How to Install Remodeling Boxes - The Home Depot

If we miss having a plugin in a specific area of ​​our house where there is a smooth surface, we can do it ourselves simply and quickly.

Installing A Socket Plug

The first thing will be to locate the point from which we want to draw the current; it would be ideal for getting it from another nearby USA’s plug socket (ปลั๊กไฟ usa which is the term in Thai) or a connection register.

To start, we take the line strip; we can also take a pencil and a ruler, and draw from the central part of the switch, down, two parallel lines, separated by about 5 cm, to the height at which we want to have the plug.

Plugs, for aesthetics, always look better in the lower part of the wall (about 40cm from the ground approximately) or another reason may be because if we put the plug at a higher height and we want to put a piece of furniture or a box on that wall. If, by chance, we want the plug at the other end of the wall, we draw two different parallel lines along the bottom of the wall to where we want to have the plug.

At the end of the lines, where we want the plug, we open a hole in the wall, enough to fit the universal wall box for the plug. Once we have the path laid out where the cables are going to go, the radial starts operating. Once we have the last lines with the radial, we will proceed to take the hammer and the cold cutter.

In the hollow of the box, where the plug goes, we place the box with cement. The box has some holes in which we will have to put the cables and the corrugated tube, enough to be able to manipulate later. At the other end, we will use the terminal strip to splice the cables (important! Whenever we are going to handle cables, we have to make sure that the current is cut off).

Remove Electrical Current

Both in the register and the power plug adapter (หัว แปลง ปลั๊กไฟ which is the term in Thai), the connection goes inside, so we will have to open and connect inside each one of them. When we have one end connected, we close it well and seal what remains of the wall with the cement on one side and the other.

We connect the cables to the plug and place the plugin the desired and realized place. After all this, we will only need to paint the wall, and it will be ready to give the current and plugin what we need.
