"Safer fishing in live panels:"
When pushing a steel fish tape into live panel, a safer way to prevent accidental short circuits is to remove the locknut where the conduit enters the panel and replace it with a female connector and cap (or a rigid coupling and threaded plug, be careful not to drop it). When you can push no further, unscrew the female connector or the threaded plug, only the tip of the fish tape will be exposed. Then replace the locknut.
