  • The total cost for materials per box is about the same for any box used.
  • The total cost for box install and wiring path rough-in is $5-$10 less with Plastilock boxes. The total cost of the wiring rough-in is 20-30% less with Plastilock boxes. Plastilock boxes will meet Code, where "cut-in" wiring may or may not.**

attaching Romex, connectors or sweeps & conduit, depending on box type.
