It took me a few minutes to figure out what was done here.

It appears that they wanted to 'tap off' an existing receptacle in the brick wall to serve something else, such as a sprinkler timer. Hence the "Bell" extension ring and the PVC.

Then I guess they figured there was no need to either bring the receptacle out fron the wall, or use any kind of cover plate.

Gotta love the fact they left the tag on the cord:

"Warning: Extension cords can be hazardous."


Stupid should be painful.

Put a lil' duct tape around that thing and you're good to go.
