This cord was removed by me at a Wal-Mart.

It seems a Fire inspector was not impressed with all the plug strips and rubber cords.

We added many outlets on the electronic aisles.

This cord has a 4 gang box with a plastic 4 gang plate on it.

When I got there this was just resting on a shelf behind some electronics.

When I got to the first ceiling box I found no spices, the cord passed straight through and went another 50' to an old ceiling box just resting on a ceiling tile.

I'm not sure if I'd classify that as better or worse than my local Wal Mart. They have power strip after power strip plugged together & then it all ends up running on a column recept buried in the paper towels shelf
