I want to hang the outlets from the bottom of the cabinets facing
down. Appliances would plug in pointing up. I am trying to keep the
backsplash wall from being cluttered, or cutting holes into a
stainless steel backsplash.
Is this allowed by the NEC? I guess it is possible that plugs could
pull down from plugs, but that is not really dangerous. And it could
be a problem finding the plugs without bending over to look, but once
my coffee maker is plugged in, what else is there?
IKEA sells undermount lamps with electrical outlets built-in. Those
lamps aren't hardwired into a circuit, though, so I am hedging against
When I look this issue up in Usenet, my keywords kick out the
discussions about outlets, and the position of the ground.
