Grant Richards is a certified IT/telecommunications contractor and course instructor with the Limited Energy Apprenticeship Program at Oregon’s Clackamas Community College. He sent us these captioned cabling photos that may make you say, “Hmmmmm,” writing, “As a low-volt contractor and apprenticeship instructor, I’ve come across a lot of ugly situations. Here are a few. I took all of these on job sites.”

Thanks Grant!
