Default Good Deal for E-brew builds (NEMA L6-30 twist locks)

I live in Canada and when I walked into our local home improvement places I couldn't believe the cost of these plugs! And the cord that went with them.

Came across an ebay listing for the plugs plus 9 feet of cord (the same cord Kal uses on his brewery) for $17 each. http://r.ebay.com/pyrLXD free UPS shipping in the USA, too. There is a service just across the border that receives packages for Canadians, so I am taking advantage of this.

Nice deal! Thanks for the heads up! The plugs themselves are $15 on Amazon. I bought some, to move me along towards electric brewing.

Picked one up too, thanks. Now I just need my adapter from Brewers Hardware, and an element, and a controller... Ok, so I have a long way to go!

Will these work in a panel with those plugs? I've not seen this style elsewhere. Can it be safely mounted at the bottom of a panel by using the screws visible on its face?
