Why do I need to lock my meter box?

Your meter box holds several electrical components including the meter, main switch, fuses, and circuit breakers, which control the flow of electricity into your home. For safety reasons it is recommended that all meter boxes be fully secure.

Horizon Power recommends you buy approved Western Australian Services (WAS) locks from licensed hardware stores, security suppliers, and locksmiths.
