Default Carlon adjust a box

Just picked a few of these up. Customer hasn't decided on wall finish on kitchen yet, figured it would be nice to be able to adjust depth instead of adding box extenders or shims

Anyone have experiences with these?

I use them just because their blue! They are nice for other reasons. I've had to increase the number of gangs and just run the old one out. Cut the hole bigger and run the new one in, slick!

They work great for the outside receptacles when the house is stuccoed.

Even I use the Carlon Blues for kitchens and baths. It's too foolish not to with the amount of hacks out there today.
