              A:  This box is clearly defined 2.75 inches deep in the description. You’ll not find a box that will recess in to an “1/8”” inch wall to house any electrical device legally. A receptacle I’m confident measures more than 1/8” thick. You’ll have to surface mount a suitable box on that size wall.

                  Updating my 1940's home with these
                  I decided to update some of my outlets and light switches. These old work Carlon boxes were the boxes I decided on. I had to use these because my old home has 1/2 drywall" with about 5/8" plaster on top. The ability to position the fasteners at the length/ depth needed was a simple but genius solution. My only complaint is the amount of wire push throughs. I don't think 4 is entirely necessary. It makes installing a smart outlet or a outlet with built-in surge protection harder as it reduces the amount of space for the wire. All in all I like the piece.

                    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
