3D model description

Shallow AC Outlet Box
by RebelTaz

I have a retractable reel AC extension cord that has a defective outlet strip. I'm replacing it with a standard 15-amp AC wall outlet, but I needed a box for it. Most commercially available boxes are too deep and I didn't have any of the shallow ones on hand, so I whipped this up in FreeCAD and printed it in PETG. The box is JUST deep enough for the outlet and the wires to fit. The outlet is held in place by the standard 6-32 screws that come with it and the faceplate is held in place by another 6-32 screw (1/4"-1/2" long) with a countersunk head.
