A: If you look in the inside of the box it tells you: 19 #12 wires but you have to know how to calculate box fill! Count each conductors in the box, all the grounds = 1, devices count as 2
A: No, wood studs only.
A: No! Nails don't go through metal studs, wood only. Metal 4 square bracket box with a mud ring will go with metal studs.
A: Obviously, you won't be able to use the nails on the metal studs, but you can run sheet metal screws on the tab side (through the holes) to secure the box. You might also pull out the nails and substitute long number #8 sheet metal screws so as to mount the box.
A: you should put some blocking in the stud space to attach that end otherwise it will not be very secure as attaching it with just the nails still ets it move around.
A: Gives you choice of one or other. I cut just enough of drywall to replace 2 gang box with 4 gang and enough of drywall to attach tab to drywall. Less patching.
A: Not 100% sure, but I am guessing another mounting option perhaps where there is not enough space on the stud cavity to swing a hammer.
A: Since this is a new work box, the assumption is the stud cavity is accessible and an additional stud or framing brace can be installed. This helps in at least 2 ways: ensures the box stays at the right depth vs. the sheetrock face on the outer side and stabilizes the box against deflection, if, for example, a receptacle is installed in the outer position.
A: It is used for support when screwed in.
A: The B344AB takes a standard 3 gang wall plate. Unfortunately we don’t make wall plates so I can’t give you specific dimensions.
