That, Uh, That Doesn't Look Up To Code: How Not To Wire A Garage Door Opener

March 14, 2011


This is a video of a guy showing off the unorthodox wiring job for a garage door opener at a house for sale in Everett, Washington. I don't want to ruin it for you, but it doesn't look up to code. Like, anybody's definition of code. This wouldn't even fly in my neighborhood and I once saw a guy down the street try to plug an extension cord INTO HIS OWN @$$HOLE. No lie -- he was honestly surprised when the Christmas lights didn't come on.

Hit the jump for the 'you had plenty of time to realize this was a bad idea'.


Thanks to Thaylor, who would've just run straight into his neighbor's electrical box like a normal damn person.
