Pros, In Use Covers?

I know in use covers are required for 120 volt receptacles outside but what about receptacles such as a 6-50? Do they even make an in use cover for a 4x4 box? Are there WR 6-50 receptacles? This question came to mind when answering http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...ric-meter.html.

I don't know if there are any WP covers for such. Note, the nomenclature is WR, which means it should be in an enclosure that is weather proof, or at least kept from the weather somewhat. It is a good point, however.

Yes.... the HUBBELL HBL9420 is a WP cover for a 6-50R receptacle in a single gang box.
I'm not aware of an "in use" cover for that receptacle.
