Exposed electrical line in a closet


How do I safely cover an electrical line that is running down the wall within a closet? It's on the outside of the drywall.

Can you hold the wall closer to the screen so we can see it, or better yet post a picture.

Who put the wire there and what's running off it?

You basically can't 'cover' a line. You can use surface mounted conduit materials, but not for everything. The important question here is why is that line exposed in the first place. Second but no less important is what is connected to it?

What's above and below it, along with its load and a pic or three will go a long way towards getting you the answers you need!
