Spacer Shim
Quick Fix Electrical Spacers

Adjusts The Depth Of Your Power2U To Fit Flush With Wallplates
An incorrectly installed Power2U will have the faceplate misaligned. In order for the USB ports to properly activate, the faceplate must be flush against the outlet (not necessarily flush against the wall) so the Safety Shutters can fully engage the USB port on/off switches.

If the Power2U is seated too deep into the electrical box or the outlet is not parallel with the wall, these spacer shims are needed behind the outlet screws to bring the outlet forward so the faceplate can seat flush against the outlet.

If the faceplate is not flush against the outlet, the shutters may not depress the switches when plugging in a USB cord.

A faceplate will not seat flush against the outlet if the Power2U is seated too far into the electrical box or if the outlet is not parallel with the wall.

Spacers twist apart easily for desired thickness.

Rating: 5/5 Cheaper than in store January 29, 2015 These are great spacerers for mis fitting switches and outlets. By folding them together the pins lock into the holes and hold them firmly inplace so you can snap them on the mounting screw.

I would recommend this item to a friend!
