Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs improvement While the box is very well constructed and easily strong enough to support the 10lb rating, the bracket is an engineering fail. The bracket does not spread out as it is pulled towards the box so the wings slip back down beside the box and right against the edge of the hole; far too easily in my opinion. Also, the wings are too long and sharp so you can easily tighten (even by hand) the screws and cut them through wallboard, or at least far enough to break the paper-backing which is essentially the same thing when you add 10lbs of weight in the fixture. The top of the metal bracket should have been just a little narrower so it spread the wings out and away from the box as it was pulled towards the box and the wings should be significantly shorter so the bracket is pulled tight to the box long before the wings have a chance to fully penetrate the wallboard. Even having the break away adjustable length wings would have been better. Also, the box should be stamped with the required diameter of the hole saw, which is 3.5". I have not found this to be documented anywhere. All in all, not a bad box, but be wary of likely installation failure due to the shortcomings of the design. January 28, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs improvement This cut-in box provides too small a trim flange to be useful in many remodel situations, as the "lip" is just too narrow to accommodate anything other than a perfectly-cut opening. Many homeowners don't have a complete hole saw kit to allow them an appropriate choice. I used this in a Hardyplank installation, with an appropriately-sized hole saw, but of course the hole turned out almost too large for the box, due to the nature of the material. This one needs to be improved upon a little before I would recommend it. April 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Flange to small Sturdy box, but as a remodeling box, to replace an existing box, the flange is to small. For new construction it might work fine. I wanted the conventional winged typed box but oddly it wasn't being sold at the H.D. store I was shopping at. December 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FINALLY!! I have been looking for these all over the valley because I had bought some for a remodel project a few years ago and loved them. The only ones I could find locally were not the same and didn't work for what we were trying to do. I knew they were out there somewhere so I started an internet search and found them many places for a price I didn't want to pay. When I saw them on the Home Depot site I was thrilled with both the item and the price. They have a little less depth than I thought they would, but they are going to work perfect!! Good, strong constuction. October 23, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous scone support outlet box. This is a fantastic outlet box for sconces in residential work. Second to none on the market! November 4, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by One problem with the design When the box is pushed into a 3 1/2" cutout, unlike the old work rectangle box which has collapsible ears, this model has to be dismantled in order to remove the box. Make sure everything is in order before pushing this home. Once installed it's very sturdy. May 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Made well Not one of those cheaply made boxes- very sturdy. Took a while to get it but was in no hurry. December 28, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product I used this on an exterior flood light that I discovered had no electrical box behind it when it went out. It worked perfectly even when I had to go through stucco and plywood to make the hole. June 17, 2013
