Clarification of product features

The cover of the NEMA Type 1 enclosures with a catalog number prefix of FA, J, JD, KA, LA, LD, MA, QO, Q2 or QOM is attached to the enclosure with cover mounting screws. The circuit breaker handle is accessible through an opening in the cover. The cover cannot be padlocked since it is not of a hinged design. For an application requiring a padlockable cover, consider using a NEMA Type 3R, 12 or 12K enclosure.
