Caddy Electrical Box Supports Work with Stud Depths up to 4"

SOLON, Ohio, USA, October 2006 - When used in conjunction with CADDY® Screw-On Conduits Supports, CADDY Electrical Box Supports from ERICO® provide for easy, code-compliant installation. The H23 Box Mounting Bracket for electrical boxes easily attaches 4" and 4-11/16" outlet boxes to wood or metal studs. The bracket complies with NEC® Article 300.4(d) and CEC® Rule 12-3012.

The H23 bracket works with 2-½" and 3-½" stud depths. A support leg on the bracket reduces movement of the box in the wall. The offset design of the support leg and use of optional #SMS8 low-profile self-tapping screws reduce drywall bulge.

The CADDY MEB1 extends stud depths to 4". The bracket has built-in support legs to reduce box movement when used with EMT. It is ideal for flexible conduit, EMT, MC/AC or Romex® non-metallic sheathed cable.

The versatile MEB1 mounts on either side of the stud without the need to reposition the box. It also eliminates the need for an electrical box in low-voltage applications when plaster rings are mounted separately. The bracket works on two box depths (1-½" and 2-1/8" deep), two box sizes (4" and 4-11/16") and three stud depths (2-½", 3-½" and 4"). A V-notch on the center allows for consistent positioning.

Like the H23, the MEB1 also reduces drywall bulge when used in conjunction with #SMS8 low-profile self-tapping screws.
