Alright, old uncle mikey is going to solve the question in this thread for you guys.

Bakalite boxes sold commonly prior to the invasion of blue boxes had little bags included when you bought a case of the boxes. The bag would have about 50 or so little metal clamps and short worthless 8-32 screws in them, which you were supposed to install over any romex you poked into the box once you broke out a cable entry bushing area. Those are what the Code book is referring to. When you add those, you have to do a deduction. I remember a few of the inspectors would always peek into boxes to make sure we were installing the crummy clamp, and no clamp no pass. Now, no one looks anymore.

And also, name me one builder or homeowner who wants you cutting such a huge knockout in the side of the cabinet to get the box thru, which is going to be the only way you can get it to work if it is indeed a sink cabinet on the left side of the dishwasher instead of having the dishwasher located left of the sink, like Bosch assumes all of them are supposed to be............

Foreign machines are a pain. Some wont even fit in our standard openings (even though the specs say they are the same) unless you seriously modify the opening.

That is the precise clamp I am referring to Dennis. So with the clip in box we are supposed to count the one we use and remove the other one we are not using would be my guess.

By the way, not all together uncommon for bakelite boxes, I believe you could get your money back on return of that one in the picture cause the screw hole where the fixture bracket screws into is broken..............
