  1. Worked well 5 Star Review

    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

  2. Solved my issue 5 Star Review

    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.

  3. Just what I needed. 5 Star Review

    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.

  4. Perfect for shallow boxes 5 Star Review

    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.
