Some sort of a box to house it all in I used a standard carlon wall box for mine. This is a 2 gang, to mount the controller and the outlet.
A two gang wall plate as a cover
A power tool replacement cord, which will provide the plug to power and a few feet of extra wire to wire everything up.
Some assorted wire nuts and a screw clamp connector.
I also added a split ring rubber grommet (like we use for airlock seals on buckets) to seal the box where the temp probe comes off.
And one of the many wiring diagrams for it on this forum.
Mines a little more "hard core" it's meant to run two heat belts, two fans and still have two accessory outlets to plug stuff into....
