Here are the problems with this connector:

- It is manufactured from very cheap, thin, and very easy to crack/shatter plastic. When held in my hands, I can easily deform the thin plastic shell by simply squeezing it. The connector would easily allow moisture to enter. Inexpensive, over-the counter IEC cables with molded ends are much stronger and safer.

- The strain relief boot is too narrow of a diameter to accommodate many standard 14/3 cables. Not sure why. I thought this was a reasonable spec for most single-device connectors.

- The connector is held together by only one flathead screw. Said screw runs through the middle of the connector, forcing a pretty major bend between the strain relief and the ground terminal. Also, since the connector is held together by just one screw, as stated before, there is play in the connector. I.E. it is relatively easy to deform the connector.

In conclusion, you are much better off purchasing an over-the-counter molded IEC cable than building one using this connector. I would highly dissuade anyone from using these in a situation where they will be moved, repeatedly plugged/unplugged, or used with devices that could potentially draw more than a couple of amps. To do so would be unnecessarily dangerous.

The item pictured appears to be the Schurter 4782. Whether the item delivered to the other reviewer is the item pictured, I don't know. But if the item delivered in in fact the item pictured, then from personal experience I can say that this is a fine connector. Schurter makes a wide variety of electrical connectors and to my knowledge is a well respected company. The Schurter 4782 is manufactured to the IEC 60320-1 standard and has an IEC rating of 10A/250V. Power couplers manufactured to this standard have an IPX0 degree of water protection, which is to say no protection. So it is not a valid criticism to say the plug will allow moisture to enter, since it was not designed to be moisture-proof. I have used the Schurter 4782 with Belden 19364 which is shielded 14/3 AWG and the strain relief is indeed a very tight fit. The connector is held together with just one screw, but when the plug is screwed together to the specified torque, there is no play and the shell is not easily deformed. If you weren't interested in making up your own power cords, you wouldn't be looking at a rewireable plug in the first place and probably would be better off buying a molded cord.
