I don't understand what the section on the right side of the box (as shown in the photo) is for. I'm also unclear what the 4 tabs with screw holes are for and how a switch plate is supposed to attach.
Asked by: RussG
It gives you an enclose shallow box with area for the wires. This allows for GFI installation since you can utilize the depth by routing the wires off to the side.

Trace out the switch plate opening cut the hole. You should wire this box outside the wall then slide the enclosed sides into the wall and is hidden. Use a tape measure to determine the LxW of the box faceplan opening which you will cut out.

1-Gang 17 cu. in. Shallow Old Work PVC Electrical Box is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The only answer I was in a real bind working with only an inch and a half between a drywall finish and a masonry wall behind it. This is the only thing I could find that would give me the space I needed while still being shallow. You only cut the hole big enough for a regular work box and this slides in and rotates into place. Plus, it has the drywall anchors built in so you don't have to try and hit a stud from the side which is awesome. Great engineering!

The only reason I bought it was I couldn't use a 4" deep box and my local Home Depot didn't have any other boxes I could use. I occasionally will wire up and install outlets into old work boxes before putting them into the wall to save my old back and knees. In this case, I was installing a new outlet at the back of a very narrow broom closet. Because of the where the screw for the bottom swing clamp was located, I had to trim off part of the bottom mounting flange, even after removing the plaster ears, so I could access the bottom swing clamp screw after the outlet was installed. I also had trouble getting the box to sit flat in the opening. I've installed dozens of old work boxes in my life and never had this much trouble installing them as I did with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for shallow walls These boxes are excellent for outlets that are needed in shallow walls. I've used several in the past. They were easy to install and worked great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great box but... This box works great if your drywall is 1/2" thick. My drywall is 3/4" thick and when fully installed, it sat too deep in the wall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from this thing does NOT care about my feelings. Shallow? Oh yes. This thing only cares about material goods, and looks. Good thing it's functional, too. It's able to push important issues to the side like so many shoppers on Black Friday.
