InventHelp Introduces Modified Electrical Masonry Box (OKK-188)

Share Article

InventHelp, based in Pittsburgh, is America's leading inventor service company, and is submitting the Electrical Masonry Box with Stops to companies for review.

"When installing an electrical system on commercial cinder-block walls, masonry boxes are used to gather electrical wiring for outlets, light switches, computer connections, etc," said an inventor from Moore, Okla. "The masonry boxes are designed to be installed flush with the cinder-block wall. As the mortar fills the cinder block, it pushes the masonry box beyond the face of the wall. The electrician is then required to shave this metal masonry box in order to make it flush again. This process is time-consuming and frustrating, especially when multiple boxes are used. My idea eliminates this problem."

He created a prototype for the Electrical Masonry Box with Stops to make it easier to install an electrical masonry box. The unit will not extend past the surface in which it is installed. The design ensures that the box is flush with the wall. Additionally, this eliminates the need to go back and grind or shave down the box, which saves time and effort.

The inventor's professional experience inspired the idea. "I am an electrician and have worked on many jobs and seen this problem many times," he said. "I feel that this new design will save time and money, and eliminate the frustration of having to shave down standard boxes."

The original design was submitted to the Oklahoma City office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
