Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

Does the face sit flush on the wall?
[ Oh yeah  Apr 17, 2021 ]
1 answer
The trim flange protrudes from the wall approximately 1/16 of an inch. The box mounts inside the wall directly to the studs. The removable trim hardware is also inside the box. I was very pleased with the fit and finish of the product.
[ Jim  Apr 17, 2021 ]
Are there AC outlet knockouts on the sides of the box? Trying to see if I can install it vertically with outlets on the top or bottom.
[ Scott  Dec 14, 2020 ]
3 answers
Yes. There are multiple knockouts
[ Philip  Dec 16, 2020 ]
Yes there are and yes you can install vertically.
[ GERALDO  Dec 15, 2020 ]
Yes, there's a single knockout on each side of the box.
[ SEAN  Dec 14, 2020 ]
Is the flange on the box removable?
[ Rachel  Aug 31, 2020 ]
3 answers
Yes, it's removable for installation. You technically wouldn't have to install it, but you'd see the gap between the box and the drywall or your wall material.
[ Ryan  Sep 01, 2020 ]
It is not removable, it could be removed if you really wanted to. The flange makes the install look really clean if installing in the wall though. Fits nicely between studs, have a right hand drill handy as you can't fit a full drill in there to screw it in the studs.
[ Jeff  Aug 31, 2020 ]
The flang is actually just a trim ring to cover any gaps and is removable.
[ TROY  Aug 31, 2020 ]
Where are these made?
[ Eric  Mar 30, 2022 ]
1 answer
Country of origin is USA.
