I don't think this is NEC Compliant.

I was replacing a floodlight with a bigger one on my parent's house and when i popped the boxed open, i was greeted with this. Box nailed to the wall, ground wire tucked off to the side, and the wires all taped together not using wire caps or w/e. Sad thing is, this is not the first one i've found like this nor will it be the last. I think this was done by the previous owner as he liked to do most of his own electrical work.

Yikes! Lots of violations here, however using nails to mount the box is not a violation. Back in the days of using metal boxes indoors at a home, it was standard procedure to use roofing nails to mount the ceiling octagons and gang boxes in the walls. Can't say I've ever seen an outdoor box installed with nails though lol.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

The old way was to twist and solder the wires and tape them. Then came the wirenuts and then the insulated crimp connectors
