Well, I don't see where a pilot bit from a hole saw anywhere. The strut looks ancored to concrete, so the notch in the strut may have no effect if there are more than two holding it up...

That's so any excess electrons can run away from leaking out the outlet!

Quite a few years ago, I was involved in replacing a 4160 outdoor switchgear that had about a dozen knife switches. When you opened a switch, you absolutely had to look in the window because sometimes not all of the blades were disconnected.

4160 = 2400 to ground.

I was doing some work on a grade school fire alarm system years ago. I looked down from my ladder at the plugmold strip that was feeding all the computers in the library. I had to do a double take on it because it was fed from a receptacle with a cord with male cord caps on both ends. I told the maintenance guy to remove it, and showed him some partsd he could use to fix it. I couldn't help imagining kids finding this, and cattle prodding each other with it. If the wrong kid found it, we are talking lawsuit.
