Hi All, Wondering if anyone uses/has experience with Electrical Lockout kits used to lockout various circuit breaker devices. Lately I have been servicing more Nursing Homes/Rehab Centers and Laundromats where there a several people milling about. Seems like a greater potential for someone flipping a breaker back on and me not knowing about it. For residential, probably not as much of an issue, but still may be useful.

 

This afternoon I went to Home Depot and bought a "Brady Electricians Personal Lockout Kit". When I got it home and opened up the package, everything was made out of plastic/nylon. That doesn't give me much confidence. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a more robust kit?

 

Thank You! Bob

Sounds like a good idea. I would imagine those lockouts are sufficiently strong otherwise the manufacturer could be involved in many negligence/product liability suits despite any disclaimers. I only use red "danger" tape on the panel box and keep numerous voltage detectors about. However, usually nursing homes, etc have key lockable boxes or a lockable room where the box is located and I have occasionally obtained the key.

Lock out-Tag out..................I carry an aluminum L.O.T.O hasp in the service van just for the reason you are describing..........( Some body walks by, sees the panel door open, a breaker "OFF" ..............Thinks " I will help the old lady and get her T.V. back on. ...............Flips it to "ON".."...........He hears a scream from some where,....[ picture A. Bob with curly hair]..... Thinks the scream is from Bob getting his daily enema.... )........................Check out Grainger P/N's   1U177   or   4FG05 and 4FG03................Good to have in a bizzy house hold also.......................
