comment How do I install an old work junction box around fire blocking?
Thanks for the edit to identify the actual situation - the fire blocking explanation makes sense. I ended up moving the switch up as per DA01 and your suggestions, with the only issue being that I put the work box directly on top of the horizontal, resulting in the bottom pop-out not being useful - but the hole was tight enough that it's damn hard to pull out anyway.

Yeah, I was wondering that, but was hoping that I could keep the two switches at the same height - but if nobody has any other suggestions I'll end up doing that.
