    My answers are based mostly on the ICC codes. Advice given is my personal opinion and every person performing work should acquire a permit from his/her jurisdiction and get the work inspected. My opinions are not directions to follow for DIYs or professionals

    Given the way the outlet is installed, the "plug" seems reasonable, but they didn't "connect" the ground wire, which could create a hazardous situation.
