Cables2go has a large selection of IECs.  They also have my favorite: the 1 to 4 squid.

Wow, that's disappointing. I wonder what changed since the last time I bought them. I've used literally hundreds of their IEC's over the years and I don't remember a single bad one.

Did you get in touch with the company? They're usually very responsive. At least in my experience.

I didn't. They were so cheap I chalked it up to experience..

1 Edison to 4 IECs? That IS a great product.

Tripp Lite also has a locking version (that fits any IEC inlet) that has worked out well for my A&H digital stage boxes.  The Tripp Lite stuff is not cheap, but I don't feel too bad spending extra on mission critical stuff like AC cords.

I second this, and use them as well - not only for exposed items such as stage boxes and light fixtures but in rack gear as well that’s susceptible to vibration and coming loose over time.  Like many things, you get what you pay for.  I’m currently in an “Anti-Amazon Garbage Phase” though - especially for things that directly affect system safety and reliability…

One say with time on my hands, I measured several IEC cords in my spares box.
I used a 4 terminal, 6½ digit  Ohm meter.
I was surprised that some had a lot more end-to-end resistance than their printed AWG and length suggested.

For the UK/Type G users the ones I got included in a recent Thomann order as a freebee, 1.5mm² (16AWG) flex, normally short leads are either .75mm² or 1mm²
