Default Splice Inside Tenon Pipe - Exterior Pole Mount LED Fixture

Hi Everyone, we are working on a project where it would be ideal to splice, wire nut, wrap with electrical tape and tuck into the 2 3/8" tenon pipe mount that the LED fixture is mounted on to (slipfitter). Since this is not an open-air connection, is this acceptable? Thoughts? Thanks!

It is done a lot that way. As long as you can get to the splice by removing the fixture I do not see anything wrong. But that is only my opinion. Now if there is a four way Bullhorn and the splice is under the bullhorn, then that is another story.

Thanks - this splice is happening right at the slipfitter/tenon mount. Is there any specific code we can reference?

Be careful when reinstalling the fixture. We have trouble with the wire getting caught between the top of the pipe and the lip of the slip fit titting.

We have very tough inspectors here but they allow us to have a butt splice inside of a nipple if we are raising AC disconnects on re-roofs or no problem inside of a pole like your case.
I would do it.
