Outlet Trim Plate Spacer?


I get a kick out of these posts. Someone comes here and asks a question and when they don't like the answer the people on the board are the ones with the wrong answer.

Outlet Trim Plate Spacer?


Google extension ring for electrical boxes. Purchase one and then make your own spacer. The extension ring will have to increase the volume of the box enough to make it code legal for the box fill. A spacer by itself will not be compliant, the device and wiring must be contained within an approved enclosure.

If you can pull the switch out and get us some good pictures of the wiring and box size we can tell you the required cubic inces you will need to add.

Just trying to give world class customer service ....
