Combustibles in handy box.

Any combustible material, such as plastic compounds, can contribute to a potential fire. The electrical codes eliminate such materials, so if a fire does start because a wire has loosened and the wire heats, there is no excuse to tell the insurance company.

Remove the plastic from all surfaces inside the box after shutting off the power. There are flat rubber-like gaskets available from hardware and electrical suppliers that fit under the face-plate to seal the box.
