    5Works well for when you need your recessed electrical boxes to fit flush
    By M. Burrows
    I used these to complete some new construction where the original installer had aligned the electrical boxes with the frame, not the dry wall, leaving ~1" of gap between any electrical outlet/receptacle fitted and the trim/wall. Rather than having to replace drywall, or patch significantly to fix this code violation, these extenders enabled me to fit the receptacles and cover plates flush with the drywall whilst still meeting local code.
    Note: if you're considering using these for the same, then check the electrical code in your own area yourself, it may not be the same. Your favorite Internet search engine is invaluable here...

    The material quality of these is good and they fit well for me. Bonus that they were on Prime, ensuring prompt delivery..

    Hope this helps, Mike

    5Perfect for the job
    By gmu599
    I bought the Carlon brand extensions originally, but found they didn't fit the metal junction boxes I needed to extend. These work much better if you need to extend a metal junction box. I also found that the Arlington extenders could be trimmed very easily with a pair of snips. I read a review suggesting that these are cheap feeling. I would have to disagree. They are not the hard plastic you'll find with the Carlon extenders, but they aren't flimsy. They are flexible enough to work with and thin enough to trim down easily.

    Having tiled a backsplash before without this product, I fully appreciate how great they are. They were simple and easy to use. I have four outlets in a row in two places and a few more singles. The ease of trimming the boxes with my kitchen/shears (!) was a time and frustration saver. I strongly recommend this product!
