Single Gang Box
These worked great for adding new outlets for a renovation. They were easy to install, easy to wire, and attached to wood studs perfectly.

A box I can screw! I wish I had this years ago! Mounts easy, and solid! Covers most house wiring needs. Carlon makes great boxes for any specific application. But I often run out of the models I use most, forcing a mis-fit or a trip to the store. Also, I have never been good with nails. Air-nailers and screw-guns have spoiled my aim. The feature I LOVE is the screw fixtures. Ordinary drywall screws into the interior or the breakaway flange will set the box tight and right. I have often run an extra screw inside the box but this was not Code-Legal (sharp screw-heads in wire zone). This box has screwholes with recesses and is fully Approved for screw-mounting. I'm a wizz with a screwgun. I also love the way this one model adapts to New or Old Work. I'm renovating an old house, a mix of new and old work. Normally I would need several boxes of boxes for the different situations. This one box will do 90% of my project; just one case to lug around. The Carlon B125AB New/Old-Work box can be nailed to bare stud (before drywall) as a New-Work box. And when you can't swing a hammer, you can screw it. The side-tab sets the box perfectly for drywall. Bring your wires in, done! For Old Work: Find the side of a stud. Mark your hole and cut-out. Break-off the box breakaway side-tab and remove nails. Bring your wires in. Slide box into hole and run drywall screws into the handy internal screw-holes. Done! Internal wiring is easy: this box is nearly as deep as a stud! There's ample space inside a wall for easy maintainable wiring, this box gives you the most you can get in a single-wide. While a Big Contractor can afford to stock every just-right box size, us small-job workers are better-off carrying just one model box as big as can be. 20 cents more depth is a lot cheaper than a too-small box and a failed inspection. A small feature: when your client or tile-contractor says the boxes have to move, un-screwing is less violent than prying nails out. Some of the small low-price blue-boxes are a little flexible. These are quite stiff and should not twist out of square when you install devices. One thing this box won't do easily: mounting away from any framing. You still need a few of those back-clamp boxes for when the client demands a box in the middle of a stud-bay. I have one mild complaint about my (early production) sample. The cable clamp is very hard to open up even with a fat screwdriver. The break-aways don't clear and the clamp finger gets deformed. I think Home Depot should stock a LOT of these boxes in the front of the electrical aisle, sold individually or by the 24-case. They really are a better product than most of the special-purpose boxes now offered.

Wow, I have landed these boxes off and on for years, as of lately, most of the boxes have felt, succinctly "CHEAP". Well, these boxes have some weight to them, do not flex, and even the anchor nails appear to be "Galvanized, Zinc coated or something". They actually sit vertical when placed on the wall, the break away tabs are well executed. Hard to believe, or get excited about a simple Gang Box, but I am impressed. These probably cost more, but well, well worth the extra chump change. I strongly recommend these boxes, by this company. Plus made in Los Estados Unidos. I was only expecting one box, I know my buddies will be happy now.

Just an outstanding new electrical single gang box, wish I had then forty years ago, can think of a lot of jobs where they would have been perfect. Love the ways they come all on one box not a bunch of different ones to carry on truck for use when you need them. Can use in the way most are used the nail on, then for limited space where nail on is not the box you need the attach to front of the stud. the for that adding a box inn an existing wall use screws and as you can see in picture can mount in normal horizontal or where you need the box laying down are screw holes in the bottom of the box.

This is a very useful box that has multiple mounting options - nailing, front mounting flaps and screw mounting from within. In my application it was for old work, but I had access from the back as the wall on the other side was not finished. I was able to use the conveniently located nails for mounting the box from the backside. I had to mount two boxes on the same wall. For the first one, I used the interior screw mounting option and for the other one, I used the nailing option. If you use the screw mounting option, the wall on the back side normally will prevent the box from moving when you install the mounting screws. The box tends to move back if the wall is open on the back side. You could always nail or screw piece of wood to the studs on the back side to keep it from moving. The box is very deep and will just fit within the dry wall if properly installed.

Not a True Old Work Box
Even if you are using it as an old work box it is required to be installed into a stud. This is different from true Old work boxes that can be attached anywhere on drywall. While installing in studs is overall better it is not as versatile.

      Great Box!
      I prefer using these whether it's new or old construction since they are more secure with the angled screw-in option. Most of the time I'm doing old work and I prefer to attach a box to a stud whenever feasible so I prefer using these for that reason.
