Little question.
Do these boxes come with the knock-outs already removed from them?.
Just wondering, because there are 3 on the side of that box and only 2 are being "used", why the extra hole?.
Has to be good for spreading smoke and heat.
People should be shot for doing this sort of thing. [Linked Image]

Trumpy, it kind of depends on who was wrunning the punch press that day whether the hole is plugged or not, and how @#$%^& hard it is to get out the KO

How come they're called knockouts anyway?

All of them ever I've seen knock in.
