Fitting for outdoor outlet box mounted on wall
 
So I have one of the cast outdoor surface mount boxes for an outdoor outlet where the wire will pass through the back to the inside. The inspector said it is missing a fitting. What type of fitting am I supposed to use for this?

Does it have the wire-clamp fitting so that you cannot pull the wire out from inside the house?

I am going to "assume" the wiring method is romex. If so, use a "romex" connector. If the wiring method is something else, match the connector the wiring method.

Normally a NM clamp is used without the locknut. It gets threaded into the box. Apply caulk to seal the hole.
