If the ground is pre-wired why is there a ground lug that needs wired in addition to the standard ground?

Yes but the GFI outlets may need to ne upgraded. You will have a tight fit connecting the 10 Gauge wire to the outlet if you do not change outlets. I used 12 gauge wire and the fit behind the screw terminals was tight.

How difficult would it be to pry the cover open at the hinge?

Asked by Caroline November 19, 2019

Answers

In my opinion, it would take a very deliberate action and a considerable amount of force to pull the hinged door from this product. There is no comparison between this product and the plastic in-use covers. And it is also eaiser to wire and install than the metal in-use covers. I told one of my customers, who has had a lot of plastic in-use covers broken in a park, "Kick the plastic cover and break the door, kick the power outlet box cover and break your foot".

Yes that will work but I would recommend not sharing the neutral wire.

I bought this for my above ground pool. I did not like the pump cord stretched across my lawn and patio. I installed the box on the pool pump cover that I build. It worked great. The cover is deep enough for the ground fault connector from the pump. I use the second outlet for my pool light and outdoor speaker system. This one box has everything you need and most of all room on the inside.

This is an excellent choice for an outside AC waterproof outlet. Only problem I had was the difficulty in removing the knockout for 1/2" conduit fitting. The 1/2" knockout is in the center of a 3/4" & 1" knockout. There are 3 tabs connecting it to the 3/4" knockout. Having only 2 tabs on it would have made it easier to remove. Also one of the side knockouts was not closed tightly, you could see light through it. I placed a piece of waterproof tape over both unused side knockouts on the inside of the box. I might put some silicone over the outside also.

Heavy Duty Outlets are weatherproof when in use
Top-of-the-line GFCI 20A tamper-resistant outlets and box, for outdoor use. It comes with minimal parts. You will need some additional electrical parts and wiring. The ground wires are pre-wired only with a ground lug block. It will be easy if you are familiar with electrical wiring as the instructions are minimal. There are a limited number of wiring hole plugs on the back, but 4 of the sides have knockouts. There is no way to back wire the outlet, and there are no pigtails, so you will need to wire the side lugs in the traditional way. I upgraded an outdoor single gang electrical outlet to this double-gang (4 outlets) GFCI Outlet. It works great. Be sure to caulk and seal the back of the box, and the top and sides of the box against the wall, once installed to be sure it is water-tight. In my case, it was a freestanding box, so I had to caulk all holes/penetrations in the back of the box, as it is primarily designed to be wall-mounted. Web site needs a lot more pictures. So I provided some.

Pretty good box, but not watertight
First, let's set the record straight, this product in not made in the USA. It is made in Mexico as stated on the box. The GFCI outlets are made in China. The parent company of Western Electric is GE. Second, I do have some issues with the terminology used in the descriptions as "waterproof" or "weather resistant". The GFCI outlet has a label indicating it must be used n a "waterproof enclosure" with gaskets and caulking sealants. This enclosure has neither. In fact, with the cover fully lifted, any rain falling will be "funneled" inside the box and directly onto the GFCI units. That is a concern to me as it can disable a GFCI, resulting in it not protecting the circuit. The design of some other brands enclosures do not allow the cover to be lifted as far, and thus are less liable to this happening. I suggest placing a small self-adhesive rubber "foot" to the cover in a position to block fully opening it. See the attached photos. The enclosure does come with the ground wires to the outlets pre-installed, so that is good. Just remember to skip the steps in the procedure about adding them. The rest of the wiring is simple, but it is very important to correctly connect the hot wiring side to the line terminals indicated. Connecting them to the load side terminals will result in power to the outlets, but no GFCI protection. Tip: Every complaint GFCI module must provide a supplementary protection mode (Grounded-Neutral protection) that disconnects the circuit power if the load side of the neutral wire is grounded. If it is grounded, some of the leakage current through the shock victim will be routed back through the GFCI, balancing out the line leakage current that is being sensed, partly defeating its purpose. To check this function do the following once after installation. Turn on the power to the GFCIs, reset them, and short together the line neutral and load neutral terminals of each unit in turn. The unit must trip and disconnect power. If not, it is defective. If for some reason the load wiring has been done incorrectly, this can also prevent a GFCI from being reset the first time. The troubleshooting procedure does not make this clear. The push button self test does not do this test. All-in-all this enclosure is a good one if you remember to close the cover.

Very High quality outdoor outlet
This is the second outdoor waterproof Receptacle box I've installed. Its very high quality with straight forward wiring. If you can put up a light fixture, fan, an indoor receptacle or switch, this is no problem to install. Its a great professional look to it also
