I have to install several electrical boxes for outlets, switches, and fixtures before installing some drywall. The boxes I have look like this:
The distance between the front of the mounting flange and the front of the box is about 7/16", but of course I'm going to use 1/2" drywall. So two questions:
The box will end up sunken into the wall by 1/16" or so...will that matter?
The flange itself is about 1/16" thick...will this make a bump or other problem under the drywall?
The place where these boxes are going is just wide enough for a 2-gang box to fit (I need to use some 2-gang boxes too, have ones like in the pic with the same mounting flange), so this kind of box is going to make things a lot easier than using the kind with the two nails since there's no way I could get a hammer in there to drive the nails. I could drive screws through the sides of the boxes into the studs, but I always find it hard to keep the boxes at the proper depth when I do that.
