It appears that perhaps a bit of DIY electrical work may have been going on at this home we recently inspected.
This DIY handyman hard-wired a cord right into the power supply to make their own “instant extension cord”.
By the way, this is NOT something that you want to see at a home inspection! This is both a fire hazard and a safety risk from electrocution. And while the adults in the house may understand not to touch anything, it becomes an even bigger risk for children who may be a bit too curious for their own good where this is concerned.
