Loose fuse block? Just tape it.

It's amazing how nonchalant people can be about stuff like this. In the entry way of a 1970 condo unit, when I loosened the black tape, the 40 amp fuse block popped loose.

I suppose it could have been fixed with a pair of pliers, but I called for an electrician to do the repair, or replace.

I told the clients to install a couple of spare fuses in those empty sockets for safety.

Those spring clips are hot (energized).

Looks pretty clean for the age, though. Lots of nice copper.
