I don't know about a violation, but I would have wrapped the conductor the opposite way under the screw head.

Perhaps it is a left handed screw.

Fellas,forgive me for saying this,but in my neck of the woods,I'd be tickled to see someone actually trying to comply and bond the metal box,whether it was a green screw or not,or even looped around the screw the wrong way.

That would be Article 123.ABC in the NEC. It is the common sense section for a qualified mechanic.

No really I looked and could not find anything. But it should be added to 314.40 (D)

Violation according to the NEC 2002 Handbook Article 110.14 Electrical Connections. Exhibits 110.2 and 110.3 show the proper and improper ways to terminate wires under a screw.

The NEC Handbook is far more informative and easier to understand than the Code Book.

Add uneforcable to the list as well.

I'm not saying I don't own the handbook...I have one at the office, the electronic version on both of my computers and the McGraw-Hills handbook in my home office.

When I teach, however, it is nothing but the NEC, because that is the only document that matters for enforcement and determining bare bones compliance.
