Can you slip it over an installed outlet, or do you have to unhook the wires, pull the outlet out, slip the extender in and reinstall?

Asked by: Cosonov
If you have enough wire to tilt the receptacle so the insert can slip over it lengthwise, then yes.

With the nailers and the wall board, the 1960's steel electrical boxes were about 1-3/8" recessed. These extenders worked great. Hardest part is trying to get the extended screws to "start" in the recessed box!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from does the job well i recently installed a mosaic backsplash in my kitchen, with the backerboard, mortar, and tile thickness it recessed the outlets over 3/4's of an inch. these box extensions were a nice universal extension that filled the void. the backs are tapered and they flex if you have interference on the sides or top of your hole. a little pricey for what they are but they do the job well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the job I needed these after installing a tile backsplash in my kitchen. I was surprised to learn that this is actually a 2-pack, and extended screws are included in the package. The extender itself is sort of a flimsy plastic, though this actually makes it very easy to trim with a tin snip and is still sturdy enough for its application. Overall I'm very pleased with this product, and it fit my needs perfectly.

This product was excellent it fit the small metal 1 gang boxes that sat back from the drywall as much as 3/4" they are flexable and can be cut and adapt to a 2 gang box as well. I just used them last week on a job where every switch and plug needed one. It worked for every situation

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did just what it was supposed to. I used this to fix a tricky outlet box that the builder had apparently installed before installing the drywall so it was 1/2 inch too far back. This fixed it perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed! I recently put wainscoting in the dining room and had several outlets that were too recessed for the cover plate. One of the boxes (we live in a 1940's home) was not as deep as the other but a quick snip of the backing allowed us to customize the depth. We tried the small plastic clips that you put on the screw but they let the outlet shift when we unplugged things and needed constant adjusting. After finding this product I will never use them again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cut them with scissors to trim them however you want. They are flexible and easy to use. A bit expensive but so darn easy to use and versatile that it's worth it. They come two per pack and they include long screws.
