Questions & Answers

Is this a 2-pack??

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
You don't need to unhook the wires. Turn the power off obviously. Take the cover plate off. Unscrew the two screws holding the outlet to the box. Pull the outlet out of the box as far as it will go with the wires still connected. Rotate the outlet and feed it through your box extender (you will have to probably turn it sideways to get it to go through). Then screw the outlet back into the box extender and put the cover plate on. Done!

Will this work with a gfci outlet??

Asked by: Erin
This is meant to extend an outlet or light switch box, the type of outlet (GFCI or regular) doesn't matter. So yes, you can. We installed a GFCI outlet in ours.

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.

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 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.

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.
