Threaded Rod going through furnace cabinet?

Does anyone know if this setup is allowed? New furnace installed and a threaded rod was installed through cabinet side wall to support gas line. Very sturdy, but not sure if this was in violation of some code.

Apparently, the gas connector going through the cabinet is allowed per NFPA 54, as long as it is protected. Rubber grommet has been installed (picture taken before grommet installation).

Any help or advice appreciated regarding the threaded rod, as i could not find anything myself and I have never seen this before.

Yes its code. The gas pipe must be supported. Its common practice to secure to boiler or water heater....

As far as the flex line??? It may be code ( dont know ) but thats plain lazy. If it is code I sure would not do it.

I would not accept it in my home.

Possibly you can tell me where this is in the gas and fuel code? I would like to see it.

Here in NJ I am pretty sure that's not allowed... I say this because I have never done it....

Thanks for your help, I wasn't sure if supporting anything with the furnace cabinet was allowed.

Regarding the connector, section 9.6.1 (8) of nfpa 54.
