Can this box be used with conduit?

Asked by Polley June 30, 2020

Answers

Not unless you drill a hole to fit, but then it might not meet code. I'd use a metal box with knockouts to match the size of the conduit.

Can this be used in a commercial environment in TN?

Answers

The short answer is yes, but I've heard of some areas not allowing old work plastic boxes to be used in a commercial setting which makes no sense. You can contact the electrical inspector in your jurisdiction for a 100% answer. I have used them with no problems.

As shown in the picture of this box, the part sticking up at the top of the box is an ear that pulls in against your cabinet wall when the screw for the ear is tightened.

Can i buy additional "ears" anywhere? I need to mount an old work box that doesnt include them.

Asked by 123 May 29, 2020

No, I believe that in order for those "ears" to work, they have to have a special hole for the screw and a recess built in to the box to allow you to slip it into the wall before you turn them to fasten.

Works as intended
We needed to retrofit a gang box in order to hang up a new light fixture. The light fixture is just under 6 pounds - so under that maximum weight suggested. However, because this was a retrofit job the light fixture didn't sit flush against the wall. It's fine and no one will notice, but it is something to note. Otherwise, it is offered at a great price and works to serve our needs.

Great product, easy to install. This single gang box attaches securely to the wall. There is plenty of room to add a Z-Wave (or similar sized) receptacle with one or two 14/2 Romex/NMD90 cables. I've installed a couple of these now and will be replacing some existing metal device boxes with them to facilitate a more robust Z-Wave mesh network.

Some challenges

This “old work box” can be a handy, affordable solution when you need to quickly install a switch, outlet or thermostat in an existing wall. There are a few challenges the buyer should be aware of. I found the cut out accuracy is very important when using this type box. Recently when my cut out was a little tight and I tighten down on the two diagonally opposing plastic tabs to achieve a secure, firm fit the box warped so it is was no longer flush. I have also had trouble with the plastic tabs braking when over tightened. After I enlarged the cut out the box installed correctly and securely.

Unacceptable Quality
They've cheapened it. The screws that operate the wings are not threaded into the wing far enough, making them almost impossible to use. If enough pressure is placed against the screw to keep the screwdriver from slipping, the stops at the front edge of the box collapse and the box disappears into the wall. To use it you have to run the screws in, first, to cut threads, while holding the box in your hand, an almost impossible job. This box used to work. Now a standard box, used with Madison bars is faster and easier. They saved a fraction of a cent and cost me several dollars worth of time if I try to use it. Not cost effective
