Gotta question , Does East Hampton still require the pin connectors(macadapters) on AL mains entering the home?

Not any that I've ever done. When you say East Hampton, is that Town or Village? Either way, we always use a private inspector outside of Southampton Town.
Town, they have their own inspector like Southampton.

Whats the reasoning behind requiring them?
they just don't like aluminum terminations on mechanical lugs, the last major job I did out there in the 90's required macadapters on the sweetbrair where it terminated on the mains and N lug of the panel. The inspector specifically checked for them. I have a 400 upgrade pout there coming up.

I don't know. I've done new houses all over EH, and we always use a private inspection agency. Either way, it's aluminum straight into the panels.
Things might changed since zen, I'll find out when I pull the permit.
