I think that I have read that if you mount a receptacle horizontally, the grounded conductor goes on top. They theory is something might fall between the cord cap and the outlet.............like a toaster or something like that! ha

e57: Looking at it from the outside is rough enough. Can you imagine what the INSIDE must look like... [Linked Image].

Roger: I have seen a few of those around my area. Are they made to mount directly to a 1900 box?
