This is nothing unusual or anything special that you guys see in the field every day, but it still make me cringe every time I find one of these gems at my office. Note the phone jack was a dedicated fax line moved to the other wall by a "professional" my company hired to do the job after refusing my services. I ended up moving a fax machine some time after to a different location and having a dedicated cable tonned out for it and punching it to the block.
The 66 block shows how two lines were connected by the fire alarm monitoring company. The issue was that every so on once in a while one or even both lines would not sync with the monitoring company to make sure there is a constant connection, the test were ran everyday testing one line one day and the second line the next day. When I finally got fed up with it, I repunched the lines on the block without stripping the insulation off first or using a screwdriver to secure the wires.

How are those 3rd column wires able to stay secure when they're being fed from the wrong side of the block?

I rolled my eyes once I noticed the jack in the bottom picture was wired using only the rings while the tips were wrapped.

This room was posted a while back. Tenant moved out, left the phone system, and I wanted it. They finally got someone to rent the space so I ended up with the phone system. The new tenant's vendor removed it, I did not do any work.

Here's one I don't think I posted before. Note the use of PVC pipe as a sleeve, wire shelving, shelf brackets but no shelf, and D-rings to mount a UPS.

The third pic of a jack is an extension of the jack in pics one and two, which shows wires are twisted together, all is missing wire nuts to make it look good.

For Cepega's jack pictures, the installer could have soldered the wires to the extension. That would have been a sight to see. laugh

They used the wrong color code on that 2-line jack.

Line 1 = Green / Orange

Line 2 = Blue / Brown

All the whites are earth ground and need to be put into a big wirenut.

Sheeeesh...everybody knows that...

How about Blue & Green for Line #1 and Orange & Brown for Line #2? That way Line #1 will be a "modified" 568B. wink

Actually that's
Line 1 - green and brown
Line 2 - blue and orange

The kicker is only line 1 was punched at the block properly before the extension/move of the jack was done by a pro that didn't even took time to put wire nuts when extending a jack to different location.
