Video: Using Padlock to Secure NEMA 7 & 9 Safety Switches in OFF Position

Issue:
How does a padlock get installed in a NEMA 7 or 9 operating handle to lock the device in the OFF position ONLY, for example the H60XFA?

Product Line:
Heavy Duty Safety Switches 

Environment:
Cover Handle padlock

Cause:
Installation

Resolution:
All the NEMA 7 & 9 enclosures will accept a padlock to lock the operating handle in the OFF position ONLY. The devices CANNOT be locked in the ON position.
See the below video for installing a padlock in the OFF position ONLY.



Make sure to turn OFF ALL Power supplying the equipment and verify the power is OFF using a properly rated voltage sensing device, BEFORE working on or with electrical equipment. 

NOTE: PLEASE MAKE SURE NEVER TO WORK ON ENERGIZED EQUIPMENT.
