Might want to add something like this to your toolkit:
MOLEX/WOODHEAD 1760 Receptacle Tension Tester

(Not an endorsement. I've never actually used a tension tester. Available cheaper elsewhere.)

For that receptacle that's had a vacuum cleaner or floor polisher plugged into it every night for the last 30 years  :P And now it's yours.

I've been using one of those 3-light testers for correct polarity etc. Gets the job done and was included with the multimeters I bought along with a NCVT. Gotta love Klein Tools.

Juggling all that stuff is a pain and it would be slick to just have a single thing that does it all. I think the load testers mentioned above are a great solution to my issue. I can put them on a 5ft cord and I won't even have to crawl on my knees.

I'm still giggling about this Frank. Why does every floor polisher ever made have a cord that is 6" too short to get to the far corner of the room?

Shielded banana plugs are used on the parallel cords for Honda Inverter generators.  I assume they chose them because they thought it would be safe even when entergised.
