I am looking for suggestions for installing some sort of waterproof jack

my customer has multiple refrigerator with one phone in each of them occasionally they will hose these down

They remove the phones but the jack will be exposed and become unusable


The cable is coming down the wall exposed


I was looking at Home depot they have a lot of options but I didn't see anything that I thought would work

just wondering if anyone else has any Ideas


Thanks


JD

For this type of situation I always used an outdoor receptacle box and just install the phone jack instead of AC outlet.

If it was built in the last 10 years don't expect it to work right.

No solutions, just memories.We were doing the Montauk Yacht Club back in the 80s and were to put modular jacks on the pier pylons.Had heavy duty aluminum mounts with spring loaded doors that were supposed to be impervious to anything, sea gull crap ate them up in 6 months.Probably not a problem for your application.Seems like Merrits solution would be the simplest and most straightforward.

Why not suggest a weatherproof phone (aka "police call box") installed permanently in each fridge. WE model 526 or equivalent. They appear occasionally on Ebay. You can also get just the housing and put a wall jack in each one, then carry around a 2554 to be plugged in when needed.

You mean open the door AND lift the receiver? That's kind of complicated Arthur.

Gelehu -

I also worked on the Montauk Yacht Club (for UCS) back in the late '70s. We installed brass marine jacks with a twist-lock connector - as I recall.

I was out there in the dead of winter. The jacks were mounted on the pilings at every slip. They had installed the pilings upside down (Bigger side up). When the inlet froze it pulled the pilings out of the water. We had to replace the jacks on the new pilings they were putting in, We worked on a rowboat that we rowed under the docks (at low tide!) finding the cables grappling them to the surface and letting them dry out a little before we reinstalled them. In those days there was nothing doing out there in the winter - it was dead. The only place open in Montauk was a Pizza Parlor.

Teldata -

I installed PA & Intercom at national Cold Storage in Manhattan in the early '70s (late '60s?). Anyway - depending how cold the temperature gets in there you could have problems with exposed cable (we had cable that shattered!). I would suggest installing the exposed cable in aluminum conduit and the jacks in an outdoor electrical box with a hinged plastic cover that can close over a jack when the phone (with a cord coming off it) is removed.
