But if that cover didn’t originally have a ko on it, it’s not kosher, regardless of whether you can swing it aside. And I’ve never seen a c-body cover with a ko in it factory.

You never went on a factory tour and brought a drill with you to get the custom LB with the KO in the cover make in a factory so it has CSA or UL listing on it?

I don't have pictures, but I went on a service call that included some receptacles in the kitchen not working. The house was built around 2002 or so and all 4 of the kitchen GFI's were wired backwards.

Nope. That’s first means. Just need a socket wrench to operate it.

Throwback...
Hope no one is in a hurry to reset THOSE breakers. I guess they could not find big enough pennies.

Have seen this many times in Atlanta
Customers did not want meter on front of house so ran entrance cable through attic, then back outside and down to meter, then back in and to panel

No disconnect near where either enters house

5 minute walk this morning resulted in all these pics
