Stumbled (literally) across this extention cord on a residential job site. The one at the top is a good cord, the one at the bottom is what happens when you make your own!

Both look like romex with a cord cap.

I'd at least cover them joints with Insulation tape!. [Linked Image]

Hey, they are both yellow. That makes them the same, doesn't it?

Hey Dave,
Just a small question.
What sort of connector is that in the bottom of the picture with the Romex coming out of it?
If my eyes don't decieve me, it looks a lot like an IEC connector, like computer power supplies use.

Trumpy, you might be right. It's a stretch, but an upside-down NEMA 5-15P cord cap can be forced into a 10-amp IEC 320 C13/14 female connector, and offer exclusive "ground isolation" in the process.
