I agree with the other reviews, this thing will do the job, but don't expect it to hold up in heavy-duty use. The entire body, wires and terminal screws are covered with a thin rubber boot. After having had this in use for 2 years on an extension cord the rubber is starting to crack, looks like "dry rot". It has been stored, and used inside only, so it hasn't been exposed to direct sunlight.

I say good only for light duty, home use, that rubber boot would get dragged off in a commercial/industrial setting.

Added: I have since found a much better product made by Cooper Wiring Devices, their part No. 6709N. It is an industrial grade nylon/polypropylene/phenolic cord connector with built-in strain relief. It costs a little more, but should be well worth it if your welder extension cord gets much use.

This connector is very poorly designed and a real pain to wire up. The terminals require you to bend your cord or wire at a 90° angle which is never good for wire and this also creates a hump in the rubber sleeve. The sleeve or boot is only retained onto the connector with compression, not a clamp or screws like most designs. The only way to put a proper strain relief on the tail end would be to use a steel hose clamp, not the safest idea. I have not found an alternative to this other than a wall mount receptacle mounted to a small board, a tad ghetto.

This is fair receptacle for the price but its minimum quality and best for use as a spare. Came without a clamp for the boot and the pictured clamp was barely a clamp, a tywrap would work as well.

I used this and the male-version of the same from Hobart to create an extension cable for my 240V welding machine. I am not 100% sure of the terminology but I believe this would be considered a NEMA 6-50C coupler (and the male end a NEMA 6-50P). I've only found these online at the large industrial sites and never for less than $50 a pop before tax and shipping.

Mine is labelled "Made in Mexico." The wire locking mechanism (screw-down terminals), instructions and rubber boot are all perfectly adequate. I do not expect any problems. I share the same hesitations as another reviewer about the lack of a clamp or strain-relief for the wires however my main wire covering was a very tight fit and I threw two heavy-duty zip-ties on for good measure.

If you are a contractor and will be lugging this cable to a different site every day or if you're company is footing the bill, then go ahead and get a -- presumably -- higher quality unit from an industrial supplier. If your use is anything less than professional this coupler will do just fine. In fact, I am buying another one now to make an adapter for an electric-dryer receptacle for times when that is the only plug accessible to me.
