Low Voltage Divider plate for old work box


Are there smaller divider plates for old work boxes? The one at link are to large and I don't see any other sizes available.

not clear as to what you are looking for. The face plate that provides a finished surface? The depth of the box? The size of the divider?

Many big box store should have them on the shelf near the electrical boxes if not there ask one of the workers ask for " low voltage divder " they will know what you are refering to.

They don't cost very much IIRC it should be about 1 Euro or so.

Merci,Marc

Give me a min let me grab the correct catalog number so you can ask the big box guys for correct verison otherwise you can trim them.

I did check it and they only listed for with super bleu boxes { thickwall plastique box } but you can trim them down and fit in the standard bleu box.

Merci,Marc

from the pic, it surely looks like it was designed to accept a divider. Can you confirm that there are ribs in there where a divider would slide into?

and what brand is it. Seems like it might be proprietary design so brand might help.

never mind, I see it is a Carlon.
