Can the 5th jaw be removed from a meter socket in MP or EZM equipment?

Issue:
Application

Product Line:
Metering

Environment:
Metering

Cause:
Utility Company issue

Resolution:
Although it does not interfere with a 4 jaw meter being installed in a 5 jaw socket, if the 5th jaw is not required for the applicable voltage system and the utility company is refusing to install the 4 jaw meter with the 5th jaw installed, the 5th jaw can be removed. Also remove the white insulated wire that connects the 5th jaw to the neutral buss bar.
