fasta fix boxes


derek13

Question

been putting a light in today, have to say placing a single fasta fix box was hard work but through my own fault i placed it at the side of an existing switch which left me with the problem of hitting the noggin on the other side of where the original switch is placed anyone had these problems and how to get around them?? obviously i didnt move the switch far enough past the noggin:_|:_|

cut the flange off and screw the box to the side of the nogging

I was around when Noggin the nogg was on but far too young to remember it(cough)

Anyone heard of those plasma screen TV's? so far it only works in blue, but you never know, it may work in future

Do you mean dry line box???

Surely if you cut the "flange" off then you have nothing to attach the switch to on one side..

I drill a bit of the stud out [very carefully]

Noz - if you recess into the noggin then you could screw directly into that?

if you cut the flange off a dry liner, you can then hold into place and put a screw through plastic into the wood. either make a small hole first, or go at it with a cordless screwdriver & screw

Well before either. I think it was in b & w & & about the same time as Capt. Pugwash.

When you cut the "flange" off, you are still left with the screw entry for the plate switch.

You are only cutting off the part that clamps the plasterboard, you leave a small amount behind so that the screw will clamp.

The box is screwed to the noggin and hols it secure on that side whilst the other side is clamped by the normal procedure.
