Why don't these come with a ground screw?

Asked by wcwitherssr December 29, 2020
2
Answers

These boxes are junction boxes designed to join electrical wires together with wire nuts. They are not meant for installing switches or outlets.

The box doesn't come with the cover?

It does not, you pick the cover you need with ranges from a flat cover, mud cover, switch cover or receptacle cover

What's the weight limit for this box? Can I install a ceiling fan using this box?

Nope, you need a special box and bracket for that. Ceiling fans are usually on 4" octagon boxes.

You can use the appropriate depth device ring and then cover plate if the box is recessed in the drywall. Otherwise you need an industrial device cover if the box is surface mounted.

This box works well and can accommodate ½” or ¾” conduit fittings with a wide variety of knock out options. The exposed installation on our porch ceiling looks clean and tidy. We are in the final stages of constructing a rustic porch and needed an electrical junction box to run the wires from the house wall switch to the exterior ceiling fan lights and wall lights. This box worked perfectly and allowed us to run three pairs of hot/neutral wires with room to spare. The one aspect of the box I really liked is the variety of knockout positions and the combo ½” & ¾” knockouts. The ¾” knockouts can be positioned on the left, right or center depending on the orientation of the box. We were using ½” conduit so we simply pushed the knockout out with a screwdriver and broke the retainer tab by rocking it backwards and forwards with some electrical pliers. There is a raised ground mount inside the box however we didn’t end up using it since our older home has two wires without the ground wire. There is no grounding screw included with the box so you would need to buy this separately. We secured the box to the underside of our porch roof using a couple of drywall screws through the pre-drilled mounting holes. Once we were done with the wiring, we finished the job off using a matching Raco electrical box cover plate.

This is the most commonly used electrical junction box in my inventory of electrical supplies on keep on hand. It seems like I never run out of electrical renovations, and this 4 x4 junction box always turns out to be the one I like to use to make my splice connections. I have also used it for switch and outlet mounting boxes. I use them in conjunction with using conduit, Romex, flexible conduit, and liquid-tight conduit.

I like this junction box! It's very sturdy and they've included a raised threaded place for a ground wire to attach. There are 3 punch outs on each side and 4 on the back of the box. This makes it very very easy to get my wiring in from any angle or position I need. I'm using this outside under a car port and it'll have 2 plugs (4 outlets total) for lighting and a power supply for a home security camera. Can't ask for much more from this item. Works great!

Excellent wall depth galvanized electrical box. For new construction you'd need brackets, but I'm using these for junction boxed in the attic, so the diamond of screw holes in the back were sufficient for my needs. An excess of knock out holes with up to conduit size, but I just used them for clamps. Hard to know out, but that's a good thing really. Quality of the metal seems way above average as well.
