During the remodeling process or the construction of homes, offices, commercial buildings, and the like, electrical outlet boxes are installed throughout. Sheetrock or other material is typically installed on the walls and then the builder must make an opening in the sheetrock for installing the outlets or switches within the boxes.

Builders spend a good deal of time shaping the opening and often times, mistakes are made. If the opening is the incorrect size, or is off center, the builder will need to spend time and money to repair the mistake. Often times, patching and re-cutting are required. A more efficient method is needed.
