I've never come across a condulet with 4 hubs before! It can't be a "T"... is it an "X"? I'd think if you used all of those you'd be a bit over your pipe fill (as it looks like its either ½ or ¾ inch.. I've seen some funky things like this on old condulets that have the cover mounting holes diagonal instead of the standard ones common today..
I wonder if theres an insulating bushing or "red head" in that MC Cable....

There is a valve handle visible in the lower edge of the picture so the plumber's strap may actually be holding up pipe. Does anybody know the Listing on foil duct tape? It looks a little rasty but I rather find something like that than many of the more exciting things I've seen.

Unfortunately, the reality is that many churches operate on a shoestring budget and scary cash flow. The preacher knows that expensive repairs could mean he doesn't get paid that week. This creates a strong motivation to use the good-old-boy network. He calls somebody who knows somebody and, as long as it works by Sunday, cost is the only object. Carpenters and brick layers are much more plentiful than electricians and plumbers so you know who does most of the repairs.

Oh, boy! I'm going this morning to connect temporary construction power for a new church project we just got. It's right in the middle of downtown Los Angeles.
I had forgotten about all of the "volunteer help" that worked on the last church job I did. They hung all their own drywall (with a sheet of 5/8 and 2-1/2" screws, they were able to make a real mess of our cabling). They got their own fixture package, with counts wrong, types wrong, and no lamps (a "deal" from a parishoner) They made what should have been a 3 month job last for a year...S
