it surprises me the number of pictures like this that you see on here.

that looks like it had a cover but still very vulnerable to damage, like you see!

Those T&B plastic covers are a joke for any outlet that gets used more than once a year.. Red Dot had an aluminum one we started using at work since the T&B plastic covers seem to always end up laying in the dirt..

Bell box would probably be ok here if it was mounted to the post with " nuts & bolts...

Arlington Industries also has some very nice equipment and I see a lot of EC's around here using their stuff.
