$52.00 for a kit! Some years ago it seems that the Honda kit was in the $200 range? So building a kit was an economical solution, even the correct banana plugs could be bought or tennis balls added to household plugs to eliminate the Darwin feature.

and a link to a $30 unit.

Another snip

I built one of these using the factory Honda parallel cord and cut it in two and reconnected them at an rv 30 female plug. It works great, and is safe. I also think it cost more for me to do it than the one in this link.

SMART !

Sadly still no breaker protection. I wonder what a 40A load would do ?

I suspect it would kick both generators offline since the maximum output of both together is 33-1/3 amps.
