Good Electrical Box for 2 x 3 Lumber
Quality :
4
Value :

My house was built in the mid 1970s, and some of the wall framing lumber in the basement is 2x3 (not 2x4). I wanted to find a modern electrical box that fits within the smaller 2x3 lumber, yet still has enough room for wires. This box fits and has plenty of room for 1 or 2 circuits. Just make sure you install at least 1/2" thick drywall as the final wall covering...so the box doesn't stand proud of the final wall. And make sure to install an insulated staple to secure your wires within 12" of the box, because this is a new work box...so it has knock-outs...not the integrated clamps.

Not behind drywall
I do not recommend using these on wooden studs behind drywall installations. I had three of them installed and all three led to the drywall gypsum breaking over the tab of this outlet box. The tab is maybe an 1/8" thick at most, but it was enough to pop the drywall. Stick with the side nailers for drywall applications.

The side flap is not strong enough to support the rest of the box. When a cord is plugged in or pulled out, there is too much strain on the mounting flap. I will need to reinforce in some other way.
