Our inlets are designed with high-performance and flame-resistant material and are offered in a variety of colors to match your boat.
  • Connectors: SmartPlug connectors’ unique body shape includes a sleeve design that fits snugly within the inlet, removing all tension from pins and clips, and can easily be inserted with one hand. Dual 316 stainless steel side locking levers help keep the connection tight and secure.
  • Cordsets: SmartPlug cordsets replace old, outdated twist-type shore power cords and the cables use tinned wire to minimize corrosion from the elements. Our Superflex cables combine flexibility and durability and are easy to coil even in freezing weather.
