Lovin it!!

I'd say box fill calc is:

80% of the 5s, times 1.73 of the fill of the 4s....

Heck, who knows?

Yet another example of how some people will expend so much effort to do something wrong.

Even Home Depot sells 5S raised covers. [Linked Image]

Anyone can call themselves an "Electrician", but knowing how to work correctly as one, are two totally different things.
Could this be a new version of Double-Insulated equipment?.

The proper box fill for this contraption is ... take the handle end of the hammer and press on the wires; if you can get the face plate on it's correct.

Would you consider it to be unsafe?

This one is unsafe due to possibly chafing the conductors. (no bushings in KOs)
