Question 50 amp plug prong protection

Does anyone have any suggestion besides plug the cord back into itself on how to transport and protect the power cords prongs for the times that it "drops" to the ground while your trying to coil it up for transport?

I have cable carrier straps:

but I am finding that I've seen the cord prongs hit the ground a few times and nothing worse than trying to bend a prong back due to carelessness on my part.

When I got my 15' might cord, it had a molded plastic piece that goes over the prongs.....I'm looking for something like that.........that can't get lost during camp time. I haven't seen any plug boxes that make sense.

So anyone have a tip on how to handle it? Or a product that does just that?


I just found this:

I am wondering if they make this in a 50 amp version???

No, I've never seen a 50 amp cover.
You won't be able to plug the two ends together because they're not compatible.
I too had the plastic part, I wonder where it went?
You could buy an adapter for 50 amp to 30 amp and leave it on the plug. It's probably less expensive than a 50 amp plug and may actually come in handy (although hanging a 50 amp cable from a 30 amp adaptor is destined to fail)
