old meter base and 100 amp breaker shutoff


I need to replace my meter base- the dimensions are 15 inch wide 10 inch tall and 4 inches deep. the housing is in two sections- the meter base is on the left side- the 100 amp breaker is on the right side and the wires route from the breaker into the house to the main panel. the problem I have is that the clip on the bottom is stripped and can not be tightened. Any suggestions on where to find a replacement? I can't locate anything on line.

Sounds like you have an all in one combo. If the socket needs to be replaced you probably need the whole unit.

No DIY should be messing with the meter base.
If fact most places require a permit.
