Yes, as you can see there are no wires. It is also bluetooth capable

I used this to replace the female end of my 10/3 extension cord which has a jacket diameter of 9/16" or 14mm. It was snug but as long as you strip the least amount of jacket possible it will work (the clamp must only clamp onto the jacket, not the conductors). Cords like mine aren't over-sized to handle more amps, the larger gauge reduces resistance over the longer distance. As long as the connectors are 15 amp (5-15R / 5-15P) that will limit anything plugged into it to a continuous draw rating of no more than 12 amps.

The better solution is to either cut the end of your new cord and hard wire it to the incoming wire inside an approved junction box or set a box with a receptacle and cover and plug your new lights into that. All wiring connections must be contained inside a non-combustible space.

NEVER use a double male cord connector. They are extremely dangerous. If you installed your Christmas lights backwards take the time to reverse them.

What is a 120V connector called that has a female end and a male end (opposite ends)?

An "extension cord."

Will this work with MC Cable? Also can this be used Outside?

Asked by Jenny April 1, 2020
3
Answers

I wouldn't. For outside you should install a grounded box with the proper connector for the cable and a GFCI outlet. The cover plate for the GFCI should be weather resistant (has lid that covers it when not in use).

are the screws color coded

Yes: Hot is brass colored. Neutral is silver. Ground is green.

Can I use this to replace a female end of a 12/3 AWG 300V VW1 rated 25ft extension cord?

Asked by Wanda May 9, 2020
3
Answers

No. Your extension cord is rated at 300 volts for safety reasons and this plug is rated at only 125 volts for safety reasons. Avoid risk of injury to yourself and potential fire by purchasing the exact replacement cord needed for your equipment. Better to be safe than trying to save a couple of bucks.

Connecting wires of extension cord to your plug

Asked by jim July 9, 2016

Answers

White wire connects to the larger slot. Most modern connectors have a silver screw for the white wire that connects the larger slot. The black wire (which should be the wire carrying the voltage) connects to the smaller slot, which should have a brass colored screw.

Answer

If it will fit into the recess in the tool handle it will work. BUT the extension cord MUST be a 3 wire cord or you violate code by hooking up a grounded plug without the ground connected. They make a similar plug for 2 wire cord that doesn't have the ground.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
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.
