Hello all,

I’ve got a house built in early seventies. As I’m going through doing fix ups I’m finding many of the outlets are mounted deeper than the wall surface so that there often is quite a gap between the outlet and the plate opening. I thought of using washers to bring the outlets flush, but it seems that may not be a very secure method. Anyone know of any tricks to bring the outlet out so it mounts properly with the wall plate?

Thanks for any ideas.
Chuck

Depending on how wide the gap is, I have made these from Plastic Electrical boxes. Measure the space and cut the front of the box off to that depth. I did this at a friends house where he insulated his block walls and the dry waller mudded them in securely. Or use a long screw to attach the outlet and the spacer to the old one. Dan

Depending on how much trouble you want to go through to set them right, you could enlarge the area around the outlet box and reset it. Yes, this will cause you to have to patch and refinish the sheet-rock in this area.
