    Still one of the worst code sections that the CMP seems to think is fine the way it is. Pretty sure people have tried to clarify it but is always rejected.
    I agree, I've argued that it would require receptacles to have working clearance, by the wording of the code
    I can build anything you want if you draw a picture of it on the back of a big enough check.

    There's no substitute for hard work....but that doesn't mean I'm going to give up trying to find one.

    The way the OP describes it, the disconnects are in the required space and need to be moved.
