OK... so how will you (did you) reject the install? 110.3(B)?Never ever thought to do this
I try very hard NOT to drop the 110.3(B) violation as it seems like a weak stretch sometimes.OK... so how will you (did you) reject the install? 110.3(B)?
Are you armed?How would you have dealt with it? 110.3(B) ??
FWIW, I think you handled it well. I'm really not sure what, other than 110.3(B), would apply.I try very hard NOT to drop the 110.3(B) violation as it seems like a weak stretch sometimes.
I took the picture first, then asked the foreman if it was installed as a joke ?
I asked him how a duplex receptacle can be installed without putting undue stress on the conductors, damaging the conductors, or damaging the device when it hits up against the emt connector ?
Then I questioned the method of mounting the 4 11/16 plaster ring to the concrete wall using 1 screw , over a single gang mud box. I asked him if he thought the ring was designed to be used in that fashion ?
He had no issues with removing it and having it installed correctly. He had a guy working on it by the time I left the site.
I have a good working relationship with the General Foreman, the project Manager and the crew leaders on this project.
How would you have dealt with it? 110.3(B) ??

point, termination point, or pull point, unless otherwise
permitted in 300.15(A) through (L).
Thats the kicker- there is a box in the concrete behind that ring. If you look closely you can see a conduit going down.300.15 would be the rule
I see it now.... We'll it isn't legit but if the ring is bonded and the box also then it would probably last forever but I believe 300.12 would be the violationThats the kicker- there is a box in the concrete behind that ring. If you look closely you can see a conduit going down.
