Default Milbank 400A additional tap

Any reason why I can’t use a Burndy Hylug ring terminal on these bolts for a third tap?

One set of conductors going to the house, one set going to a detached garage, need a third for yet another set of conductors going to another detached shop.

All the 4 banger chair lugs have 2-6 bolt hole patterns.

I've done it, can't see a good reason not to as long as bending radius is maintained and there's plenty of thread left for the nut to bite onto.

I dont see any issue with using three hole lugs or four hole lugs at all.

I done that once a while like that. as long you have room in the meter socket ya should be fine.

Well, with a decent washer I think it would be pretty secure, but maybe the ring terminals are a better idea if you can get it all to lay down in there.

Honestly you may want to look at those lugs closely as they may be rated for 2 conductors.
