A:  Yes, it can be painted. If you are painting with latex you might want to spray a thin coat of primer for a quick one final coat of paint.

This extender was just what I needed to give me space in to replace an old duplex outlet with a GFI. It was easy to install. When using these, keep in mind that standard cover plates will have a gap between the back of the plate and the wall. You can buy an extender wall plate, but they are rather pricey (about $10). Instead, I chose to use a 1/4 by 1/4 wood stock and made a backer ring just larger than the plate. It can be painted to match the wall or the plater. (See photo)

The 2-gang outlet box spacer for 3/8" depth is great. It comes in black. It isn't stiff like solid plastic, but has some flexibility. It wasn't spongy like rubber. Very lightweight. In the five-pack, all the spacers were of the same width, height and depth. For a kitchen back splash, I recently installed ceramic tiles.There were various outlets, double switches, single switches, single GFCI outlet, single outlets, and a single outlet with 2 USB plug outlets. I didn't have any problems installing the 2-gang outlet spacer with the double switches. Also, I didn't have any problems installing the 1-gang outlet spacer with a single switch, single outlet, or single GFCI outlet. The switch and outlet were able to fit through the spacer opening. The screw openings for the 2-gang outlet spacers are wide and screws go through easily. The four screw holes align properly to 2-gang outlet screw holes.The outer frame of the spacer is the same width and height of a double gang box. If you needed to cut parts of the spacer in order to fit larger outlets, you can. I had to do that with this brand's 1-gang box out spacer in order to fit an outlet with 2 USB outlets in it. This works just like a gang box extender, but instead of having to measure how deep it has to be set, you can just measure the depth of the new surface material to determine the spacer depth size you need.

Perfect. Nice simple design, lightweight, flexible plastic, and offers full support of your switch or outlet. I have used so many different spacers for so many different applications. They all have to be modified, cut, bent, stretched, or just flat out don't work. In the past I have had to use a 3d printer to make spacers just like these. These come in different thickness and can be stacked to get them to the perfect size you need. They are not hard and brittle. The soft plastic is flexible making them much easier to work with. These offer support under the entire mounting area so your plug or switch doesn't turn sideways and look awful in the face plate. These fit under every face plate I have tried so far without causing any fitment issues. The price is spot on. I have paid much more for fancier spacers that are trash. I have only seen these in grey and black. I'm not sure if there is a white option, but that would be the only thing I would ask for.

DRC Components electrical double gang box extender spacer ¼-inch 5 pack This is a genius way to solve the loose, sunken light switches in your house done by contractors who didn’t install the electrical box correctly. This is not alone an unsightly problem but loose switched can cause problems in the future. Many times, you look at your light switches in your house especially the newer Decora light switches and you will see the light switched are not level with the plate or sunken below the actual light switch cover. You just simply remove the light switch cover, turn on the light switches so you can easily go to your main electrical panel and turn off the correct breaker controlling the power to the light switches box. This is an easy way to make sure power is off if you do not have an electrical tester. When you are sure the power is off remove the screws at the top and bottom of the switches. Gently pull out both switches and slide the black plastic extender over the switched and hold in place then reinstall the lights switches. In a few instances you might need to get longer screws. Screw the switched back into the box, turn on the power and make sure the switched work correctly. Finally install the light switch cover and admire your job. These also work great for plugs. Check Home Depot web page for additional sizes such as single cover spacers.

This is a great product that has been needed for a long time. It seems like I always find myself in situation where a box is recessed in a wall and the plugs are hard to get secure. I have tried the little folding shims but they only work if it is close to flush. This extension provides secure platform and meets code for combustible wall surfaces. It is high quality manufacturing with no flaws or stray plastic. It comes in a variety of depths and I and keeping several of each size in my electrical stash.

I received my 1/4 inch double gang spacers today, These spacers are a real time saver when you need to bring a electrical box level to the surface. I have used these when doing a backsplash in a kitchen remodel and at various other times just to get a box level with the surface when repairing wires. The spacers come in 1/4,3/8, and 1/2 inch sizes that will work with about any situation that you will encounter,these come in handy and are a real time saver.
