Most of the old work boxes have tabs that spin around and clamp the box to the sheet rock. These don't. Thanks!

Answer: 
I have used battleships aka madison bars. Steel City Model # 820D1U-25R (search HD site). Always wrap tape around sides of the device to cover terminal screws so not to make contact with the metal. I have also used some strips of wood as a backer with screws. Plywood works best (wont split) For thin walls the Carlon Model # B117RSWR (search HD site) may work for you.

Answer: 
I bought another Carlon Old Work box with the tabs. I then used the tabs from that box on this box. Just put one tab in the upper left corner and another tab on the lower right corner.
The resulting box is solidly mounted.

Answer: 
These boxes are designed for a more substantial material than sheet rock to attach them. You could try placing small wooden blocks above and below the box behind the mounting tabs and sheet rock then simple screw through the sheet rock into the blocks. Use suitable wood and screws as the small blocks may tend to split when screwed into. Hope this helps.

Answer: 
Any single gang blank device plate will work. A good selection is in store. Use plastic, not metal plate.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by REPAIRS CAMPER / RV OUTLET IN THIN WALL The outdoor 120V receptacle went bad on my camper. I looked for days for those self contained devices (box and device in one) with no results. What I found was crazy money or out of stock, and they are cheap junk anyway! This worked well with a regular duplex outlet and weatherproof cover. I used a multitool on siding. I chose #4 flathead sheet metal screws to mount to aluminium siding. Better results for less than those other things cost.(if you can find them) April 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Box worked great! I needed this for an outlet built into the side of a drawer cabinet. Regular size box was too big and the drawer would hit so this box is great. Unfortunately the box is so small there's not much room for wires so it needs to be at the end of the circuit. March 10, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Need a 2-Gang Shallow Box!!! This was the perfect depth for my exterior walls in my 50's style Florida bungalow. However, I have a need for a 2-Gang version. Florida is full of homes that would be able to use a 2-Gang box like this. Fortunately, I was able to piece two single together but at the expense of my time. Even if Carlon made a customizable box that you could adjust the depth but make a 2-Gang. I hope I suggested making a 2-Gang box enough. Thank you. February 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nobody sells the double gang same shallow shape Good value, however some of us want the shallow box as seen in the image but in a double gang version which nobody sells April 24, 2013
