Works Perfect
We purchased this product along with a 40' power cord after seeing it on display at our local electric co-op meeting. When it arrived we had our electrician to come out to install it and it took him all of 15 minutes. The utility company unplugged the meter and he plugged it in and the meter was reinstalled. We tested it and EVERYTHING woked perfectly! Yes...it may have been a little pricey but it will be more than well worth it the first time we have to use in the event of a power outage. It's so simple to use that even my wife can hook it up and get things going in the event that I'm not at home. Comfort and convenience is what it's all about and it's MUCH safer than having drop cords laying all over the floor and being brought in through an open window. WE LOVE IT!!!

    Product is as explained and it did work but very overpriced! Cord is supplied and only goes in one way. transfer switches as soon as power is supplied from generator whether there is utility power or not. 10 min installation time. I hope it will last for many years.

    Iowa, The GenerLink is a very low cost options for a transfer switch installation. Manual transfer switches can cost you thousands of dollars for the switch and then the installation. Yes, our power cord is a proprietary cord and is provided with the GenerLink at the time of purchase. If you need assistance, please contact our office directly at: 800-886-3837.

    Home Depot Customer, as the manufacture of the GenerLink meter socket, we try to keep the prices very fair to the consumer. However, we can't control the prices the distributor places on the units. Please contact our office for further assistance @ 800-886-3837. GlobalPowerProducts

    Park,
    Thank you for your review. We have done several price studies on transfer switches and feel our prices with the installation are a great deal less expensive than a manual transfer switch. Please feel free to contact us at: 800-886-3837 if there is anything else we can do to assist you. GlobalPowerProducts

    This is a pretty slick solution to hooking up a portable generator to your house. I live in a mobile home with my wife who suffers from congestive heart failure. Loss of power with resulting loss of air conditioning in the summer (north Florida; summer is March to November ) can be quite hazardous to her health, so I needed to be able to run central air conditioning in the house. I purchased a 9200 watt portable generator that has the capacity for this, but needed a way to hook it up to the house. This was BY FAR the most simple, efficient and safe way to do so. But it requires no additional panels, interlocks, or switches; just plug the generator cable into the 40 Amp Meter Mounted Transfer Switch, turn off stuff on the breaker panel you don't want coming on (for me it was just the hot water heater; the generator was capable of running everything else but the dryer and stove simultaneously. I just wont turn on the dryer or stove), crank up the generator and continue on with life. My power company installed it for me within two days of asking them at no charge. I think this is a wonderful solution, but it is also BY FAR the most expensive way as it costs roughly $800 which seems like a lot. Perhaps the price will drop in a few years as competition enters the market, but for now it will cost the device 1 star. I will have to wait a few years to tell how durable it is, but for now, its the bee's knees.
