Postion of Swith Box/Switch


Need to move an existing light switch up about 2 inches, but runing into a 2x4 brace. Any problem with mounting the box/switch on its side?

Can you move it more than the two inches so you can clear the brace? Nothing wrong with a box mounted sideways other than it doesn't look good.
