Sqaure d cover QOC40US Ser. s01 sticker?
 
The sticker on both of my 200 amp qo load centers are messed up with pen, since circuits have changed, people used pen and re labeled. I would like to redo the wiring inside the panel a little to make it cleaner, and would like to mark some circuits (about half are not labeled on one panel). Are there any sticker replacements or cover replacements, I can't find any. Any alternatives to a whole cover, sounds expensive?

You could use a little Dymo type label printer and print strips of paper to cover the old labels.

Go Office Depot and pick up some sheets of printable label paper. Print up your own and stick them over the old stuff.

Good Idea, going to get some at staples. Now to be safe, I should cover only the circuit labels, not the warnings, information, right? Or does it matter?

I'd leave the panel information uncovered, if possible. Or maybe print up a sheet detailing that too.

Its kind of alot of stuff to cover, Ill just measure up and try to print the circuits only.

The panel is a mess, they left out 4 screws, only two keeping the cover on because the spaghetti of wires pushes out the cover. I'm planning on labeling new circuits and cleaning it up. They then used romex connectors for bx without any bushings.


"They" are a bunch of licensed electricians. What crappy work they did...The worst so far was what I found (and fixed) in my crawlspace, I hate it in those! I might crawl up into my attic and take some pics of the "pro" work...
