First photo shows 4 knock-outs on the bottom of the box and a raised spot with a hole in it, for a ground screw I would suppose. The third photo shows 5 knock-outs and no raised spot. What box will I get if I order model #8125 ?

In wall there is a metal stud (not wood). Best way to secure box to the stud? Metal screws assume? Any specific type

Asked by: Dlewis812
Thank you for you inquiry regarding RACO 4 in. Octagon boxes. To secure this box to the metal stud, use either self-tapping or self-piercing sheet metal screws.

4 in. Drawn Octagon Electrical Box with Raised Ground is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 8.

Date published: 2019-03-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

The raised grounds make it much easier to attach a ground wire to the box and the box has two spots for attaching the ground. It is a sturdy looking box with plenty of knock outs to fish wires into the box from any angle you might like. It is galvanized and should provide many years of service. Not really sure how much more can be said about a box that wires are connected into.

The raised ground makes it easy to attach a ground screw even when the box is mounted on a flat surface. Has ½" knockouts on the sides and on the back. Easily knock one out and use any number of clamps, grips, etc... Has two 8-32 screws to hold a cover or use this box for a ceiling fan or light.

Here is probably the nicest and best made 4 inch octagon electrical box I've ever used. It's very stout. Has nice gentle corners. No sharp edges exists even on the outer edge. Has a raised ground which is very convenient. For further convenience it comes with two 8-32 cover mounting screws. All that's left is a good electrician to complete the job..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from SKU not correct This box isn't actually a deep box. Went to pickup from store and they gave me the standard box. Checked with the Electrical Assoc and confirmed the skus between online and the store are not correct (online is not labeled correct, 2 products online with 1 sku). The local store quickly did get me what I needed though, and were very apologetic though it wasn't their fault.
