    Default NEC - Yoke

    The NEC uses the term "yoke" several times, but does not define it. Can ayone tell me what the NEC means when it uses this term?

    The "strap" which is part of devices (receptacle outlets, switches, etc.) and which extends out with a top and bottom with holes, and sometimes "ears" which allows the device to be secured to the box the device is installed in.

    A duplex receptacle outlet is actually two receptacle outlets on one "yoke" (on one "strap").
