Well the instructions say for temporary power and the design of it keeps it from b being plugged into a wall receptacle.... I just noticed it is a Woods product and I was in a wedding, with one of the brides maids being a granddaughter of the company's founder.

Notice the selection of appliances in the illustration—strictly short-duty or low-current devices. I’ll bet that’s not by chance and was reviewed by legal council in the process. Those type of loads are probably what should get credit in limiting damage to dime-a-dozen plug strips, too.
I still love the pegboard packaging for some of these that is prominently labeled: Y2K Compliant and Internet Ready!
yes well..... the 'appliance' small print vs. the ones pictured are deceptive, in fact the large 'OUTDOOR RATED' print on the front, as oposed to the 'wet' discalimer in small print add to this ambiance.
Notice the bold print declaring it for use with only one extension cord? All I have seen in use are on the end of a 50' or 100' 12ga cord with 5 more 25'-50' cords plugged in. The device of this type I do like is made by McGill and has GFCI protection built in. It automatically de-energizes and stays locked out if it momentarily loses power and must be re-set after power is restored. Really nice if someone had a table saw going when power went out and doesn't think to turn it off before walking out to the temp to reset the CB. I've seen guys do this and send a piece of trim through a window when they reset the CB and the saw came on with wood laying on the blade. This time of year you can always find the main extension cord going out to the temp pole. It keeps the snow melted no matter how deep it is!
