This electrical box is very sturdy, made of galvanized steel, has rounded corners, 4 pop-outs on the back, 1 on each side, measures 4” x 4” diagonally, UL approved, and is made in the US. 2 screws to hold the optional cover on are included. I used this box to add a lighting fixture in a secondary bathroom on the wall above the medicine cabinet. The new fixture attached easily to the box, and is holding firmly to the wall. Worked out great.

This box was the best thing that ever happened to electricity!!! It mounted to the board easily, the knock outs knocked out, the wire fit like a glove. The light fixture mounted to the box with the brilliant included screws. I am a bit disappointed now as since completing the project, the box is no longer visible. I can still sense it's presence, but miss being able to see and touch it
