A: Hi StorageGuy, I didn't have any problem with the tab causing bulging under the drywall. I believe the main reason for this is that I chose to screw the boxes in as opposed to nailing them in. I found it easier and faster to install them this way. By screwing them in I was able to guarantee a very snug and secure placement ot the boxes. I did this for all my boxes. for switches and outlet placement. You may find that this cost a small amount more but it really is an easier and faster way to mount the boxes. I hope that helps.
A: Article 314.20 of the electrical code, it is stated that boxes should be mounted flush with the finished surface of the wall, with a maximum setback of no more than 1/4 inch. If you only have a few. rip some 1/8" paneling an shim the box out. I suggest talking to your local building department for you area. You can also check with the manufacturer.
A: Use a 5/8 plywood block as a depth gauge and break off the mounting ears and use the nails to mount to the side of the stud.
A: No I think you have to cut that off for deeper application
A: Hi SushiBreath, well being a real electrician you dont remove the wire insulation until it is in the box then you can use a knife to do a soft cut in the insulation sideways (not length ways) the pull on the insulation and remove the outer cover. But you are wanting to remove the insulation first then stuff into the box. The tabs are not to be removed they hold the wire in the box and help keep critters out of the box. Real electricians dont remove the tabs as they are required by code and if you have a fire etc and a good inspectors sees that the removal of tabs had anything to do with fire they dont pay and selling the house if this comes up you could be in trouble. And if much easier to pull 14/2 in the box if you do it the correct way. I have wired 1000's of houses and I and most other electricians do it the correct way.
A: They are designed to keep the wires from pulling out of the box and exposing the bare wires. They are very tight and generally I loosen them up a bit with a screwdriver, but don't remove them. It defeats the design.
