Steel/stainless clad 5-15 with cord clamp, no longer made?

The supply house still has some steel 6-15s and a few others on the shelf, but they told me they were unable to source more 5-15s.

Alternatively, I can sub any small. lightweight plug with a UV and impact-resistant body.

I would *not* like something like this:

Nick, fill us in on what you don't like about the plug you pictured. Curious.

The UL standard may have changed and does not allow a conductive shell.

The plug shown is a nice device.

Check Tractor Supply.

What don't you like about Hubbell plugs? Those things run my life.

Since it is Nick asking I suspect that he is wanting the look of the old over the functionality of the new.

I think I have seen some of the old plugs at my nearby old-time REAL hardware store but I am not certain. Might also check the electrical departments of department stores and the like. Don't overlook Wally*World.
