Gangable old work boxes


I want to run two sticks of 3/4" ENT (smurf tube) into a metal old work box. One tube will be for the wiring of a 15 amp receptacle and the other for low-voltage (CAT5E, coax, etc). If I gang two boxes together, can I leave all of the sides on one of the boxes so I have a divider? Or do I need to use a separate divider?

This is the box I think I can use but I want to make sure: http://www.hubbellcatalog.com/raco/R...eet.asp?PN=565

Or could I use a double gang old work box and put a divider in it?

You cannot put them together if you do not remove the sides (from both boxes) facing each other.
