What is that used for and what is the violation? I'm new to the field, so I've never seen that.

Looks like the back plate from a Wiremold device, and the second pic shows the nicks in the sheath and black conductor...

Plus that bushing is not properly installed/is damaged, and too many wires through the hole...

Yada Yada.... [Linked Image]

There aren't many little details that irritate me more than discovering UF used in place of NM-B. With old, brittle UF, simply stripping the wire can turn into a whole drawn-out undertaking of very carefully "chipping" away insulation. Gah!
