New Product from Thomas & Betts Saves Jobsite Time and Cost

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The new Steel City® 4” Square Open Back Box from Thomas & Betts (T&B) allows for wiring of a pre-installed device from the back, without having to remove the mud ring from the front of the box to make connections.

“The simplified installation of the Steel City® 4” Square Open Back Box saves time and cost on the jobsite,” said Chad Smith, global product group manager at T&B. “After making connections, the installer can simply close the box with a blank cover. This is especially ideal for prefabricated assemblies, where access from the back makes wiring connections in the field fast and easy.”
