    That's just crazy. They must not stock the average kind or something. Just get one somewhere else.

    Or the nice RV style ones that Travis mentioned for just a little more.

    Or less depending.

    These work really well for the end of a cord as they have a clamp type strain relief and a metal back for that purpose. With a cord plugged in the cables go in opposite directions so they lay flat. But you can't be throwing them around as the housing is plastic and will break, if abused.
    Or one of these.

    Yeah, I didn't even think of Amazon. I've had issues about shipping policies with some of their sellers. You really can't get much from amazon up here. Ebay shipping was a killer too. Not to mention brokerage fees, duty and taxes on top of that. Sad to say but even buying online nowadays makes me want to buy local.

    On the handle issue, I'm not a big fan. Probably because I've had to use the welder in a few tight spaces and needed every inch of clearance possible. Brought it over to my neighbour's and had to pull a stove and still could barely fit the connector. I'm sure if it's going to stay in your shop forever that's not going to be an issue.

    Go with whatever makes you comfortable it's not really a big issue as long as you can strike an arc, IMHO.
