This photo has a bunch of bad stuff,: 1. It looks to be feed by romex over the wall surface. 2. Not only is the cover the wrong orientation, it is the wrong type. It should be a constant use type that covers the cord set also. 3. The romex is not secured very well around the corner of the wall. 4. I will give the person one thing it appears to be a GFIC outlet!!!!
I'm not sure if that was Romex or UF, it was wrong eitherway so I didn't take notice. Everytime I see a situation like this with the cover in the wrong orientation I wonder about the attitude or competancy of it's installer.
I don't know if there was a box under this, I didn't look, but the cover doesn't look to be attached to it.
