Do you have a construction project involving outlets? Maybe you are working on a backsplash for your kitchen or another remodeling project that involves outlets that need to be flush with the surface. If so, you may need electrical outlet extenders.
How do electrical outlet extenders help? As you may already be aware, the use of tile or backsplash in your kitchen adds width to the wall and can create outlet installation issues. Outlets on walls that don’t use electrical outlet extenders can have an unfinished look – it’s almost as if the outlets appear to be sunk into the wall.
The importance of an electrical outlet extender goes beyond just the look; it can also help to support loose outlets and prevent wall plates from breaking.
An easy fix for your outlets is simply getting some electrical outlet extenders from Spacerr and taking on a small DIY (Do-It-Yourself) project to provide a more polished-looking visual by upgrading your outlets with our Spacerr outlet extenders.

How to Extend Outlets for a Wall with Spacerr Outlet Extenders
It’s important to be very careful when working on electrical projects. If you are unsure, you may want to call a local electrician to help you with upgrading your outlets, but if you want to do it yourself using our Spacerr electrical outlet extenders (also known as spacers), here are the simple steps to follow.
First, turn off the power to the areas of your home where you will be upgrading the outlets. This is to protect you from getting electrocuted while working on upgrading your outlets. You will need to go to your breaker panel and flip the switches off to the area you will be working on. (Important note: Be sure to test the outlets for power either by plugging something in to test whether it works or not, or borrowing a voltage tester to check for electrical current.)
Measure the thickness of your wall’s material and add an additional 1/8″ to determine the length of the electrical outlet extender or spacer needed for your outlet(s).
Safely cut the electrical outlet extender to measurement with a knife or scissors.
Slide the electrical outlet extender over the receptacle retaining screw between the receptacle and the outlet box.
Tighten up the retaining screws until the receptacle tabs are flush with the surface of the wall.
Replace the wall’s cover plate and notice it will be secure and flush to the surrounding surface.
That’s all! Easy assembly! Simply turn off the power, measure, cut, and screw into place. With fast and easy installation, our electrical box extender kit is what you need when it comes to upgrading your outlets with electrical outlet extenders.
