Hey you guys ever put a cord cap on 12/2 or 14/2. or make a cord of any sorts? Can you legally?with all the UL stuff and listed for the purpose? Thats why I do the switch and direct wire method got into a pissing contest in wilmington with inspector for making a cord not listed and all that but at the time I had no time for so installed switch and direct wired. No problems anyone have any feed back about this.As far as can you make a cord to plug in the dish washer?

Whirlpool will sell you a dish washer and disposal with a factory installed cord and plug. That eliminates the need to field build anything.
My favorite builder doesn't get the appliance drop until a day or so before closing and using cord and plug means the install won't require another trip from the EC

Appliance installs are extra.Around here the place where they purchase them from always installs. But for the Home owner builder we install all as part of the deal up front.

Well can you legally make a drop cord?Even one for job site use.....liability should anything ever happen.I see them all the time 12/2 to house but what if someone gets shocked and has accident man wouldn`t the lawyers eat that up? Who made it.

In-Sink-Erator makes a Disposal cord meeting the requirements of 422.16(B)(1), but I've yet to see a cord available that meets the requirements of 422.16(B)(2).
As a hedge, I installed a receptacle in the sink compartment(I will buy or build a cord), and purchased a "breaker-lock" for the CB.

It's mostly switches under the sink around here for DW. The exception is the few like Bosch that has a cord. A few places require the DW switch at counter top hight. For disposals it's allways 3/8 greenfield.

We put a 1900 box (4x4) under the sink with extension rings thru the cabnet. Then we run the wips to that an put on what ever garven is needed.

Has anyone out there seen AHJ's accepting the ON/OFF switch on the DW for the "Disconnect" means? Or do most AHJ's want the lockable/or plug & cord?
