That is usually because someone may try to unplug the device, the plug for my devices will be inside of a sealed electrical box, plus exit signs aren't required in my house, so that code probably doesn't apply to my situation.

I can't find that wire at Lowes, so what category would I find this cable under?
  • Low Voltage Wire
  • Non-Metallic Wire
  • Service Entrance Cable
  • Specialty Wire & Cable
  • THHN Wire
As to my previous post, the THHN wire with the plug body would still be unsafe even in a sealed electrical box?

Now if anyone could answer my question from my few previous posts, then I could end this thread with a few more questions.

Yes, unsafe. A plug body is listed for use with a flexible cord and not with individual conductors.

If you are already going to put on an extension box then run your conduit out of the extension to another box on which you could install an exit sign. If the original box in the wall is metallic AND already bonded AND you are using EMT, IMC, or RMC conduit then the pesky green wire is not needed in the conduit run.

It would still be a code violation.

We don't allow threads to continue where the OP(yourself in this case) seem to be intent on not following code, despite the numerous the times they have been told its a code violation. By many pros in that trade.

Thread closed.
