What kind of cable? Armored?

I am installing under cabinet lighting. The light is about 8 inches from the wall where the electrical wire exits the wall. i.e. there is about 12 inches of wire showing. Does the wire need to be armored?

This is a gray area. Wire needs to be protected from damage. This is an inspector's call. Some might not like it, others will be okay with it.

Consider either a small piece of 1/2 inch conduit to cover the cable, or perhaps using wood strips on the side of the cable as protection.
