Improper wiring methods noted at (location description). This may be a fire and shock hazard. Recommend correction by a licensed electrician.

The immediate problem is the open box. The rope light was probably not installed per manufacturer instructions but the cord itself is listed for wet locations if used as instructed. (usually cord and plug connected). Zip cord is legal as permanently installed “fixture wire”, you see swag kits on luminaires all the time, it just can’t be concealed in walls.


With the proper connector on a box cover this installation might actually be “hold your nose” legal. It depends on the manufacturer instructions.


There are plenty of inspectors who are unhappy with the way rope light is marketed and listed. U/L has changed the listing to only accept most rope light as a complete assembly but there are still kits floating around in the supply chain. Of course the way it was marketed, homeowners are expanding it’s use.
