    Default Device Rigged to Fan Cord

    This device was rigged to the cord of an old attic fan. Might it be some kind of thermostat?

    Looks like a temperature probe found on an aquastat which is commonly used on boilers or heating systems. Note the male thread which would screw into a threaded port thus immersing the probe into liquid. Strange use here. Perhaps using it to sense attic temperature to operate an attic fan?

    Or a pipe bomb

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    What ever it is the electrical connection would be required to be in an approved junction box with a cover.
