Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jack 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!

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.

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Saachin Saved a lot of time
We put in the single gang boxes , they had to be installed below the dry wall to affixed to the stud. Considered getting a deeper box and re installing, but this was a much convenient and better method.
5 stars for including screws.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by foothill 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by SharaV Just what I needed!
I recently put wainscoting in the dining room and had several outlets that were too recessed for the cover plate. One of the boxes (we live in a 1940's home) was not as deep as the other but a quick snip of the backing allowed us to customize the depth. We tried the small plastic clips that you put on the screw but they let the outlet shift when we unplugged things and needed constant adjusting. After finding this product I will never use them again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jmcc Perfect for the job
I needed these after installing a tile backsplash in my kitchen. I was surprised to learn that this is actually a 2-pack, and extended screws are included in the package. The extender itself is sort of a flimsy plastic, though this actually makes it very easy to trim with a tin snip and is still sturdy enough for its application.
Overall I'm very pleased with this product, and it fit my needs perfectly.
