Now for part two. Clearly the fibre db at the corner of my yard is missing this lid. Maybe the installers dropped it by mistake and just couldnt we bothered trying to fetch it.

Does it matter? Is my fibre install incomplete? Perhaps more at risk of breaking a splice during a storm? What is the function of this lid?

Nothing duct tape can't fix.

It is not a lid but an internal part essential to the proper coiling up of the fibre tails. hence if they did not replace it, they just stuffed the fibre tails into the box, which means they are vulnerable to breaking. It also means that when they work on that DB, they can cause numerous faults..

They should all be hung, drawn and quartered after being forced to eat broken pieces of optic fibre cores.

I truly have uncapped fibre then!

I guess thats what you call a high fibre diet.

Google Lens didn't identify it. But I've tried it out on all kinds of things. Wow!

Yeah I tried tineye and google reverse image search on the photo as well as a close up of the HH logo - nothing.

Tip if you want access google reverse image search from your phone, go to google.com, click images, then change your browser to desktop version (or view). Click the camera button at the end of the search bar.
