This meter serves a high end real estate office, right next to a main road (well.... as 'main' as they get here [Linked Image] ) note the new ko seal here which i just popped in.

Foolish things been like that for years and i was just tired of it....I didn't ask, I wasn't told & no one noticed me as i just walked up and popped it in, a stitch in time so to speak....

Any other lone rangers out there?

Steve, good job. I put a cover back on a hand hole on a 480 v parking lot light one time on my own time.

It was laying on the ground next to the pole in a hospital parking lot close to where I had parked with my burnt hands, (another story) the screws were laying in the cover.

About two weeks ago i pulled around the back side of a store and saw a control box dangling off the wall being held by the conduit. I stopped and put in the proper size screws and mounted it back to the wall. Dont ask me why.

I've done little things like this a few times.

Who knows, just tightening a plate or replacing a cover might help prevent an accident. But I know what you mean about glancing around first. I guess these good deeds still have a certain "getting caught" element about them! [Linked Image]

Mostly because nobody outside the trades would belive you were doing a good thing and not trying to hurt some one or destroy property, sad but true.

Not to mention that if you were caught doing something like installing a KO seal, in today's society you might find yourself sued for anything that goes wrong with the electrical system for the rest of the life of the building.... [Linked Image]
