pvc box


Installing a gfi receptacle horizontally in a pvc box. The pvc box does not have a clamp on it. The wire that comes into the box is not very tight with the clamp tab on the pvc box. Not really holding the wire. How to clamp the wire? The wire is not coming up into the box like it would be if the box was mounted vertically on a stud and use the stud to hold wire. Thanks.

Are you talking about a standard plastic box for indoor use?
