Environment

  • EH2500 series enclosures
  • Nut Glands

Cause

The glands are being either over tightened or not installed tight enough. They give a feel of over tightening or being hard to turn. It has been seen where they are tightened all the way flush on the outside and this is incorrect.

Resolution

The glands are to be hand tightened and then tightened about a 1/4 turn with a wrench for final tightening. The inside part should be flush or slightly over flush to the back plate. they should not be tightened all the way. Please see the two pictures showing the correct installation.
