I am just curious how most of you go about connecting the xo of a typical transformer. As for myself I have always replaced the XO single lug with a double. I then carry the ground, unspliced, through one side of the lug and then straight to a lug on the casing. Of course the other side of the lug is for the "neutral" connection. Just curious if anyone here relies on the grounding straps provided with the transformer. Heated discussion on the site.
