Two round meter box covers that are similar in diameter may appear to be exactly the same. It is a common mistake made when ordering replacement covers.
However, round meter box covers are unique in that two covers may appear to be the same size, however their exact measurements will vary slightly. Variations can include, but are not limited to differences in diameter, thickness or how the cover sits on or in the meter box.
Nicor’s Read-Rite® round covers are also available in several locking styles, including worm gear, spring lock or hinge lock. When ordering a replacement cover, check the lock style on your existing lid. Or inspect the box in which the cover fits for the right locking style.
At Nicor, we understand the many variations of round meter box covers; we can work directly with your utility or installation company to ensure the right fit.
