There sure are times that these are needed. After drywall and some new and existing outlets needed to be wired I used some of these to flush the outlets out so that they would look nice and neat and be sturdy and secure. I have used these for quite a few years, and I really like them. Better then some that use some wood shim stock to flush the outlets. I always keep some on hand. When the outlets and switches are nice and flush the job looks better and more professional.
I purchased a cabin that had several outlets that were installed too deeply into the finished wall to apply switch and outlet covers. We were able to use these spacers to force them forward slightly - inexpensive and practical solution without having to tear out the outlets.
These spacers were a must-have for our kitchen backsplash project! I did the whole kitchen (6 outlet plates and 3 double switch plates) for less than $8.00 with tax and still had about a third left over.

Hey thanks for the review these little spacers are a great way of getting the wiring device level with the new tiled wall. Take care Ron at email@example.com
