What's the cut out dimensions for this box?

Asked by: Brian
Before taking the company representative's answer for granted, please measure for yourself. Thankfully I double checked and if I'm placing the box vertically ( which I am ) the measurements are the opposite of what they quoted. So, the width should be 4" wide and the height should be 3.75" high. I'm no pro and messed this up once before a while back, so I was paranoid and used a cardboard box to test. No go! Reversed them and bingo! I know for many this is silly, but if you have poor spatial intelligence, well you probably shouldn't be doing it in the first place the smart arses will say, and they just may have a point, but if I'm correct it's rather disappointing because it's silly that we cant get precise info from the company. For some reason I am wrong, I will be happy to remove this answer or request that it be removed. Not sure if the template will scale through, but if you want you can print out and see.

I've read some places concerns about interference when running media (coax/ethernet) cables close to and on the same side of a stud as your electrical wires. This box would require the cables be run fairly close together. Has anyone experienced issues? The clean setup this box would provide wouldn't be helpful if it's at the expense of signal strength.
Asked by: askrik
I've done my own and also helped several friends mount their TVs and run power/media cables through the same space (between the same studs) in the wall and I nor any of them have noticed any signal degradation. I've had this exact setup (modified a two gang outlet before these became available) for nearly 10 years with crystal clear HDTV image. I imagine that if the outlet in this box was used to power something that has a motor (vacuum) or some other appliance-like high amperage draw, there could conceivably be some sort of interference, but using it for media components has never caused me any issues.

Are there cover plates available that would have an outlet on one side and keystone on otherside?

Example: I have looked at the manual and can't figure out what I did wrong.
Asked by: Jdfo330
Use the style of cover plate that has the rectangle rocker-style openings, then you have multiple options for the keystone side of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well, read this before using Exactly what I needed for helping a friend with an old work TV mount, power and HDMI cable run. But I am glad to have seen the other reviews so that I prepped this thing before install. The metal wings that tighten against the drywall can be problematic, bind, bend, etc. if you don't prep them properly BEFORE sliding the box into the wall. First, use some bar soap (like Dial, Irish Spring, etc.) and rub it on the screws that the wings are attached to. Then (box still not in wall yet) one at a time, hold each wing in place against the box housing with your thumb, or use locking pliers to hold it still while you use a screwdriver to carefully tighten the screw all the way down which pulls the wing forward. It will be very tight at first so be careful not to strip the screw head or bend the wing. Then loosen, tighten, loosen, tighten each screw several times so that the soap you rubbed on the screw lubricates the metal-on-metal contact between the wing and screw. Finally, loosen each screw to the original position (wings flat against box), then place the box into the wall and tighten the screws normally. Screws are then easy to tighten with the box in the wall and wings will work properly. Works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed The dual-voltage box was just what I needed to run power and video feeds for my projector. After reading the previous user's post, I used my drill to run the clamping brackets back and fourth a few times to break them in, if you will. Installed fine after that. I would use this product again if a need arises.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Screws/tabs are garbage Impossible to tighten the lousy screws -- even when the box is not in the wall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ZERO STARS Do not waste your money or time. This product is a great idea but the execution is useless. THREE IN A ROW torn up by the metal screw and metal cam. If you insist on buying it, test out the cam locking mechanism with your screwdriver BEFORE cutting into your drywall assuming the product will grip.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible execution :( The tabs are worthless. The metal is so cheap that they wrap around themselves when trying to screw them. Avoid this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ummm... There is absolutely nothing wrong with this product. It seems most of the reviews here are about the concept of cut-in boxes in general. If you have used cut-ins before, you know they can be tricky, but they work very well. This box is no exception. I almost didn't buy this product based on the reviews, but I'm glad I did. It works just as well as any other cut-in box I've used. If you know what this is, and you know how to use it, do not hesitate to buy this box if you need an old-work dual-voltage gang box.

The tabs do not open to correctly engage against the wall, instead staying closed tight against the box. Not sure who decided to go with the metal tabs but they are worthless. The box will not mount against the wall. If there is an alternative, please someone post. I have to put (6) of these in (old Work) and can find nothing.
