I made mine with the Leviton build-it-yourself receptacles and plugs at Home Depot. You only need a 3-wire cord, and you can make it an extension cord at the same time if you want.

As mentioned, there is no positive and negative. This is AC and both hots have 120V potential to ground, and 240V potential to each other.

With the Leviton style I used, you do not even need to install the center flat prong, which makes it 25% easier to push in and pull out of the generator.
