Speaking from more than 40 years of industrial and commercial electrical experience, this is a poorly designed connector. The connector body is not made in a way that compresses the rubber grommet as you tighten the compression nut. Therefore, the strain is not relieved from the conductors, nor does the connector make the cord penetration weatherproof. I failed to open the package at the store to see if the connector body ID was tapered or not. Instead, it is straight-walled. Kind of pointless. This purchase turned out to be inconvenient and useless.

Needed a little lubricant to slide the rubber insert into place. Once tightened, it provided the perfect seal and strain relief for the cable

Who thought it would be a good idea to not include the lock nut?! I didn't even think to look for it, so shame on me for not looking, but come on. This is kind of like buying a new car only to discover the engine isn't included. You can't use it without the nut! The product itself is fine, just incomplete.

Who thought it was a good idea not to include the lock ring? I was in a rush, and didn’t even think it wouldn’t be in the package. If I went to a supply house it would of been included!

This Cord connector works really well. I had an issue where I needed a strain relief for a 10/2 cord I was making to connect my camper to my generator. The gen set had a 30A twist lock connector and my camper a 30A camper connector. I was making a cord to convert the connectors. I used a waterproof 2x4 external box and wanted metal 3/4" strain relief connectors because of the ruggedness. I had an issue where 1/2" ones were too small and 3/4" ones fit better, however the 3/4" one does not squeeze down enough to engage a 10/2 round cord. A couple of wraps of electrical tape and it was fat enough to fill the connector. I could have used plastic ones that squeeze smaller, but I wanted metal. It worked VERY well !!!!
