Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect electrical box for do-it-yourself projects! This was a blessing as I finish the electrical service to my new pole barn. I dreaded the thought of having to purchase steel outlet/switch boxes, and having to run screws or nails in them. These pre-nailed boxes were durable, easy to feed wire/romex into and deep enough to withstand whatever you can cram in there.!! :-) Very convenient, and very little effort to install. Great for new or remodeling projects! Another winner from Home Depot! March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Industry standard I'm a 16 year electrician, as well as a licensed contractor. I just had to say, don't listen to the amateur do-it-yourselfer reveiws giving bad ratings on the carlon brand plastic boxes. Anyone with any amount of electrical experience knows these are the industry standard & work just fine if you know how to swing a hammer, support the box (2,3 & 4 gangs..etc) & properly rotozip/cut out the drywall. The only compromise in quality is made by that of the installer, NOT the product! March 29, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk Cheap junk. They flex and a roto zip cuts right through them. A guide point on the roto zip doesn't help either, that thing gets hot and cuts through them also. After you replace a few of these because a sheetrocker cut though the screw hole, you'll never use them again. And don't think about using the so called heavy duty blue boxes made by the same manufacturer. They're just as easy to cut through. These cheap flimsy boxes also flex in the wall. A single gang isn't that bad but a 2 gang box pushes back into the wall when you plug something into it, breaking the plate and making your workmanship look questionable. My advice for roughing in electrical for a residential job is to go to an electrical supplier and buy the heavy duty fiberglass boxes. Allied moulded is a very good brand. April 7, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Get what you pay for with these. These boxes are very cheap, and you get what you pay for. They distort out of shape very easily. The holes where you mount the device are not threaded, and it's easy to strip them out. Rotozip bits cut through them too easily. They will work, but not recommended. April 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great i work for a living as a electrician i use these day to day. there so much better and easier to install than the metal boxes June 27, 2011
