How to attach L14-20P to 4 wire cord

Posted by chanesworth (My Page) on

Hopefully this is a simple question. I am trying to attach my L1420P twist lock to a 12/4 cord that I bought. The twist lock has G,Y,W,X (spots) where the wires are connected. I assume that the green wire goes in the spot marked G. But, does it matter where the Black, Red, and White wires are connected in relation to the Y, W, X?
