Please elaborate on your term "sleeve". When I picture a sleeve, I picture a piece of conduit about 6"-12" long. This would be fine. If you are thinking more than 10', this may be a different story.

These installations could be anywhere from 30" to 60" usually done in unfinished basements, where a receptacle is needed, and I'm coming down from above..ie; the floor joists...and mounted on the foundation wall. I've also done it when "poking thru a floor to run a receptacle to a 4" square (1900) box

334.15(B) discusses using a raceway as a means of protection from physical damage. I think that fits your description. You should be fine.

This may be a dumb question, but what on earth is a "from-to"?

Attic Rat,

Nice to have you here.
1900's and "from-to's". You must be from the NY area.

Your description is exactly how I do it. Never even a question from an inspector.
