I have been using their single ends for years and love them.  I wish they would make a matching male end too.

I checked their supplier. Said it was due to come out in December 2013. That was 2.5 years ago. Still not out. I'm thinking they may have changed their mind on this product??

I would still talk to them directly.  (I knew about the triple tap because that was what they told me they were working on when I called them to pester them about making a matching male end to go along with their locking female end.)  They could be held up on some UL listing or some such bureaucratic hurdle while sitting on boxes of product, or at least components.

Doesn't hurt to ask.  They aren't likely to cook you and eat you.

Off the shelf female receptacle

and 

the closest to your original request

or 

a more compact solution

what I bought

Thanks yet again, but I want a permanent tap there, not something that could fall off with any tension.

I already have everything I need to just add an electrical box to the existing lines and reel I have. I'm set and satisfied with that solution.

I am willing to bet that I could hang off the unit and it would tear the wires apart before the two would separate. 

I am that confident in the setup to say that 

There is of course just plain old twist locks that can be easily added and those are just as secure
