Hey gang,
I posted this in the codes section, and got some great advice.....I thought about it, and thought it might be better suited for this forum.
Can I legally wired a male plug on NM-B (Romex) cable?
I've been told no because of rating/limiting
Does anyone know where I can find this in the NEC?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
If I knew it all....I wouldn't be here asking!!

Find me a plug (cord cap) that states in the manufacturers instructions that it is suitable for connection to NMC, and I will have to accept it...
Hence the terms "male cord cap" "female cord cap"...not "male NMC cap"etc.....
