Yeah, Thats exactly what i've been saying...Cut the wall..Without seeing the box firsthand I cannot say whether snips will cut it or not, It was just a thought in a crazy situation.. Whyhe would want to spend so much time breaking his a$$ is beyond me...A few dollars for new connectors, box and some spackleis well worth it rather then driving yourself nuts!
