round box extenders

I plan to mount 4 light sconces on a wall. The wiring and drywall is all done and I have used 4" blue plastic round boxes.

Now we are thinking about a wall treatment that would require me to extend the boxes about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. I've never seen round plastic extenders before. Does such a thing exist?

Try an Arlington BE-1R. Should be available at an electrical supply house.


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
