    Default Disposal outlet

    Outlet under sink for disposal. Was a tad loose and didn't work right either.

    It appears like this may have been the work of a DIY'er, or a hack. I would hate to think that a reputable EC would have done something like this.

    Jack,

    You're getting picky lately, aren't you? You expect the outlet to not be loose AND work right?

    And Shannon, a county electrical inspector, expects it to have a box!

    At least it's grounded.

    But you overlooked the good points: Adjustable, accessible, mobile, easily inspectible. Geez, some inspectors are never satisfied

    Also, looks like it might be 12 AWG into the backstabs...

    ... and whoever installed that fastener pushing through for the other side might have received a BIG surprise.
