    2" Knockout, 3 MC cables

    I have a 2" knockout in the back of a main panel. I have three 12/2 MC cables coming into the main panel through the knockout. How do I secure them to the panel? Normally I use something like this:

    But in this case I have three MC cables.

    Thanks!

    Unless the connector is listed for 3 MC cables, you can not do it.

    How about doing a nipple through the 2" and install a 6x6 Jbox behind the panel. Then install the (3) MC cables into the 6x6 j box?

      It would be easier to make smaller KO's by using reducers or simply cutting your own KO's. You can get double mc cable connecotors that us a 1/2 in KO.

          I would have done that but don't have space to cut additional KOs.

            Use a 2" ko blank and punch three 1/2" holes in it.

              You mean use 2" KO seal and punch (3) 1/2" holes in it??

                You call it a seal, I call it a blank, same thing. But yes that is what I meant.

                  Never thought about it. That is a good idea.

                    Will probably have to use snap-in connectors, as spacing the holes just right to get locknuts on will be difficult, if not impossible.
                    I will have achieved my life's goal if I die with a smile on my face.
