How do I install a gang box?

The drywall has already been put up, but I'd like to install a gang box. How do I do this?

You'll need an "old work" gang box (the kind with flaps). Find a location in your drywall where there is NOT a stud. Cut a hole in the drywall the size of the gang box. Push the box into the wall and use a screwdriver to open the box's flaps.

They make what is called a "pop in" gang box. It is really simple to install. The most difficult part is cutting the hole the correct size.

Use a cut-in box that is made to hold to the drywall and then feed the wire down the wall from the top of the wall.
