Answer: 
An old work box like this one is installed with the flange on the surface of the wall. As installed any thickness cover should fit. We would need more information to provide futher assistance.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked Out Perfectly I got this wall switch and outlet box because I needed an outlet near the toilet in our master bathroom. The outlet was for a bidet toilet seat. I was fortunate to have a GFCI circuit on the opposite wall which I tapped into. 1 - I traced the area to cut out 2 - I cut it out with my Dremel tool 3 - I inserted the box (make sure to tighten screws well to secure the box) 4 - Wired up the outlet (don't forget to turn off the power) 5 - Placed a cover plate on it I love DIY projects but I always want the end result to look pro. These outlet boxes can make the end result look and function like a pro did it. October 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy install These are significantly better than the standard boxes available from this manufacturer, and much easier to install than the old way of doing it, with a metal old-work box and Madison hangers. I find myself using them a lot, as of late. September 11, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Total junk These are the "premium" versions and I bought three of them. Two of them, I found out when I got home, were missing one each of the lifting tabs that engage on the back of the wall. The remaining screw on those was jammed so that the tab could not be retracted. Of the one complete box, one of its screws jammed when I tried to retract it. Three out of three bad boxes. Not good odds at all. November 29, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good Clamps & space, quite a few broken tabs I have not used a large variety of remodel or old work boxes. I have had problems with tabs breaking off frequently with this box. I take great care not to overtighten the tabs and in some installations they break off repeatedly. I am looking for a box with better clamps. This is my only complaint with this box. There a good amount of space, better than many other boxes. The clamps work well with 14/2 14/3 & 12/3 romex. July 4, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A very good box This is a heavey duty remodel box. It has a strong internal clamp to hold several sizes of romex wire. It is deep enough to hold several incoming wires. It uses a straight sided rectangle cut-out hole that makes for an easy installation. The toogle hold down clamps are channeled to stay in the proper location for a good secure mounting. It has a stronger than normal plastic that will hold up better than a lighter weight box. November 17, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Quality I have used several of these type outlet boxes from relocating electrical switches and outlets to installing new devices, such as cable TV outlets. Easy to use and install into wall. January 24, 2012
