          Install the 2 in. Non-Metallic Sheathed Cable Clamp Connectors when joining non-metallic sheathed cables and flexible cords to steel outlet boxes or other metal enclosures. A reversible locknut breaches the protective coating on the box or enclosure to maintain ground continuity. This connector meets UL and CSA a requirements.

          Got these because I used this type before and they always work out the best. Had to return them and get 1.25" clamps.

          Have a few feet of duct in the garage of the air return duct that required insulation. this has the right R factor, cuts easy and with spray tack and foil tape for the seams works great.

          Have many places in the Supply and Return Plenums where standard size rectangular ducting was to big to fit or to small for the required flow and a place or two where space required that third sight thinking. This was easy to cut, bent and lock together.

          The Teks #8 x 1/2 in. Zinc-Plated Steel Hex-Head Self-Tapping Drill-Point Screws (280-Pack) provide secure metal to metal fastening and strong holding power without the need to pre-drill. Install with a standard screw gun and a 1/4 in. hex-drive bit (not included).

          Got this to place by the furnace as a means of cutting the power for cleaning and serving the unit. Breaker panel was relocated to the basement for the HVAC with a new sub-panel. So a safe way to ensure the power is off was this disconnect.

          How many amps does this fixture draw?

          I am trying to buy an extension cord to run three of these fixtures, and want to get one that is heavy-duty enough to safely run them with. 2 tubes @ 40W each multiplied by three fixtures equals 240 Watts, but extension cords seem to be measured in Amps as well. Checking the Lithonia site did not turn up any more detailed specs than the Home Depot site, either! Any electrical gurus out there that can answer this?

          Answer: 
          Well, unless I forgotten my math, Watts/volts=amps. One 40 watt T-12 at 120 volts = 0,33 amps times two .66 amps.
          Do the same for 32 watts T-12.
          You can find the charts or calculator's online, type in "watts to amps" or amps to volts. Most of these site will many difference calculators to do the math or list the formulas.
          That's it in a nut shell.

          Answer: 
          Yes, bleach should have no effect on the sprayer itself. In fact, you could spray anything but, corrosives type liquids that effect the tank, hose/tubing, wand and pump.

          Answer: 
          I removed all that stuff, as you remove or cut the wire off the ballast. So there's no reason they need to stay in.
