Saw a memo from XCEL energy that they have removed Eaton lever bypass meter sockets from their approved list and will refuse to install meters in them after March 1, 2014. No details given on the problem.
The problem was some of the spot welds were coming apart and someone nearly got injured from it. They said they're going to be sending out a memo about it. I use Milbank

Possibly, but more than likely the decision makers at Xcel got a kickback from Milbank.
Wrong. Just was at a meeting on Wednesday and they told us about the problem. Supposedly and electrician out west was operating the lever bypass and it came loose resulting in an arc of some kind. Once the problem is corrected, it will probably be approved again. Who uses Eaton sockets anyway? I supposed Lowe's, Menerds, and Home Cheapo sell them.
