Can these be used with self grounding receptacles?

I'm looking to space outlets to accommodate an approx 3/8" thick tile backsplash. How thick is a doubled over spacer?

Asked by: JDC1
You can stack as many together as you need for the desired thickness.

Why the odd number in a pack. Not to many outlets that I know of having only one mount.

Asked by: smoothrider
You stack them to get the desired thickness. I often don't use the same number at the top of an outlet as at the bottom (or vice versa) since boxes seem to get installed at all sorts of angles.

Customer Reviews

Ideal Spacers (25-Pack) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 93.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Find I had a double-gang electrical box with an outlet and switch to nowhere installed in paneling that I wanted to turn into something more useful. The electrician had Rube Goldberg'd the original job by cutting too large an opening, jamming two single-gang box extensions and a handful of hex nuts (as spacers that spilled all over) into the box, and used three different size screws to hold the outlet and switch. No way I wanted to replicate that, and I was lucky to stumble upon these in a search. Each strip has eight 1/8 inch segments that fold over upon each other and snap in place. You simply cut off what you don't need or add additional segments as necessary. The strips can accommodate different size screws, and stay in place when installing any device. They provide a very sturdy fit. Combined with an oversize faceplate and proper size screws, you'd never know how poor the original job was. One note: the product at my Home Depot was black, not the bright green pictured.
