May sound counter intuitive, but the single outlet is mounted in the middle and the cord from my appliance would not fit because of the material below the plug. I ordered a double outlet, plugged it in the top and this gave me enough room. Not sure what real advantage a single outlet has.

The reason I can't give a 5-star rating is because I believe it can be improved if only that little hook could be removed. Unfortunately, it cannot. I had to order this to learn that, because the item description didn't specify. Now I'm returning it for another one without the hook. So if you don't plan on covering up this receptacle (with a clock or illuminated wall hanging as it was designed to be used), then find the other single recessed receptacle without the hook. Amazon does sell it (as of this writing). I understand this was designed for the hook to be used, but a design where the hook can be removed, would be even better, in my opinion.

I needed to retrofit a plug-in florescent light for a closet. I did not want the cord plug sticking out from the wall and snagging clothes, etc... so a recessed receptacle seemed to be the answer. The only problem for my purposes was the metal built-in clock hanger, but a couple of squeezes with a pliers took care of that problem! This unit is well made and designed to work perfectly for hanging electric clocks or other wall mounted devices and as in my case, can also be adapted for other uses where reducing the "wall bump" of a cord plug is desired.

Perfect solution at a great price when you need a recessed receptacle so that your plug is not excessively exposed. Very easy to install. Excellent placement for the wiring screw-downs that are on the back sides (hot and neutral) and top (ground) of the receptacle. The backside of the receptacle (wiring block) is also nice due to it reduced size leaving extra room to tuck away the wiring. Comes with two long (1" plus in length) mounting screws just in case your receptacle box has an abnormal setback (more than 1/2" or 5/8"). Otherwise, you can use shorter screws if you have a extras in your spare screw jar. The Clocked Hanger Hook is a nice feature. I used my Prime account with the free 2-day delivery. Amazon rocks as the product was actually delivered the "next" day (ordered on Friday and it was delivered on Saturday).

This is perfect for those places when you do not have room or want to see the plug. This is made to hang a 110V clock but can be used anytime you have space limits. I used it inside a Subwoofer cabinet.

These are hard to find so it is really nice to be able to just go to Amazon. I have these all over the house for lamps to light paintings. Recently realized that it might be more efficient to simply buy a picture lamp that is hardwired into the wall. But with the clock box, the lamp is fastened to the back of the painting's frame, so can be removed with the painting.

The product I received was exactly what I expected. After some shopping around I found the price this product was offered at was a very good value.
My order shipped quickly and arrived on time.
I would recommend this vendor.

We purchased this outlet to replace the one installed by our builder for a fluorescent wall clock. The intent was to have the clock's plug recessed so the clock would sit flush on the wall.

Unfortunately, our clock's plug has a relatively flat, but large base and the cord comes off it at a 45 degree angle relative to the prongs...so we had to jam the plug into the receptacle to get the clock to work at all. We will have to rewire the plug to get the clock to sit flush on the wall.

Before buying this, be sure the plug you're using will fit...or replace the plug with a standard one first.
