This is a great kit for DIY junction box problems. I added kitchen backsplash tile and all the outlet boxes were going to be 5/16" buried. Three of the little yellow spacers stack like Legos and stick on the screw and perfectly supported the outlets at the desired height. The 32 spacers supplied took care of 5 outlets. I appreciated the combination of flat head and panhead screws for mounting light fixtures as well as the white and cream painted face plate screws for the dropped one I couldn't find. Anytime I have to mount a new light fixture or figure out why an electrical switch or outlet is wiggling I grab this kit.
Indispensable is the best word to describe this lit. Perfectly sized with nearly all "emergency" pieces to complete a small job without leaving the area, pick through parts or having to make a quick trip to the Depot! Especially useful when doing an upgrade, replacement or adjustment required from spackle work. There is enough room to add some extra pieces (color, size, etc.) so that you can have access while away from your storage area. Fits neatly in my tool bag and is with me whenever I take my tools to another room or to help a neighbor. A homeowner MUST HAVE!!!
The new Box Solutions Kit from GB places all the small parts in one box for convenience. The plastic kit has different sized storage compartments inside one closeable container. When working on electrical boxes it keeps all the small screws, grounding screws and clamps, outlet cover screws and spacers in one easy to find a package. I have all of these items but scattered through multiple electrical toolboxes. I can refill this one package and keep everything together.
This kit is a must-have for doing electrical trim. It has all the standard screw sizes in pan and flat head and varied lengths for installing receptacles/switches with spacers - so you don't end up with devices that move on you! It also has ground screws and white cover plate screws to make sure you can finish your jobs cleanly. The case is a good quality and appears like it will easily last as long or longer than the supplies. Biggest downside and reason for the average rating is that all the screws are slot head, rather than multi tip or just Phillips.
Pros: Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
The packaging of this product is pretty much the standard you would see with other multi assortment accessory kits. The quantity of each Item included in the kit is good. I would have liked to see for the ground screws, different sizes of screws, as the ones in this particular kit would not be able to replace a missing one from a standard outlet receptacle or light switch. Quality control for product in the kit may be lacking. One of the ground screws is missing the hex-head, and the face plate screws color coating is not very good. This being a "box solutions kit", it seams to lack a better variety, or more numerous selection of items. Priced right, this is not a bad, just limited.
This kit is great for the home owner or handyman that doesn't do very much electrical work. It has the essentials that you need as far as spacers and longer screws. However, l would prefer Phillips head or combo headed screws instead of just slotted head. The case is very nice and I will continue to use it to keep my electrical screws in order. It's also nice that this kit has grounding screws and clips as well.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Good Size & Weight, Nice Design
Finally a screw kit to solve all your electrical outlet box installation issues. I found this kit (particularly the spacers and longer screws) very useful in getting the outlets and switches to fix properly on my new construction homes. If you are installing new outlets or ceiling fans for new construction or remodeling a home by replacing your outdated outlets, this kit will come in very handy for installing the grounds and face plates. The kit includes grounding screws, grounding clips, machine screws, face plate screws and twist-apart spacers. The screws come in both flat and countersunk type heads and has the various lengths you will need to install your outlets. The twist-apart spacers (sometimes called caterpillars) provide a way to get a proper fit for face plates if the drywall or tile openings just are not quite right. The grounding screws and clips provide positive grounding to switch, outlet or junction boxes for the common copper grounding wire sizes. The handy storage box keeps the small parts all organized for easy access.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Nice Design, Sturdy
I handle most electrical projects in my house, and except on rare occasions, I haven't had the need to hunt for switch or outlet box screws. This kit contains 124 pieces which should last you several life times. The screws come in a plastic case with locking latch, which was difficult to open and close, plus plastic tab on top can be use to hang off a peg hook.
If you are buying new switch and outlet boxes you shouldn't need this kit. If you are recycling old components there may be a need for this, although I would just go out and buy a small packet of whatever is missing.
It does include include 6 ivory and 6 white faceplate screws, but no beige. The quality was subpar as all of them had chipped paint. Except for the faceplate screws, each size includes both flat and round heads. However the screws seem to be low quality with uneven finish.
The 10 grounding clips might come in handy when trying to ground old boxes and the electrical spacers may help if you tiled a wall, but overall like the box of washers I had for 30 years, this kit has limited usefulness. Add to it the low quality of the materials and I think you are better off just buying the separate items you actually need.
Pros: Easy to Move, storage case, various screw sizes
Cons: No Instructions, chipped finish on faceplate screws, poor finish, latch difficult to use
What a kit! It has all the parts that I needed to finish my so called kitchen remodel. My wife brought this home from Home Depot thinking I might need some of the parts well bless her heart! She was so right, I used the spacers and longer screws to extend the outlet for the granite backsplash and the grounding clips and screws made for a nice up to code job. I was amazed that the kit had 124 pieces!
