Spotted this today:

How much you wanna bet there's no locknut inside the cabinet?




This is the URD coming from the transformer......

I've seen this many times. Every time there was a locknut. They just pull right out.

my bet says conduit contracted in winter, pull away from lock-nut inside meter can, and through years ground soil settled to the current gap you see.

LMAO, the locknut might be just sitting there, lonely, missing its mate. Doubt it though.
