I have a box outside my house that contains the electric meter. It sits on a large plastic conduit coming from the ground, and has a large cable going into the house through the wall. It was attached to the house for support by means of a wooden frame. Screws go into the frame from the inside of the box. front view, side view
The box has a little place where it is locked by the electric company; not really a lock but just a numbered tag that must be cut to be removed. I called them and they removed it. I dropped the front of the box off today and it had what looked like an open hot terminal inside. Not wanting to become a fried lawn ornament I closed it back up again and decided to call a pro.
What pro do I call? Do I need an electrician to screw four wood screws into the frame? Is this a safe DIY if I just avoid the hot part? Putting a screwdriver in there seems a little risky. I could easily short the whole thing or become a 185 lb. ground fault.
