I looked at a job today for a GC. Small job, but as always I open the panel to see what I have to work with. :eek:

The #12 MWBC is a spare. I am going to use one leg of it for the GDO circuit.

What would you do to bush that opening?

Remove that picture, cut a hole in the wall, pull the wires up out of the panel. Install correct connectors, put wires back in the panel thru connectors, insert KO seal in the large KO, put picture over the hole you cut.

It seems like you happen upon garbage installations on daily basis. That is supposed to be good for you and the company, you should be making lots of money on it. You're not supposed to find some easy hack way to fix it really cheaply.

It would be nice to know money is no issue on most of the jobs I do. But it is not.

I like the idea though. That may be cheaper than trying to fix without holes.

Hole , low voltage single cut in, blank plate. 1-1/4" KO filler.:thumbsup:

Pop out the K.O.'s right next to the hole and use 1/2 inch push in's. Should be able to get your fingers through the hole to install the push in's on the top of the panel and also snake the wire through. Don't forget to pick up the ko filler.

Raco makes button connectors that can be inserted from inside the panel.

Do What these guys said.

Cut a 4" blank down to fit over hole, put a couple of KOs in the blank, add connectors, cables and tek screw blank over hole.


Done.
Or just move the wires to the 1/2" holes and put a 1 1/4 ko seal in it. Unless I missed something.
