When boxes are installed before drywall they sometimes are not mounted correctly which causes the box to be set too far back from the drywall not permitting the device to be installed properly. The box extender levels and supports a wiring device when the box is too far back from the wall.

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

This extender slips into the existing electrical box and the tabs on the outer rim keep it pressed up against the drywall when the outlets or switches are screwed in. This allows the extender to be used to deal with different widths (up to 1-1/2") unlike other box extenders that are a specific depth such as 1/2".
If the drywall was cut too big you might have issues if the tabs don't make contact with the drywall or other wall surface.
The extender does not independently attach to the box. 4 screws were included that are used to attach the switch/outlet to the electrical box and at the same time they hold the extender in place. The screws are longer than the ones that come with the fixtures to allow for the increased depth.
These are useless for a standard single gang Electric box. They are so small that the plaster tab stops will almost fit inside a standard box.
Another review said they fit old work boxes, and there are a lot of positive reviews, so I suspect that explains why some people like them. They are useless for me and I am returning them.
The plastic is adequate, but not heavy duty as claims.
It does not come with screws. This is to be expected. Order a box of 6/32 screws of the correct length.
This 2-gang extender was the answer. These extenders are very hard to find in the big box stres near me. The 1-gang extenders are readily available, but not the 2-gang extenders. They were exactly what we needed and helped us end up with a gorgeous new backsplash that looks professionally installed!
