I saw a picture of one of those in an an older Murray- Jenson or Hydel catalogue somewhere. Never actually have ever seen one installed. Have also seen in a Leviton catalog a meter socket extension that is a "Transient Voltage Surge Surpressor". Not a bad idea IMHO. A.D

The concept of the meter socket extension is so the PoCo can read the meter. This extension was taken out of a residential garage. All the PoCo had to do was look in the window and read the meter. If the meter socket did not have the extension the PoCo could not read the meter.
