If you have a loose electrical switch or outlet, the attachment holes in the plastic electrical box are probably stripped or damaged. Instead of replacing the damaged plastic box, try using the G-Clip.
Install the G-Clip by pressing it onto the edge of the electrical box, over the damaged hole. The G-Clip provides a new threaded mounting point to reattach your switch or outlet.
The G-Clip can be installed by most homeowners or electricians in minutes, instead of taking hours to replace a damaged electrical box. It can be installed without damaging the drywall and it can be used in multi-gang plastic boxes.
Features of the G-Clip

Turn off power at the fuse box.
Check for NO power at the device and remove the cover.

Press down on the G-Clip and thread the screw in.

Comments From Customers
- So I just tried your product this morning and all I can say is WOW! I am a 61 year old g-grandma and not very 'tool' savvy at all. When I found your product online I decided to give it a try after watching the video on how to install them. I had just remodeled the room I needed to use them in for my grandchildren and sure didn't realize that you would have to take out some sheetrock to install a new electrical box. The loose plugs were unsightly so I started researching how to repair them. That is when I came across your website. These should be sold in every hardware store! I will be telling everyone about them. I fixed 2 outlets in about 20 minutes and am thrilled with the results. If I can do it, anyone can! Thank you for making such a great product!
- 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.

- 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.
The G-Clip was invented by Michael P. Walton. With over 40 years experience as an electrical contractor, Michael worked on and replaced countless damaged plastic electrical wall boxes. He experienced first-hand the many challenges an installer faces during the replacement process. While in retirement, Mike worked to invent and manufacture a time-saving device that can be used by electricians and do-it-yourself homeowners. His invention, the G-Clip, eliminates the need to replace a damaged plastic electrical wall box.
