Description

Plastic switch plate extension lifter will raise the switch plate 3/4" off the wall, great to cover electrical boxes that are raised and stick out of the wall. Also great for shallow electrical boxes - install a bulkier GFCI receptacle, thick fan control switch or light timer in a box that's not deep enough. Works with any single gang standard size switch plate and most electrical devices including toggle switches, rocker switches, GFCI outlets & duplex outlets. Be sure to check dimensions of your device to be sure it will fit within the inner opening.

    Solved my problem

    I used this extender to install a smart switch, due to it size didn't fit on current box, I wish they would make a double switch too. STAFF: Leviton does not make a double gang version of this extender, but we make our own versions that fits our 2-gang standard covers. See our stackable Depth Extender Rings under the Hardware category for versions that fit standard to 6 gangs as well as oversized covers.

    Worked well

    Just what we needed. Updating a kitchen and putting in GFI outlets, old boxes too small. This worked out well without having to cut drywall

    Solved my issue

    The old switch box was too shallow to install my WiFi enabled switch and this gave me enough room to install it. Everything sticks out of the wall a bit, but this looks nice enough that it looks like i meant to do it.

    Just what I needed.

    Worked great with the smart dimmer and switches I installed. My old house had a cluster of wires that I had to shorten to make the boxes fit in the wall. WIthout doing anything drastic they stuck out of the wall by about half an inch. I was able to maneuver these switch plates over the dimmers and install them on the wall and now they look great.

    Perfect for shallow boxes

    Had to mount some shallow boxes in an island and the outlet hit the conduit fittings in the box. This worked perfect for mounting the outlet in the shallow box and still not look like its out of place or an afterthought.

    Perfect solution for a shallow electrical box

    I needed this to install my new thermostat, the box was a shallow box and I needed more room. This makes the thermostat look better with the raised switch plate. Easy to install too.
