One of the best parts of my job is that I get to see new and innovative uses for ordinary house hold items in the electrical trade.......like this from a recent trip to California....If the lugs are a little loose on the bus....this'll hold them!:blink:

Honestly, it is there to hold the tape in place....but still......

so they added quad lugs to the breaker then found out they are too close together the fix is to add tape and zip ties

here back in November i was getting a finger stitched up
and while i was in the waiting room
an old fellow was brought in with a broken leg
you guessed it splints made with 1 by 3 boards secured with 4 large zip-ties
done at home by his family
doc said it was a smart way to do it as long as they aren't too tight

I've taped up the stock terminals on some xformers, used the appropriate colored tape . I figure they exist low to the ground , so the heat/moisture is a prob w/terminations. And then there's always the dude who wants to take the cover(s) off live.....

If that's the only thing preventing a short against that door, that's hack as hell.

Just leave the door open............then it can never short against it.:thumbsup:
