6" Square Box


Garvin makes this 6" square junction box.

http://www.garvinindustries.com/Elec...kouts/6150-3-4



and you can get 6" mud rings like this:

But I couldn't find any 6" tall cover plates.

What am I missing?

6" Square Box


The picture shown isn't of a 6" mud ring, that looks to be a 4 11/16" mud ring. But that is of no matter. The device opening is standard no matter what size mud ring you install. A standard device and plate is all you need.

Kbuz is correct. That mud ring is for an 11B box.
