RE: Wiring outlet box

"I am pretty sure Al was not using the WPC-Z plate. Just a guess he was using a standard non metallic duplex cover plate."

I know Al did not use the WPC-Z, since he came late to experience the benefits of an Oyaide AC outlet. He replaced a special Pass & Seymour with an Oyaide SWO-GX and liked it very much.

"Looking at the WPC-Z plate mounting it would still be possible to try Al's experiment. For the test an insulator would be placed between the back side of the WPC-Z plate and the metal wall outlet box. A nylon 6/32 screw would be installed on the opposite end of the duplex equipment ground screw of the WPC-Z plate to support that end of the WPC-Z plate to the wall outlet box. I believe that would still break one end of the one pole inductor that AL spoke of in his post/s."

What kind of insulator might you have in mind? Before I would place a compliant insulation layer, which would partially decouple the structure (not something I want to do), I wouldn't want anything to get in the way of the most rigid interface structure as possible. The use of a nylon screw kills the whole recipe for me.
