Creative use of electrical boxes

March 11th, 2015 No comments

I was recently in Columbus, Ohio teaching a couple classes for a conference for OBOA and COCOA.  One of the attendees sent me a photograph of a magnetic door closer which I wanted to share with everyone.  He told me that the contractor did not have the extender rods so drilled his own holes in electrical boxes and stacked them up in an effort to make the wall magnet reach the door!  During the inspection, the door closer pulled the box out of its foam ‘mounting’.

It never ceases to amaze me that supposedly professional contractors would do something like this.  What horror stories do you have?  Submit them and I will post the best ones.  Photographs are always welcome.Door closer
