WARNING: The web page description for this product is wrong. The photograph and Model number (R51-515CV-0OR) are a two-piece connector. The description, which is also somewhat generic of all Leviton connectors states “Hinged design provides fast, easy assembly” which applies to other plugs and connectors. The photographs in this review are for the R51-515CV-0OR two-piece connector. SUMMARY: EVERYTHING I WANT AND EXPECT FOR A HEAVY-DUTY RESIDENTIAL CONNECTOR. BACKGROUND: I do a lot of DIY electrical around my house and shop. I often repurpose equipment cords and wiring for second lives. As a result, I use a lot of after-market plugs and connectors. The chance to try out the Leviton 15 Amp 125-Volt 3-Wire Connector in orange PVC was too good to pass up. FIT AND FINISH: This is a residential duty connector, but it isn’t a lightweight. The terminal body and shell are thick and sturdy. I like the orange color because it’s easy to find the connector. It has a good feel in my hand and the shape makes it easy to use. INSTALLATION: I prefer electrical plugs and connectors with two-part bodies. I removed the shell with a partial turn of the retaining screw (#2 Philips) and slid it down the wire. Don’t cut too much of the wire jacket off because the wire clamp on the shell body should be able to clamp the jacket, not the wires. The terminal body had a strip guide cast into the terminal block. The stripped wires slid into the terminal connectors in the block easily and I used a #1 Square drive to tighten them down. I finished up by sliding the shell back onto the terminal body, tightening the retaining screws, then tightening the wire support screws. This connector has a larger indexing boss for aligning the connector body and shell which I found much easier to identify and use when reassembling the connector. SUMMARY: An excellent connector. Will probably become my standard connector for the shop and house wiring work. PROS: Sturdy, rugged, locator boss on body and shell.

Nice high quality replacement plug
I have two extension cords whose female receptacles were very loose--plugs would just fall out. Since all the 3 receptacles on each of the two cords had the same issue, they were clearly not very good quality, but the cord itself was relatively heavy duty and the male plug was just fine. Unfortunately I didn't see any multi-receptacle replacement plugs, so I picked up two of these plugs, which just happen to match the orange color of my extension cord plugs. If you can strip wires and use a screwdriver, you can replace a plug with these Leviton connectors. The plug comes apart easily, has three large terminal screws with plenty of room around them. It took me less than 10 minutes to replace the plugs on my two extension cords. These Leviton plugs are nice and heavy duty and are very tight--it takes a fair amount of force to insert a plug, and it holds on plenty tight. I now have two perfectly usable extension cords.

Lousey design, I’ll never buy them again. Too hard to wire and screws seem to be the wrong size.
