Do bread ties holding the box to the support make the octagon 50 pound rated? Found this today on a light box within 12" of the attic access. Yes, those bread ties WERE the only thing holding the box to the support.

Not quite as interesting, but last week I pulled 9 ceiling fans out of a laundromat that were attached to metal boxes with braces resting on the drop ceiling tiles. They had been up there since the early 80s and shockingly not one had fallen.

What part of 314.27(A)(2) (other than the HB commentary) does this violate?
