Up to what thickness drywall can this be used on.

When the sheetrock was original installed they put together 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch drywall so my drywall is 7/8 thick. Are the screws long enough to compensate for this?

Answer: 
I think it can be used on all thicknesses of standard drywall. The retrofit clamps have fairly long screws. In your situation, I would purchase one and give it a try. That is the best way to find out for sure given your added drywall.

Answer: 
The max opening on the clamp is .95 inches. It is really designed for 3/4" drywall. It might work for your application - give it a try.

Answer: 
No. For a switch or wall outlet you need to use an approved plastic or metal box. This is for running cables, telephone lines, and the like in a wall.

Answer: 
No, these low voltage brackets cannot be used with standard (120v) items. These brackets are for use with Class 2 applications - items that are 30 volts or less. Thank you for your question.

Answer: 
Hi Fredyg80, this bracket is used for low voltage, (eg; computer, or tablet charging).
This bracket is not for use with regular or usual electricity (eg; 120 volts). Below is a link to some you can install.

Answer: 
The dimensions are the minimum size opening so that the bracket will fit into the wall and you can tighten the mounting tabs behind the sheetrock to hold in place. So, hold the bracket to the wall and with a pencil, trace a line around the circumference of the bracket. With a drywall saw, cut out the drywall. It should fit with just a little trimming where needed for a tight fit.

Answer: 
We recommend using the 4 corner holes on the bracket to mark the wall opening. This will give you the most accurate score to cut the sheet rock.

Answer: 
Not that I remember. I have installed several of these and I simply use the piece as a template. I place the unit on the wall and trace out a line around it. Then cut the drywall. Works fine if you are careful to stay true. If it doesn't fit as precise as you want you can trim away a little more drywall as needed.

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Using 5 of these this for my line level and signal level audio jacks and they work great, nice and sturdy. The 4 pin holes make it easy to place the bracket, level it, and mark where I need to cut. Only wish there was horizontal center mark on the back to make aligning it with my existing electrical outlets easier. MUCH cheaper than buying new work electrical boxes. October 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product Great product, very simple to use. I have been using these for years in my security business. August 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Great for low voltage wiring, strengthens the wall board opening for mounting the faceplate July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding Value Quick and easy to install Holds tight to the wall Good price also May 29, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very Difficult To Screw I would highly recommend purchasing a different brand of brackets. These brackets are EXTREMELY hard to screw and they did not drill the screw holes out. It's like trying to hand screw a screw through a 2 inch piece of plastic basically. Not an easy task. I mean the screw hole is there, but when they designed these, they did not make the screw hole big enough or the screws that they are using are too big for the screw holes. Someone at Home Depot didn't plan this one well at all and I have always been a big fan of Home Depot over Lowes, but perhaps Lowes has better brackets? Haven't checked there yet. March 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worked great Installation was very easy. Measured and cut the hole then placed the bracket in. The screw/bolts were a little tough to start, so I had to hold the bracket while tightening. Good product otherwise. March 29, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Well-made product Solid for use where you need to run low voltage wiring. April 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and Simple Does what it's made for. Excellent for blind installs with no access to a stud. It's about 2" deep so if you are installing on an insulated exterior wall, you may want to protect the vapor barrier with some tuck tape or similar as it will put a bit of pressure against the insulation. Sure beats just having a cable just dangling out of a hole in the wall. September 15, 2015
