Ok I tried again and the conductor screws do seem like they will hold the #14 wire, but the clamp will not. I'm not sure if it came with a spacer or not. It did come with a metal piece shaped sort of like a half circle...with that on there, tightened all the way, it still does not hold the wire securely. Do I need to buy an additional spacer or something?

Thanks!
Dave

Dave .,

Try to invert the cable clamp I know some are designed to work both way so try it as long it don't " cut " the cord.

If you can run the plug model number I should able know what the answer to it and I know some did come with optional spacer kit however some peoples what they do is wrap a couple layers of electrical tape to increase the size to get the clamp hold down good.

Merci.

Marc

Good idea Marc. Inverting the clamp or wrapping with electrical tape should do the trick.

The plug I have is the Leviton 931. Here is a link to it:
