6mm Earth bonding strap Found on the ground by LC008 that has recently been fitted with LED lamp. I found a 6mm x 512mm Earth bonding strap by the lamppost outside my house today. It may be a coincidence and it has come from elsewhere, but this lamp had it's sodium fitting changed for a LED one last week. It may be prudent to check the Earth bonding on this fitting. The lamppost is listed as LC008 and is outside #38 Henry Road. The strap has been coiled up just for the attached picture.

  • The light is working. The issue is whether it is adequately earthed after the recent upgrade work.
