Quick and easy repair of stripped, broken, plastic electrical boxes
Comments From Satisfied Customers
I recently had two stripped out electrical boxes and had no good solution for repairing them. Everything I would rig up would simply fail. I knew I had no choice but to pull out these boxes and replace them with new ones. Just the thought was very unpleasing. So I decided to do some research in slim hopes of finding anything that offered a better solution than ripping out the old boxes and replacing them with new. I eventually cam across these "G-Clips" and without hesitation I ordered a pack. They were inexpensive so worse case scenario if they didn't work, I'd be back where I started. Like many of the other reviewers, these things were a life saver. Took longer to pull them out of the package than to get them installed. And once you do, they really hold. These are simply ingenious. I now keep a few packs on hand inside my equipment trailer.
This product does exactly what it promises ..... only took 5 mins to install. Saved me having to demo old box out of wall and install a new one.
Thank you ...... I would recommend always having these on hand!
This product saved the day for my broken gang box. Electrical outlet was loose due to screw threads not having anything to grasp onto. The g-clip was pretty easy to install, just requiring a bit of patience and some pressure to force the clip into place. It took maybe 5 minutes and was much easier than replacing the gang box. Originally thought just one clip was needed but found out both needed replaced. Very happy these clips came in a 10-pack.
I ordered 10 g-clips as a homeowner to repair a broken box and to have more on hand as needed. I just wanted to say that this product worked flawlessly and took no time at all to install. My light switch is now snug as a bug and I can't express how impressed I am with this product. Thanks for your innovative invention!

I just wanted to share my appreciation of your product, the G-clip. I am a rank amateur when it comes to electrical work, but one thing I do know how to do is replace a light switch—until I pulled out the old screw and the plastic holding it basically crumbled apart. This product saved me a call to the electrician to replace it. Great product, thank you.

Wanted to let you know I appreciate your product very much. It worked perfectly. The design allowed for the fact that the old box had to have a chunk with the broken old screw removed. John, Lorton VA
Worked like a charm - even on one that was substantially broken along the top. Brilliant and ingenious. Saved me a lot of time. David, Webster Grove MO
I just wanted to say thank you for creating this product. It worked great and saved me so much work. I also really appreciate your willingness to help and answer questions. Thank you again! Andy, Appleton WI
I got the G-Clips yesterday and installed them today. Totally Awesome Product!! I fixed 4 duplex receptacle boxes in my house in 20 minutes. It would have taken a whole day or more with the patching and painting that would likely have been required if the boxes had been replaced. A super fix. I will tell my friends and colleagues who are handy and will spread the word. Many thanks again for saving me a lot of time. Chris, Oregon WI
It took me all of five minutes, including fooling around with a couple screwdrivers to catch the lip of the box out from under the Formica edge, to catch into the G clip, then it took me longer to screw the 2 inch 6-32 screws in that it took to install the G clip. That receptacle is rock solid now! Donna, West Grove PA
