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?

Anyone can call themselves an "Electrician", but knowing how to work correctly as one, are two totally different things.

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.

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