In this episode, Russ spotted a light fixture that was supported by rigid metal conduit. The installation did not comply with Sec. 314.23(F) because it only had one clip. In addition, the installation did not meet the requirements of Sec. 344.30 for securing and supporting. The result of these violations? Watch the video and see for yourself!
