I was wondering if by chance someone knows where I can get my hands on a 4 gang weather proof gfi cover. I have tried looking everywhere and you guys are my last hope.
Thanks for any help.

I don't think I've ever even seen one of those.

It looks like a 3 gang is the most. What is the situation?

The guys cut a 4 gang switch bank in outside the house for some trellis and pool lighting. Now its time to trim it and we can't find a four gang cover. I really wish they had cut in 2 2 gangs. I inherited this little mess. everything i have seen has all been 3 gang max. I just thought somebody might know of someone who has them.

I guess I could just weld 2 2 gangs together
:-)

i never see a 4 gang weatherproof box cover at all i did check few sources and no one ever make like that unless it is requested a comstiom [ specal ] made which i belive the cost will be outragous if they do make it.

But honestally most biggest one i ran into is 3 gang verison the max but never the 4 at all

Merci, Marc


Pas de problme,il marche n'est-ce pas?"(No problem, it works doesn't it?)

I had a similar problem some time back; let me tell you what my solution was- it just might work for you!

I bought a "raintight" gutter. Inside I mounted a number of regular metal boxes, and mounted receptacles on them with 'industrial' covers. In the bottom of the gutter I made holes large enough for the plugs to enter, and lined them with snap-in bushings.

I'll see if I can get Bill to post a pic here.

Thanks for the info everybody. I decided to go with the four gang wp switch cover as a compromise. Our purchasing guy wanted to know how I found it and I told him the ECN came through once again.
Thanks a million
