I was watching the great fount of knowledge U tube and one electrical guy
said to always wrap the devices - switches / receptacles with tape before
mounting them in the box. My lame question is how common is this?

I know guys who have to remove that gummy crap later are not so
thrilled and I have never seen it done by a professional. I suppose
they know I might want it unwrapped so I could inspect the terminals
if it was.
