Re: GBlist: Receptacle Gaskets

Re gaskets,

As Frazer implies, it depends on what else the wall cavity is connected to.
 If the only connection is the outlet, the gasket will work fine.  However,
given that there is a wire connected to the outlet and this wire leads
somewhere, while traveling through holes drilled by a manic with a hole
saw, it is unlikely that the gasket will do more than redirect the air

But hey, you never know.
