Customer Questions & Answers

Can i replace the screws with longer ones to grab onto tile and drywall?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Egonzaez
Yes. But to get a little more room remove the tab, turn it over, and reinstall it

What wall thickness can this "old work box" handle? i.e. from the tabs to the ears.

This is not in the specifications or noticeable on the image/
Asked by: Sparkman
I've used them with 1/2" wallboard over plaster and lath—though I had to remove and reverse the ears to gain enough clearance.

Can this box be used for a vanity light?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: David
It will do anything that a behind the wall box would do. Depending on the size and shape of the fixture, though, a round version of the box might be necessary to keep it from showing,

Can this be used on wood paneling in an older mobile home?

Can this be used on wood paneling in an older mobile home?
Asked by: wayne
The main issue would be the depth of your wall thickness. The box is 2-3/4 inches deep and can accommodate a wall thickness of 3/4 inch. In addition, we suggest you check the references in the NEC for approved installation methods - final acceptance would be up to local electrical inspector.

1-Gang 14 cu. in. Old Work Box is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 Star Review Rating provided by a verified purchaser

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful product I purchased this to add an extra outlet in the existing drywall. The box was relatively easy to install and is very sturdy. It seems as solid as a box that is nailed into the studs. I doubt that the drywall would rip out when yanking a plug out. This product saved me a LOT of trouble! I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install outlet box I love using these boxes where I have to install a new outlet in drywall in a place where I know I won't have a stud to screw it to. The little wings seen behind the two corner screws, lie flat against the outlet box during installation and then turn out 90 degrees and pull in to hold the box in the wall when you tighten the two screws. Ingenious design!
