Questions & Answers

Q:Can this be installed in a wall that has both 1/2" drywall and 1/2" shiplap in place?
by|Mar 22, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  It has only about 1" from the back of the plate to the end of the mounting wing track, so it might not work with 1/2" drywall and 1/2" shiplap.

    A:  Hi Mick, technically it can be removed and reinstalled if the screw threads were not damaged during initial installation.

        Q:Is it possible to add a second set of power outlets to the box?
        by|Mar 9, 2022
        5 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  No, this is not designed for any additional power receptacles. It includes a junction box which you can mount your standard receptacle into, but the other two openings are only designed for the included "ports" which are the cover pieces you feed the data cables through (or mount the inserts for connection to HDMI, RF, RCA, Binding Post type connectors). Although it wouldn't recommend it and I'm sure it would void any warranty for the product, you could probably carefully expand the cut-outs for the 2 data covers to accept an "old work" electrical box which you would have to install AFTER the recessed box is in place - you would do this just like any remodel install of an electrical box. You would only be able to use the sides of the recessed box and there would not be any room on the back of the unit because it butts up against the inside of the drywall. FYI, I believe there are other products out there that DO allow for multiple receptacle installation. Keep in mind, you need to work any recessed box through a cut-out about the size of the recessed box, so those will require the receptacle box to be added after the recessed box has been installed. Hope this helps you :)

          A:  Due to the way the gang box is attached there is no way to add an additional outlet.

          by|May 7, 2023

            A:  Yes. It doesn't come with it, but there is a hole on each side for power or cat 5 cables, etc. You can mount another power outlet there.

            by|May 11, 2023

              A:  Yep

              by|Mar 9, 2022

                A:  Yes. Unlike the stock photo, the electrical box isn?t pre-attached. You can attach it to any side. Which means you can also buy another box and attach that too. But the box isn?t stock so you might need to buy another one of these units to salvage from.

                  Be in a good mood before install - you'll need it
                  The outlet box is essentially not servicable. The outlet installs to the back of the enclosure, meaning if you ever have to replace it, this whole unit has to come out. This was in one of the reviews, but I figured that wouldn't be too hard. After the install, I knew that would become a major issue. Too many steps to undo. The wall where this is going, has foam insulation under the drywall. I had to cut this back to an angle for the outlet box to fit. The angle is needed because otherwise the box won't cover the needed width. (CUT THIS BACK AT THE WINGED CORNERS FIRST! ) the wings to secure the box to the drywall cannot handle the foam insulation board, never pulling the box tight. The first wing fell into the wall, and the screw to the next sheared. I then had to remove the top and bottom panels, find new hardware in my stash, and try and squeeze my fingers in to get a washer and nut on from the back. Phew it's on the wall, but next...The panel with conduit knockouts, have 2 size holes. I had to drill out the second one to fit both flex ducts in. The panel is so thin, the conduit connectors don't screw down all the way, the panel flexes, and i'm almost certain the 6 clips to hold the panel in (no screws here.) Will one day snap. Check the photo.Now that it's in, it looks decent and organized, but the panels don't quite line up. Hide it with the tv I guess. Was going to give it 2 stars but this review form only lets you see one little line to type in.

                    This is a very good option for creating a hidden in the wall (recessed) power and various connectivities flash TV wall installations; especially useful if need multiple connections to bring in. It provides plenty of space to bring in power, and other connections in one box, and even to hide a small device if needed (i.e. small cable box, Roku or such). It was relatively easy to install once planning was done. The only comments/issues/potential improvements: 1. If the hole in the wall is cust exactly per the included template, it will not be easy to fish in the box. I had to open it up a bit more in the direction of the electrical box. 2. Make sure to plan well to ensure there is plenty of space to the nearest stud as it will occupy almost all the space between studs. 3. All the electrical connections to the box must be made prior to the box installation as there will be no way to reach into it after. 4. I wish that there was an option already made for the flex conduit connection to the electrical box. I had to drill my own hole and get creative. 4. AC receptacle is not included, so, make sure to get one. The good news, you have the option of getting either a simple one or go "fancy" with surge protection (that is what I did). 5. Because no provisions were made for an RF (antenna, Cable) connection, I just used the provided plane cover plate and drilled holes needed and installed the RF connectors at the top. Overall, I was happy the way it came out. Looks good and is practical.

                    Flimsy Plastic
                    Box is designed to use with flexible conduit however the thin plastic box flexes more than the attached conduit and the conduit mounting plate pops out of place because of poorly designed snaps. It only comes with one blank cover so if you want two, well forget it. Try squeezing this thing into the recommended cutout while attempting to use the provided connection points on both sides - can’t be done without access behind the wall. Don’t waste your money. Buy a metal type box to avoid all the aggravation.

                      This is a real nice piece. Lots of flexibility. It will 100% fit in a 2X4 stud wall. With 5/8" drywall it's a little bit of a challenge to get it. I cut my drywall to the minimum and then enlarged as necessary. The electrical box makes install a little tricky. I cut the back side of the drywall on the electrical box side at an angle to help it along. One big oops I did was to forget to install the decora style receptacle BEFORE setting the box in the wall. I am so used to putting in a box then receptacle and plate to follow. I ended up cutting the plastic bigger so a receptacle could be installed from the outside and then plated. Silly mistake for sure! No big deal though. I prefer to have the flexibility of access the receptacle without removing the entire box. I am using this as a network distribution point. smurf tube up to the attic and drag line to the basement below.

                        Just as advertised. Seems robust. Lot's of space. The AC outlet cannot be changed from within the box, so the box needs to be pulled out if you're replacing a surge suppressing outlet, for example. Fortunately, it's an old-work box so it won't be too bad.
