  1. Great Backplate for a thermostat 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Nov 2018

    I recently bought a condo that has baseboard electric heat in each room. The thermostats were the original 30 year old rotary single pole thermostats. I replaced them all with a double pole digital thermostat. The wires were tight in the boxes and the fit was a little rough around the edges. This product solved 2 problems. Space and appearance. Great product!

  2. Lifesaver! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Nov 2017

    So, I have a home that is over a century old and not taking it’s age into consideration decided to replace all the outlets with ones that have built-in USB jacks only to discover the wire boxes in the Wall were too shallow to accept the new outlets. Crisis averted thanks to this product! Every single outlet is now in place and working properly. This product is exactly as pictured/described and it is *highly* recommended to anyone in the same situation. Screws long enough to secure the extenders are also included!
