Utilizing the kit
also improves safety in the home while using a portable generator
by eliminating the need for extension cords to be run throughout
the home. One simple connection between the generator and the
generator convenience outlet allows the generator to provide
power to all the circuits in the home; up to the capacity of
the generator. See drawing.
Remember, when a light is turned off it uses no power but with
the InterLock kit, all the lights in the home will be available
as you move from room to room.

intended to be installed by qualified electricians. The kits
are designed, manufactured, and tested by Wyle Labs are to meet
