Questions & Answers

Will these boxes support weight of a celing fan not sure how much ceilng fans weight ?

Asked by: Todd
NO!!!! A box for a fan should be able to hold at least 50#, when I install one I test the box to hold me so that I am sure it will hold any type of fan in the industry. You don't the fan to fall when someone is under it, not a pretty sight.

If you do not recommend using a fixture with this box, what is the specific purpose of this box?

Asked by: DLdiy
When these boxes are used, the hole cut into the drywall needs to be snug and not a sloppy fit. The drywall also needs to also have its full integrity so no using it where a prior patch was done or where water damage eroded the drywall strength. They can be used in either a ceiling or wall, however, your fixture cannot exceed 6LBS per Manufacturer and U.L. listings. Marking the inside of the box with a permanent indelible label "6LBS Max" is also done to prevent problems in the future if the fixture is changed out for another.

Would a 4" hole saw make installing this easier?

Would a 4" hole saw make installing this easier?
Asked by: J2D
A hole saw is an option, but please note the following dimensions of the box. The box requires a hole around 3.48 in. for the box to fit in. The OD of the box is 4.38 in. across the top.

can this box be mounted wit the outside ring near flush to wooden ceiling and held in place by screws. I need to mount a light weight LED light fixture.
Asked by: jack
Yes, the ring is designed to be flush with the wall/ceiling surface as long as there’s space for the depth of the box, and if the wall/ceiling material is roughly 3/4 to 1/2 of an inch thick.

Customer Reviews

1-Gang 18 cu. in. Round Old Work Ceiling Box is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great: 2 recommendations Worked great for sconces. I have 2 recommendations to users: #1 don't drill the 3x 1/2" holes 120 degrees apart, as the template describes. I did this for the first light and the 1/2" holes were very close to being visible around the base of my sconce. For the next 3 I cut the 4" hole with a hole saw, only, and didn't cut the 3x 1/2" holes. The old work box fit just fine (it was snug, but I actually preferred this). Recommendation #2: Tighten and loosen the 'ear-screws' once PRIOR to installation. Reason - the threads in the plastic ears are not pre-cut. I had issues with the ears/screws becoming cocked in a strange position behind the wall and would not tighten. This was because the screws were trying to cut the threads for the first time. If you pre tighten the screws (and then loosen them to the original position) before installation, it will make tightening and installing once in place very easy. I can tell you from experience that it is very frustrating having to remove the box from the wall because 1 ear became snagged/cocked and won't tighten. Once I learned from the first box and corrected the issues, the last 3 boxes were a breeze!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to add light weight lighting to existing structure! I purchased three of these to hang some light weight simple pendant lights above our dining table. These are made for old construction. These normally come with a paper template shoved inside the box but this time there were none so I went on Carlon website and downloaded the template. I know I could get by without but I like the fact the template has points where you drill a 1/2" hole in 3 areas prior to cutting to compensate the extra space needed for the wings. It also ensures you don't end up with a larger hole than needed. After hole is cut you slide it up in place and with a philips screwdriver to tighten all 3 screws so the wings tighten to your substrate.
