can't find my old thread

peasantgirlieApril 4, 2011


I posted a question on here several months ago about upgrading my old electrical outlets (25 yr old Romex) to new ones. My problem is finding work boxes that will fit 1 and 3/4" walls. Someone posted a pic back then of a very wide workbox that loked like it would fit.

I had to put the project on hold for a while and now I am ready to do the work but can't find that old thread with the info.

I searched a lot here and in the electrical formus and can't find the old post.

Does anyone know what kind of workbox I am talking about? It's extra wide so that the wires fit to the side of the receptacle instead of behind it.

Sharon, the search feature on GW isn't the best. Have your tried Googling it?
