Receptacles go too far into box. Can steel washers be used to shim out a 1/8 -1/4"? Thanks.

Is the box flush with the finished surface?

Use an add-a-depth ring and nuts or washers behind it to secure it. Sometimes the ring is enough.

Arlington makes plastic ones. Look for BE1, BE2 and BE1R for round boxes. They can be ganged for larger boxes.
