Junction splicing


Better, but still a long way from "right".

1) Even though you went the two-box route, you still do not have the required 6" of free conductor.

2) You need a listed connector for tying the equipment grounding conductors together.

3) It appears that you wrapped the EGC the wrong way around the screw.

I will make sure to use a wire nut on the ground, and will fix the twist on the one wire, I do see what your saying I see its twisted wrong. As for the 6" im curious why it has to be 6" and again I guess I need a tape measure and fix it.

The requirement is at least 6" total length and at least 3" past the front of the box. The length is required to give working length even after a few reworkings of the box.

Let me say that you are a rarity in just accepting and fixing Code violations on this site. Most others ignore or try to argu their way out of them.

The way I see it, if there are "Rules" they are there for a reason!
