Answer: 
This is meant to extend an outlet or light switch box, the type of outlet (GFCI or regular) doesn't matter. So yes, you can. We installed a GFCI outlet in ours.

Electrical Box Extender is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for older outlets We installed a reclaimed wood wall and needed this to keep the outlet flush with the new wall. It fit perfectly in our older 1930's home. The outlet box we needed to fit was 1 3/4" x 2 7/8" and this slid right in. The back of it is tapered to a bit smaller so install was easy. It's a thin plastic so you could easily cut it with scissors. Definitely recommend!

Use of this product requires precise spacing of your tile around the outlet. For a first time DIY tile project for me they did not work. For someone who has more experience with tile work this product should work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works Tight fit on GFI's but will work, screw length is best compaired to other blue extender competitor that interlocks for double box. If outlet is already installed, may need to disconnect depending on wire length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job well i recently installed a mosaic backsplash in my kitchen, with the backerboard, mortar, and tile thickness it recessed the outlets over 3/4's of an inch. these box extensions were a nice universal extension that filled the void. the backs are tapered and they flex if you have interference on the sides or top of your hole. a little pricey for what they are but they do the job well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cut them with scissors to trim them however you want. They are flexible and easy to use. A bit expensive but so darn easy to use and versatile that it's worth it. They come two per pack and they include long screws.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I am by no means an expert on all things electrical, in fact I am just learning. I had installed some bead board leaving the electrical outlets recessed too deeply. I didn't know how to fix the problem until I had done some research and discovered that my self remedy was not up to code and potentially dangerous. These boxes are great and easy to install. I feel much better now knowing that I have fixed it the right way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They work, but may need to be trimmed a little. If you're a pro you might say: "well duh". If you're a "try-it-yourselfer" like me, be prepared to trim the extenders as necessary. My 1950's plastic electrical boxes have some sort of ridge inside that blocked the extenders from being inserted. I trimmed off all but the front face plate and they worked out fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did just what it was supposed to. I used this to fix a tricky outlet box that the builder had apparently installed before installing the drywall so it was 1/2 inch too far back. This fixed it perfectly.
