outlet on 14" island overhang


Can the Island outlet be mounted in or on a corbal/ bracket to bring the outlet to within 6" of the edge of the counter. If the feed is up tight in a piece of EMT or surface channel, then hang the box, off of the counter or from the corbal, or recessed in the corba, will that comply to code. I want three sided seating at the island and there is no real room on the draw side and there is a range in the center,. Slab is 43" x 104" I'm looking for 14" overhang.

The outlet has to be within 12" of the overhang to count as a countertop receptacle.

I have been using these on islands and peninsulas when space is tight.

Can't have receptacles face up on the countertop. Nice product though.

Do not see anything about suggesting them being placed in the countertop. Of course, you can not stop a person from doing so after the fact.

It says in the info for the website. I like them, especially since we may still put in a small island, when we finish the kitchen.

Seen them in the supply houses. They were originally intended for window sill candles. Easy to install. Just bore a hole down through the sill and install. Never thought of using them in a kitchen. Neat!
