The doors covering my two fuse boxes rattle with subwoofer notes. What can I do to silence them? What is allowable by code? I don't want to start a fire!

Thanks,
John

self adhesive foam tape? Available in lots of thicknesses at most any hardware store. Would help to see the door, but if it is one surface overlapping another, a little foam tape would go a long way. How much you use along the perimeter of the door will depend on how sloppy it is. Might just need a small piece in each corner opposite the hinges.

That's a good idea- I just don't know if that would pass code. A fire hazzard, maybe?
