Mounting GFCI Onto Cover


Is it proper to use a 4x4x1.5 box (the kind with a screw on two of the diagonals), a raised (1/2") exposed work cover with centered opening for GFCI, and mount the GFCI rigidly onto the cover? The reason I would do this is that I have the material on hand. I may also want to swap the cover for a dual GFCI (on seperate circuits) down the road.

Sure, as long as it's not in a location that requires a weatherproof cover.
