    I'm thinking the installer worked for booze and was paid in advance

    "Aw'cmon man". I got no heat, can't you just cut the lock off the meter? I'll square it with the gas company tomorrow.

    There's actually a company named ACI in my neck of the woods.

    And is that black mold on the wall in the 3rd pic?!

    The sad part is that when I would complain to our heating inspector about this kind of install, he would tell me, "I don't grade workmanship".

    what gets me is that they could've used the one board at the bottom of that high dollar gas pipe mount and cut it in half to get 2 single boards to hold it up because evidently unistrut is just out of the question.
    "only 2 tools any man needs is wd40 and duct tape. if it moves and it shouldn't use the duct tape. if it doesn't move and should, use the wd40" -unknown
