I was an active electrician for over 25 years before retiring in September 06. In my travels, I have seen many code violations and electrical hazards in the crawlspaces and attics of my customer’s homes, as we all have. I just recently found yet another unusual electrical hazard but this time it was in my own home. Please see photos in attachment displaying my daughter’s pocket book collection. This hazard was easily corrected and her display was kept in tact by doing a little carpentry as seen in last photo.

Best regards,
Greg H.(SmartBox Guy)

A very nice job on correcting this situation! \:\)

I wonder what the derating factor, per pocket book, is for floor standing luminares? \:\)

Or you could've just beefed up the light by building a nice strut rack ..
