What do you guys use for tighten lock nuts. I have the one from channel lock or the good ol punch and hammer.

I'd only get one if i was a gift. Too many boxes have the lock-nuts behind the tabs to screw devices/plaster-rings on.
Oooooooohhhhhh..... Handy box usage will get you fired from my company.

Insert the connector about 90 degrees from the position you want it to be in. Thread the locknut on and tighten it down as far as you can. Turn the connector with your hand until it's in the right position. It should be nice and tight and where you need it to be.
how dare you admit to that
