A lug of this type is not permitted to be used for more than one equipment grounding conductor!

ONLY KIDDING ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

I would also point out that there is a violation of 250.148(A) the stud that they have put the lug under is part of the cabinet mounting hardware.

The fastener for the lug should serve no other purpose.

Good call, I was waiting for this answer too.


Pont to be taken:

We should all understand that a lug cannot be secured to the cabinet or box with the same screw. This is illegal.

That lug or termination is often identified by engraving, or by a threaded "raised" portion in the enclosure, that is what is meant my "means provided" ---

I have heard it argued that if the stud was long enough for 2 nuts you could fasten the panelboard with one nut and add a lug with a second nut. I am not sure I agree but I do see the logic.
