Abstract

A multi-use electrical box has first and second side walls, lower and upper walls, which, together, form a front opening into the electrical box, and a rear wall. The first side wall includes a plurality of removable alignment tabs extending therefrom. The lower and upper walls each have external grooves which accommodate external attachment nails for the electrical box. One or more exit holes are provided in the first side wall for fastener screws. A slidable wall is removably mounted in the electrical box to receive one or more fastener screws at desired locations within the box.

Description

    FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates to adaptable electrical boxes with multiple uses.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • Molded electrical boxes designed for nail attachment to wooden beams or studs are well known in the industry. Molded electrical boxes with internal screw attachment are known in the prior art. U.S. Pat. No. 5,600,093 of Herth et al. describes such a dual purpose electrical box which is attached by two internal screws; it is especially convenient to use for old work. A pending application of Herth describes an electrical box for single fastener attachment using a single internal screw; for new work, two anti-rotation and positioning tabs are molded onto the mounting side of the box. The prior art does not reveal molded electrical boxes equipped with features permitting the three different types of attachment methods described above.
  • OBJECTS OF THE INVENTION
  • It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide an adaptable electrical box with multiple attachment locations for multiple uses.
  • It is also an object of this invention to improve over the disadvantages of the prior art.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • In keeping with these objects and others which may become apparent, this invention is a molded electrical box with features which make it adaptable to external nail attachment to a beam or stud as well as either single or dual internal screw attachment. The electrical box is usable for new work or for old work where the internal screw feature permits convenient attachment through a hole in the wall surface adjacent to a stud that is sized to the perimeter of the box. Resetting of the box to accommodate a modification of a wall surface which affects the thickness of the wall covering is also facilitated by the internal screw features.
  • A single molded electrical box serves the needs of three separate sub markets for both new and old work. Thus the box can be molded in high volume using techniques which take advantage of economy of scale, such as an eight cavity mold. The electrical box has a smooth outer mounting wall surface with a plurality of exit holes, such as, for example, three screw fastener exit holes. Inside, on the mounting wall are molded one or more short parallel rails having a particular geometric crossectional configuration, such as two rails, with, for example, a “T” or dovetail crossection (or any other engaging geometrical crossectional shape). A separate mounting block with corresponding mounting slots is slid onto the rails and pushed to the back end of the electrical box. The rails may have any geometric shaped crossectional configuration mating with a corresponding inverse geometric configuration of the mounting slots. Mounting blocks are molded in several varieties, for multiple fasteners, such a pair of fasteners or otherwise, or for single fastener mounting. They have either a single angled screw guide in the middle or a plurality of separate angled screw guides at the distal side edges of the block. When inserted in the electrical box on the rails provided, the mounting block exit hole or holes for the screw fastener or fasteners line up in registration with the center fastener exit hole in the electrical box or with the plurality of outer exit holes on the mounting side of the electrical box. The electrical box also has a plurality of alignment tabs, such as a pair of tabs, molded at right angles to the mounting side for new work; these also act as anti-rotation tabs in case the single screw fastener option is selected. These tabs have break-off perforations for easy removal for old work use.
  • For nail attachment in new work, nails are inserted across a recess at the top and bottom of the electrical box each nail supported by a molded groove the full width of the box and one or more capturing straps which are molded to capture the opposite surface of the nail shaft thus forming a nail guide which is the equivalent of brackets with holes. While two or more straps are preferable, if a single strap extends longitudinally of a sufficient length, it may also form a nail guide.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
  • The present invention can best be understood in connection with the accompanying drawings. It is noted that the invention is not limited to the precise embodiments shown in drawings, in which:
  • FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a molded electrical box of this invention;
  • FIG. 2 is a perspective view of a two fastener mounting block, a single fastener mounting block, two mounting rails with “T” crossection, and two mounting rails with a dovetail crossection;
  • FIG. 3 is an end view of a rail with a “T” crossection;
  • FIG. 4 is an end view of a rail with a dovetail crossection;
  • FIG. 5 is a non-mounting side view of the molded electrical box showing nail groove and straps which form nail guides and,
  • FIG. 6 is a back elevation showing nails mounted on electrical box.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention has broad applications to many new work and old work electrical boxes of varying configurations. For illustrative purposes only, a preferred mode for carrying out the invention is described herein the drawing Figures.
  • Molded multi-mount electrical box 1 is shown in FIG. 1. Mounting side 2 has three fastener exit holes, center 3 and two side holes 4. Center hole 3 is used for single fastener attachment wherein alignment tabs 6 also double as anti-rotation tabs for new work applications. The two side holes 4 would be used for two-fastener screw attachment. Also seen in this view is one end of grooves 5 which support attachment nails (if used). This box will accommodate all three attachment methods with appropriate accessories. Tabs 6 are removed for old work applications.
  • FIG. 2 shows two-fastener mounting block 10 with dual angled screw guides 11 and mounting slots 12. Also shown is single fastener mounting block 15 with single angled screw guide 11 and mounting slots 12. Either of these mounting blocks 10 or 15 is mounted on the inside of mounting wall 2 of electrical box 1 on a pair of “T” crossection rails 18 (see FIG. 3) or on a pair of dovetail rails 20 (see FIG. 4) which are integrally molded on the inside surface of wall 2. The holes in the angled guides 11 are in positional registration with either exit hole 3 or holes 4 in wall 2 when slots 12 pushed in to the full extent onto rails 18 or 20.
  • FIGS. 5 and 6 illustrate the use of fastening nails with electrical box 1. Non-mounting side 25 is shown in FIG. 5 with nail groove 5 and mounting straps 26 forming a transverse nail guide to accept nails 30, as shown in back view FIG. 6. The back 28 of electrical box 1 is shown extending from nails 30 each captured by three molded strap members 26. While FIG. 6 shows one example depicting, for example, three straps 26, it is noted that any number of straps 26, such as one or more straps 26, may be used to capture nail 30.
  • In the foregoing description, certain terms and visual depictions are used to illustrate the preferred embodiment. However, no unnecessary limitations are to be construed by the terms used or illustrations depicted, beyond what is shown in the prior art, since the terms and illustrations are exemplary only, and are not meant to limit the scope of the present invention.
  • It is further known that other modifications may be made to the present invention, without departing the scope of the invention, as noted in the appended Claims.
