Product Overview

The Ideal Spacers are perfect for supporting loose outlets and preventing faceplates from being broken. These spacers help eliminate the need to cut plate screws for GFCI decorator devices when they are installed on tile and marble and can also be used as shims. Tear-apart spacers caterpillar together to create desired shim depth.
  • Adjusts length of receptacle or switches for proper fit of face plates
  • Not intended to be used in lieu of standard means of support or when in conflict with governing electrical codes
  • Slips over screw between device and electrical box
  • Snaps on over #6, #8, #10 screws (screws not included)
  • Do not use if finish is combustible (e.g. wood paneling) without proper barrier
  • Tear off sections as needed - each section is 1/8 in.
  • Eliminates the need to cut plate screws

There sure are times that these are needed. After drywall and some new and existing outlets needed to be wired I used some of these to flush the outlets out so that they would look nice and neat and be sturdy and secure. I have used these for quite a few years, and I really like them. Better then some that use some wood shim stock to flush the outlets. I always keep some on hand. When the outlets and switches are nice and flush the job looks better and more professional.

I purchased a cabin that had several outlets that were installed too deeply into the finished wall to apply switch and outlet covers. We were able to use these spacers to force them forward slightly - inexpensive and practical solution without having to tear out the outlets.

These spacers were a must-have for our kitchen backsplash project! I did the whole kitchen (6 outlet plates and 3 double switch plates) for less than $8.00 with tax and still had about a third left over.

    These are so helpful when an electrical box is positioned too far back behind the wall to make a good flush installation of an outlet or switch. HD stopped carrying these for a while and hunted everywhere to locate them. Thank you Home Depot!
