1.485" diameter outlet

I have a Box where it's currently being used as a splice from indoor-outdoor pipework on the outside of my house.

It's a 2 Gang with a blank cover.

I wanted to utilize it as well for a outlet.

I found a 2 gang box cover / that has covers for 1 1/2 *1.485* diameter outlets to be exact.

I quick measure of a 20 or 30 amp Locking Outlet in my stash show's it's about a hair larger than 1/2" in diameter.

Can you guys advise why type/style of Outlets is this cover meant for ?

Their description indicates it "reduces callbacks". Well, only if you don't forget to get the right receptacles. Anyway, you can't use this cover in an exposed area. You will need a code compliant bubble cover, so you may as well use regular receptacles and a bubble cover.

Chandler -

Interesting Blurb on Exposed Covers - Bubble Cover......


I have also been looking at Locking Recetacles- Flanged with the large Port/ Flip Cover for a Generator Feed. Now, MOST of these are similar to traditional flip covers with the exception of some really $$$$ Marine Grade Ones.

I can see Hubell offers a nice 120/240 50 Amp with a Angled Down unit.
I don't see one similar in a 120/240 30 angled version.

Most *generator kits* seem to just offer one that is flip lid...
I myself have been looking for something that is not $$$ Marine Grade but a but more weather resistant.

Back to your comment....which one do you guys recommend or use when the INLET is exposed and not inside a detached shed, etc.

Check out the Reliance PBN30 inlet. The flap cover is on the bottom.

You're bringing up "inlet", now, and used "outlet" in the OP, so there is a difference. The Reliance PCboss referred to is a good one.

The OP was re: outlets for the linked outlet cover in the OP.

When you mentioned the water resistent/weather resistent issue, I took it OT as I was indeed looking at boxes for a INLET for a generator as well...

Different applications but for all intents and purposes, in the Exposed Elements.
