Cordset Adaptor
(1) male plug
(1) female connector

Do you have a generator which does NOT have the 240V standard 4 pole twist lock receptacle for matching up to the standard cordsets and switches?  Not a problem!   Read on...

Most of the cordsets and transfer switches and panels sold are set up for 4 pole twist lock plugs and receptacles such as NEMA types L1420 and L1430.  But some smaller generators and those without control panels may only have the 3 pole straight blade 120V or 240V NEMA duplex receptacle.

If one of your generator's outlets is sufficient for providing full capacity (or close to full capacity) then simply order this straight-through adaptor.

Go here for Y adaptors.

Cord clamp with terminal clamps and screws for superior wire holding and excellent conductivity.  Color may vary.  Assembled from UL listed components.

We can also make these adaptors LONGER than 1 foot.  Just add the additional number of feet of the proper cord from this table by clicking the right column:

If this is the selected plug: ...then add the desired number of feet of this cord:
(1)NEMA 5-15P  120V 15A SJ 12/3
(1)NEMA 5-20P  120V 20A SJ 12/3
(1)NEMA 6-15P  240V 15A SJ 12/3
(1)NEMA 6-20P  240V 20A SJ 12/3
