Re: [DSL] Dry loop installation: demarc box not connected?

It's quite FIRM. Because when you move it, it disconnects the inside wiring terminals. I'll see if my neighbour is in -- he's got a pretty similar looking one, and I might get a photo of it in the "open" state to help with understanding it.

5-10mins.

How to open it.

That was easy.

Hookup for house wiring.
Yup, he has the exact same model as the one you posted the photo of. To open it, push very hard to the right on the left edge of the latch, with a lifting force at the same time. It will bend slightly, move right maybe a 1/16", and then the whole thing should pop open.

Once it is open, you can see how the inside wiring is intended to be hooked up.
Photos here (by me) courtesy of my neighbour.

Install the inside wire yourself, don't waste time and money with a "firm" like xbell with an xbell van.

Oh, and you might want to call tecksavvy and tell them that the bell tech did not install a ground wire.

I agree, and I have been posting in here for years assisting people in doing their own wiring. It beats paying the BTS monkeys driving vans dressed up as Bell vans and dressed up as real Bell techs.

Thanks for the suggestion, I forwarded the picture to TS in the Direct forum, and they said it seems fine to them.

Looks like at this point my friend is just going to cancel her service, and I have to say I can't blame her, as there seems to be far to many hoops to jump through to simply get the install properly. To the demarc box or not, the install/activation should ensure that it's going to the place it's supposed to.
