It has been a while but I believe the service head will have mounting hols for screws. I will mount it with screws and use cable clamps for the armored cable.

I will add pole protection from the ground up with a U GUARD STEEL 2" X 10' FLANGED H-EMC-51-2X-2"X10FT shield.
Am I missing anything? Any thing else recommended?

Are the conductors ā€œSā€ rated for sunlight?

Does any body have a part number for a threaded 2" PVC Service Head? I can only find aluminum ones for sale.....that might be why my sales rep wanted to sell me a PVC threaded coupler to 2"PVC and use a non threaded PVC head.
