TDog November 23, 2015

Answers

Strip both wires about 3/8". Feed cord thru hole in end and attach wire to screw terminals under screw plate. Ridged wire is neutral. Ribbed wire connects to silver screw or widest prong. Make sure all wire strands are screwed down tightly. Close cover and install case screws. If the doesn't make sense, call an electrician.

Polarized two blade replacement plug.
An easily installed replacement plug that provides safety due to polarized blades. I installed this plug on my vacuum cleaner to replace a broken blade on the original. It also provides strain relief due to the internal design so tugging on the cord will not strain the wire connections. The blades are labeled inside for correct installation.

Works fine for ungrounded but polarized applications. The housing is one piece and folds shut but feels kind of flimsy. The terminals are screw only without a clamp. It works well enough but looks clunky.

Not so easy with 14 gauge wire
Note that several recent reviews mention difficulty with final step, closing the housing. Cuisinart coffeemaker routinely loses contact from wire to plug at 2 to 3 years. Cord is a bit thick, 14 gauge. Tried to follow instructions. Note that on 5/30 Sue review "had to smash the cover down." AZS on 4/7 chose to "cut away some of the interior plastic." Agree also with Jer1605 from Jan 2019 that, "Exposing a little more insulated wire and stripping the wire slightly longer" was necessary with 14 gauge. I liked the FAIRLY detailed instructions, although besides the measurements just mentioned being unsuitable (1) the diagram did not exactly match my sample, and (2) a more detailed diagram about laying in the various parts of the wire would have been appreciated. Still, plug does seem solid construction and practical, although not exactly easy or convenient--at least with 14 gauge cord. With narrower, more pliable cord, it probably would be easier to use.

It works well, but the insert area for the wires is very tight. I really had to smash the cover down in order for it to close.

The plug worked for what I needed it for, but only after I cut away some of the interior plastic so I could close the two halves and put the screws in to fully close the plug.

I purchased this polarized plug to repair a damaged round 2 wire extension cord. Following the instructions provided a well connected sturdy repair with minimal effort. Exposing a little more insulated wire and stripping the wire slightly longer made it a little easier to make the connections.
