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!

Is the extension adjustable or set? If set, how much of an extension does it give?

Asked by: Cosonov
It is adjustable until the extension lip seats to drywall if its bigger than that for a gap it would be likely over an inch or more which something different would need to be done.

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

As the back of the cabinet was a flimsy 1/4" mdf material I opted to install the electrical box in the wall and then use this extender to bring the outlet flush with the inside of the cabinet. Worked perfect and I can sleep well at night knowing it won't arc and set my new kitchen on fire. haha.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and easy No trimming required it just slides right in to whatever depth you need. I needed these because the drywall and tile depth didn't allow for me to install deep USB receptacles. With these everything was a breeze and the job is done safely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy peasy! We remodeled our kitchen and used stone as the backsplash. It's much thicker than tile & I was hopeful the extender would do the trick for getting the outlets in their proper places (never had this issue before). After turning off the power, and unhooking the outlets, the extenders were a piece of cake to install!! We would not hesitate to get more if we ever need them again! :)
