    Where are all of the electricians when you need one?

    Arron,

    The only thing I see is in 362.12 which would be not where subject to physical damage. I will assume that this building does not exceed 3 floors above grade.

    I can't tell you about the listing, but that does not have the requied fittings at that box. I won't even comment at the stuff going into the wall below the panel... yes I will; yuck! (technical descriptive term)

    Thumbs down Re: Smurf on the Wall?

    The methodology leaves a lot to be desired. I see the conduit without the proper fittings at the device boxes or straps to the wall. It also looks like a nail-on box was used instead of a ENT or metal junction box.

    I wonder what else is missing that we can't see?

    Of course it is right ... now, look to your left and you will see it is NOT CORRECT when looking left way.

    It's all in how you look at it.

    Yes, and it helps if you are looking from about a block away.
