Hello!

Here are 2 photos of outdoor electrical setups in Quebec City, Canada. I am on vacation here and spotted these 2 horrible installations. I thought you guys might get a kick out of them.

Best regards,
William Boucher

in the last pic; At least they mounted the power strip face down, so the water will drain out of it :p

That looks like what you also see at any typical campground in the US. To refer to their work as a "Handyman special" would actually be a compliment.

I've always wondered how this stuff goes on, I mean there must be fire marshals or electrical inspectors who visit these places even as regular citizens. Even in their off-time, you would think that they would follow up when they got back to work. I understand that inspectors don't have the same enforcement authority as police officers, but come on. Even a novice can tell that this stuff is a major hazard.

Thank goodness that they don't sell rocket propellant at home centers. YET.

The second picture is strictly temporary. After 90 days it is "of course" removed. smile

The yellow extension cord in the first picture was obviously installed by a sailor. A power boater would never use a knot like that...

Cheers,

A plug installed with armored cable, never seen that before.


I have a sense of adventure, I just keep it leashed with common sense.
