Can the plastic box extender be used in a metal electrical switch box?

Answers

As others have stated, yes, they can be....but they cannot be used with self-grounding receptacles that rely on box contact for effectiveness. The grounding screw must always be used in such cases.

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?

You have to have long wires. I was able to rotate the outlet 90 degrees perpendicular towards me, slip on the extender, and then rotate the outlet back vertally.

Will this work with a gfci outlet??

Absolutely! The GFCI's have to fit a standard size box. At the opening of the insert, it is standard size, then tapers smaller to slip inside the existing box.

I don't see why not. The insert keeps the electrical away from the wood.

The maximum depth of this box extender is 1 1/2”. Sounds like you have an extra 1/4” to play with. Remember, the box extender fits inside your existing box.

I built out a section of unused space under my inside stairs. I set my electrical box for typical residential thickness drywall 1/2". However I was given some scrap commercial thickness drywall (5/8"). I put the drywall up without thinking of resetting my electrical box. So I found these extenders and they were the perfect solution to the extra length I needed while still keeping all my wires in a safe enclosure. The pack comes with 2 and the price is very reasonable.

We were putting wall board over lathe and Horsehair plaster, circa 1860. 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!

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
