I was on a job recently, where I just had to smile as I approached the panel:

Yes, that working space violation - don't we wish they were all this minor- is one of those tabletop 'zen' water fountains. I guess he solved his 'harmonics' issues by bringing the phases ito 'harmony' ..... laugh


Now, I am always reassured when I know I am following behind a professional. Still, I was not sure to make of the Union labels on the cover ... one for the Painters', and one for the Plumbers' Locals:

Talk about crossing crafts laugh

Finally, our Sparky found that 4-11 covers made great filler plates:

Not pretty, but it'll do!

Is that panel with all the union stickers labeled as panel DA? Maybe a little too subtle to get a chuckle from even the giddiest among us. Gives me an idea though, I'm going to keep a look out for the perfect opportunity to label one as DOH!!! Or maybe relabel one I stumble across that really looks like Homer Simpson did it.

I've used the 4-11 (or 4") trick many times. Whenever possible, I secure them with pop rivets. When you are adding a circuit to 30-year-old equipment that might be 400A or more, and a full upgrade is not justifiable, and you just want it to pass...

This method meets Code, and is lots better than calling around to a dozen supply houses looking for this or that proprietary filler plate.

BTW, I usually secure them from the back of the deadfront. It looks better that way.
