Contact your power company and inform a representative that you will be removing and reinstalling your electric meter.
Inspect the back of the electric meter and look at the teeth behind the meter. Ensure that the teeth on the meter peter line up with the slots on the main panel. Failure to line up the teeth correctly can cause a fire risk.
Push the electric meter into the main panel until it is flush against the panel.
Place the safety collar around the electric meter and secure it with the screwdriver.
