Well it seems that there are a lot of regulations on these things. I think it'd be more "prudent", to quote George W, to buy what I want. Here is the closest thing I've found: http://www.ebay.com/itm/PowerCon-Rubber-Quad-Box-Power-Distribution-Twist-Lock-Distro-link-/161145073029?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2584fead85

But I'd rather use standard 12ga extension cords than Powercon cables. Is there a reason to use Powercon instead of extension cords?

The Whirlwind powercon stringers are steel boxes, and have UL approval.

Whirlwind, Lex, and Motion labs all make this stuff.  I really like the idea of the powercon quad box.  Though it is not a catalog item, Lex sells a 50' ruberized quad box for under a 150 bucks... with UL approval and proper SOOW 12/3 cable.

Canadian approval. Hydro Ontario maybe?

Sorry for not being more specific. 508a stands for UL 508a witch is the panel builder liscense that allow you to build such electrical panels.
