Big question. On my pigtail, do I use 2 hot + ground and tape off the neutral?

1 Answer 1


Correct. The 6-20 plug has no neutral. It needs no neutral.

You don't even need to use /4 flexible cord**. You can use /3, hot-hot-ground or hot-(taped white)-ground, and there won't be a neutral wire to connect.

** In flexible cord, grounds are counted in the number, unlike Romex/NM cable.
