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

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!

Bought two five-packs of these after trying one from the BORG. They're simply wonderful.

After installing wainscoting, my outlets were recessed about 1/4", so the face plates wouldn't sit on there right and the devices were recessed into the wall. If I bent the receptacle legs to bring them back out of the wall, they'd fail and fall back in after being plugged/unplugged a few times.

These devices slide right into the box and provide an extra lip around the edge. You can cut and modify them (I had to modify several, because the original electrician used nails through boxes instead of stud brackets) with a razor knife without breaking code. Says so in the included instructions. Gives you UP TO 1.5" of extension, and the rest slides right into the wall.

Needed box extenders because of new tile in kitchen. Doual gang ones not
available locally. Installed easily and fixed the problem. Screws
were plenty long.

I first tried the Carlon box extenders which are made of thicker material but found they are made to fit the Carlon New Work PVC boxes and are too large to fit in the smaller metal boxes I have. After cutting and grinding three to fit flush against my boxes I tried these. They fit beautifully and surpassed my expectations.

Works just as advertised. I had to cut corners due to my old boxes being too small for new inserts to slide into. After that went right in and with included screws snugged right up.
