I have some network equipment inside of a Suttle wiring cabinet. There is a punch out for an electrical outlet and it was like this when I moved in to the house. This might be convenient if you just want to plug in, but I have a large UPS so I end up just going out.
Can I take this metal electrical box out of the wall and just remount it to the stud? Seems to be a regular outlet, but I wasn't sure because every other box in my house is plastic. I would rather have it below and them just pass in the necessary power cords from the UPS.
If I need to replace with a plastic box or do anything else (obviously turn off circuit when moving), please let me know.
