If you don"t have actually the essential to the lock you most likely are going to break it, that is, if you do not call the poco to have them rerelocate it.Which is what I would recommend.:whistling2:
to readjust the meter box. replacing an old 100 amp service to a 200 amp. i have to rearea up to the weather head. and also those locks dont have actually keys

I"m assuming you"re doing this without inspection? Either that or you don"t desire to wait for poco to come out and unlock?

Are you talking about the tag that looks prefer a tiny lock? If so, usage your ***** to pull up on the wire, it will certainly slide out a bit. Cut it as low as feasible, once you put the brand-new meter pan up you can reinsert that wire and also it will certainly go much sufficient inside to stay tright here and look kosher.

I recognize this has actually been talked about before. But waiting for the POCO is not the answer. Last panel adjust I did, had it erected for Monday to have POCO unlock the meter, they confirmed up Thursday. This was after plenty of calls to their office. Glad I had a patient customer. Does anyone recognize wright here you have the right to obtain the key? I understand about utilizing a dremel tool, or grinder.Here"s a videohttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4-ewjHmGwc

I know the feeling. You have the right to be charged for the ring though. A grinder functions but you deserve to use a sawzall if you had to.

So much I have actually never been charged for one. Demerals occupational finest. Trouble via Sawalls its tough not to bang the blade against package or meter. The last speak to I made to them I thrconsumed to reduced it. Lady told me tright here "might" be a fee, I told her tbelow was going to be a fee from me if they don"t acquire out there.

Well, in most places it IS the answer. The golden state is (thankfully) not the rest of the country. In many places rerelocating the meter without approval/authorization is NOT a good point to perform. And ruining a barrel lock ring is also worse. I reaize So Cal sucks, but that does not suppose eextremely area is.To Mark, your answer is wait for the POCO, or obtain on an apconfirmed list (if they have actually one) to remove and also rearea the meter yourself legally.I absolutely realize that periodically you have to execute what you have to carry out, but an easy panel/company change is not an emergency and also no reason to circumvent the rules.BTW, that video is a joke. The man is a f-ing hack. Who removes a meter under load and video tapes himself doing it. Sure, he supplied gloves and tested it....after that, but come on. What nation is that from anyway? Oh yeah, I forobtained. California. Are those tricks OK to have in So Cal? I suspect not.
