Terminating a raceway


Senior Member
I have a 6-3 UF cable in a PVC conduit running in to a garage. It will be difficult to complete the run of the conduit to the panel. Can I just secure the cable to framing and use putty to close off the conduit?

Apparently yes. That was the conclusion in a thread about pretty much the same thing a couple of weeks ago questioning the practice used in a This Old House episode.

We usually only do something like that if the UF cable is high enough above grade to prevent possible future damage.
