How To Combine Gangable Boxes

- Mar 29, 2018-

In order to join two or more gangable boxes together, you must first remove one set screw from each of the boxes that hold on the side plates. Use a screwdriver to remove the screws and set them aside for the reconnection process.

There are a couple of methods of connecting a receptacle on the outside of your home. One is to cut a regular junction box into the interior of the wall and only expose the box opening to the outside. Then, after you add a ground fault circuit interrupter outlet, cover the outlet with a gasket and a cover plate to seal the connection to the wall. 

Another method is to attach a weatherproof box to the wall using the mounting brackets provided within the box and a couple of screws to attach it firmly to the wall. These mounts are external so there are no holes through the interior of the box.
