Lift up devices or extend electrical boxes that sit back into the wall.
Goof rings are a great way to extend your electrical box.
Turn the power running to the device off, then pull the device through the goof ring and install the device back into the box going through the goof ring.
If the surface's hole is so large that the goof ring sinks down into the wall instead of resting on the new surface, you can add electrical spacers under the device to lift up as needed.
In this example, the goof ring rested properly on the top, but cleared the bottom edge. One spacer was added underneath to get the outlet even. Multiple spacers can be stacked up to reach a desired height.
Fix Device Sticking Out of Box:
Your device may be too thick or bulky to fit into the electrical box.
This can happen when updating older outlets or dimmer switches with modern devices.
If you can't screw the devices down snug into the box, you have 2 options.
OPTION 1: Add 6197 Extenders
For 1-gang boxes, you can unscrew the device and place a 6197 box extender over the electrical box.
Then, install the device through the extender back into the electrical box and cover using a standard wall plate.
OPTION 2: Use Spacers
For 1 or more gangs, electrical box spacers can be used between the box and the device to secure the device into place.
Longer device screws may be required depending on how far the device is sticking out.
After you've secured the device using spacers to fill the gap, you have a few options for covering the device.
Deep Plates to Fill Gap
These wall plates have a deeper edge bevel and are made to fill the gap left by a standard size switchplate cover. Only available in limited configurations & finishes.
