I plan on doing some work and having it inspected. As part of the work I will be switching some normal breakers to AFCI. Before I get started I notice my panel does not fully latch closed. The latch appears to be thin sheet metal that has snapped off.
I am wondering if this is a code violation and something I will have to fix.
If so that might really change my plans as I don't see these latches as being sold separately or meant to be replaced.
My town is on the 2011 NEC. The breaker panel is a 200A GE catalog # TM3020F
