How to fix a meter box door?


First of all, the first step is to remove the actual broken meter box door by depressing the brass spring pin.

The second step is to fit the new purchased door by holding it upright and placing the steel pin into the pre-drilled hole at the bottom of the meter box.

Next, you need to position the brass spring pin under the pre-drilled hole at the top of the box, releasing the spring pin allowing it to slot into place.

The last step is to close the door as usual. This door has a slam shut lock (SSL) but is also possible to purchase a turn key lock door (TKL).
