    Back Box- Not Gangable

    Devices caling for a 3-1/2" depth back box that's non gangable. I'm confused by the non gangable part? Is that a 1G box?

    Gangable boxes have sides that are removable so you can screw several together.

    Got it. So this is a 3g box without removable side. It's not gangable obviously, correct?

    Yes that is not gangeable but it also does not come in 3.5" deep either so I would guess that it isn't the box you asked about in your OP.

    Agree. The 1G device box you listed is 3.5" depth?
