What is Knob and Tube wiring?
Knob and Tube or "K&T" is a wiring system that was commonly used until approximately 1950. It is still very common in homes throughout Minneapolis, Saint Paul and extends to older homes through White Bear Lake all the way to Stillwater. It gets its name from the ceramic knobs and tubes that are used to support and protect the wires.
