Am I correct in stating that extension cords are not allowed to supply permanently mounted fixtures? Even if they are not buried or penetrating through the wall? I am sure the connection at the ceiling junction box is improper.
I don’t think I have ever heard of a fan that is listed for use with a swag kit, nor is the mounting method likely compliant.
The use of the swag kit into the extension cord is improper.
This is what the 2008 NEC has to say. Most improper usage falls under condition (1).
This was not a commercial property. Would there be a difference though on whether it was allowed or not?
Thanks all. I’ve got the answer I was looking for.
I see this all the time. They also ran a cord from this receptacle through the outside wall of the garage to power a fountain
From yesterday. I see this all the time
I would agree with this.
But I see Ceiling Fans with a Swag Kit here in AZ all the time, often to a Switched Outlet.
(Can’t really use Nicks made up guide as reference for anything either.)
Is it a Permanent Fixture if it is not hard wired?
