Answer: 
NYC is a metal market, therefore, these would not be code for your area. You should verify with an electrician in your area to confirm.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Avoid This Brand (if it is the one I bought at my local Home Depot) Until I bought these boxes, I thought all such boxes were alike. NO! I run a 40 year old 40 unit motel that needs a minimum of 3 extra outlets in every room. I've bought most of mine before this at either the local Ace Hardware or Do It Best hardware and have never had a problem. But to use these I must hold the wing still while screwing the wing "closed" and then unscrewing it before inserting it into my hole. Otherwise the wing will just warp and twist and the screw head strips and I throw it away and grab another one. But I live an hour away from my home depot and will put up with this nonsense rather than return with nearly 60 of these boxes. YIKES! July 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Some challenges This “old work box” can be a handy, affordable solution when you need to quickly install a switch, outlet or thermostat in an existing wall. There are a few challenges the buyer should be aware of. I found the cut out accuracy is very important when using this type box. Recently when my cut out was a little tight and I tighten down on the two diagonally opposing plastic tabs to achieve a secure, firm fit the box warped so it is was no longer flush. I have also had trouble with the plastic tabs braking when over tightened. After I enlarged the cut out the box installed correctly and securely. September 1, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unacceptable Quality They've cheapened it. The screws that operate the wings are not threaded into the wing far enough, making them almost impossible to use. If enough pressure is placed against the screw to keep the screwdriver from slipping, the stops at the front edge of the box collapse and the box disappears into the wall. To use it you have to run the screws in, first, to cut threads, while holding the box in your hand, an almost impossible job. This box used to work. Now a standard box, used with Madison bars is faster and easier. They saved a fraction of a cent and cost me several dollars worth of time if I try to use it. Not cost effective October 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great old work box The best old work box you can buy. Would recommend. April 11, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by limited use It’s a nice idea to mount a gang box without access to a wall stud. The plastic box seems to be strong enough but I would only use this for a switch only. I would not use it for an outlet. If you have a tight plug and depending on the thickness of the sheet rock you can damage the sheet rock and pull the box out of the wall. March 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great product for electrical DIY I am a DIY and love to do a lot of modifications in my house. As for electrical modification, this Carlon 1-Gang 14 cu. in. Old Work Non-Metallic Switch and Outlet Box is very helpful. February 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great box Great box, lots of room, easy and intuitive to install, although note that if you're in Illinois, apparently it's not code to use these plastic boxes. October 20, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Need to Use Lubricant on the Screws I've used this box successfully over the years for many projects. However the recent boxes I purchase were very difficult to install. The screws for securing the box are extremely tight. It is impossible to screws them all the way in without stripping the heads since they thread into overly tight holes in the plastic tabs. I finally manage to get these to work by spraying some teflon lubricant on the screws. May 15, 2015
