Was putting a circuit in an electrical panel, and tried to get the
smallest knock-out out, but of course the largest (2"?) came out. So now
what do I do? Go get a 2" connector for a single wire or is there a
device that can close off this huge hole?
I did this and just laid the knockout back in and secured it with a
couple dabs of epoxy.
Ackshooly, pretty dumb, from several pov's.
I guess you ""forgot"" about 2x1/2" donuts, eh?
I have pushed knock outs back in by turning a knock out punch backwards
so the flat sides are able to press the KO back in and it seems to be
just a stout as the original state. It works best for a KO that has
only been pushed slightly out.
*You can buy a knockout seal to close the 2" knockout and then use another
knockout in the panel. You could also buy a pair of reducing washers
2"x1/2" to use that opening for your connector.
Are you sure that is a 2" (Trade size) opening? Usually 2" concentric
knockouts only go down to 1" or sometimes 3/4", but every manufacturer is
